Greetings, Jonathan Siegle!
> In the RELEASE_NOTES under "COMPATIBILITY WITH 2.6.4 / 2.6.5 / 2.6.6",
> there is discussion on why the default for $final_virus_destiny was
> changed to D_DISCARD from D_BOUNCE.
> When people talked about this, was RFC 5321 section 2.1 brought up? An
> archive thread on this is just fine.
> Why would it be bad to accept the virus e-mail and then do the following:
> Strip off the virus.
> Send the rest of the e-mail to the original recipient?
