Please re-read the message I wrote.

I was trying to paraphrase (rather ironically) the messages antivirus
software sends to forged envelope senders.

3) SMTP server != SMTP filter. (RFC 3234)

I wasn't aware of this distinction; I've always considered the

inline a virus-laden message than to accept-then-discard.

Thanks for pointing out the details!
