Touche!  That's a good point.

Pseudo code like this might be a very good idea:

if (virus test was yes) and defined($SendmailMacros{"auth_type"}) then 
send a warning to the admin and sender.

Otherwise, if it's in inbound virus, you are just going to be sending 
backscatter which is why MD changed the default not to notify senders 
for viri ages back, I believe.
