Considering the amount of email traffic generated by responding to 
forged  virus laden email from culprits like sobig should email virus 
scanning systems be configured to send notifications back to 
sender or not?

If your scanner doesn't know if a virus forges addresses, and hence no
point replying, then bin it and buy a proper one
