I attest to Amavis on this one. Message headers, virus found, and also if
you quarentine the message it sends the quarentined file name.

On this subject, my major pet peeve would be that at least 85% of the
bounce messages that I have seen coming back here, don't contain enough
information to figure out where the Original Message
Amavis sends back in the notification message the original message's
headers (plus more if you wish).
amavis-new has templates and such.
You would think other people who pay their developers nice sums of money
could do the same.
