then look at archives of this mailing list.. instructions were 
posted...?   maybe 3 to 6 months ago.

its made difficult on purpose.

ps, if an internal user gets a virus and sends (tries to send) 50,000 
viruses out... do you REALLY want to notify them 50,000 times?

just SWATCH it and its a lot cleaner.  swatch point to a perl script 
that can notify the user when first one is sent.  maybe limit 1 per hour.
