Thank you very much, it works.

Now I tried to send a notification to a sender from my net who has sent
a message with a banned file.

If I set

$warnbannedsender = 1;

then both sender in my net and recipient out of my net get

I tried also to set

$policy_bank{'ORIGINATING'} = {
  originating => 1,
  warnbannedsender => 1,
