      Description

      One of the subscribers to friends at SpamAssassin.apache.org just attempted to post a snippet of HTML code to the list, and received a bounce saying:

        From: Mail Delivery Subsystem <MAILER-DAEMON at feynman.cliq.com>
        Message-Id: <200502252119.j1PLJDql031950 at feynman.cliq.com>
        To: <spambouncer at feynman.cliq.com>
        MIME-Version: 1.0
        Content-Type: multipart/report; report-type=delivery-status;
                boundary="j1PLJDql031950.1109366353/feynman.cliq.com"
        Subject: Returned mail: see transcript for details
        Auto-Submitted: auto-generated (failure)

        This is a MIME-encapsulated message

        --j1PLJDql031950.1109366353/feynman.cliq.com

        The original message was received at Fri, 25 Feb 2005 13:19:04 -0800 (PST)
        from IDENT:spambouncer at localhost [127.0.0.1]

          ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
        <friends at spamassassin.apache.org>
            (reason: 552 Virus Found: HTML.Phishing.Bank-1 )

          ----- Transcript of session follows -----
        ... while talking to mail.apache.org.:
        >>> DATA

        554 5.0.0 Service unavailable

        <snip rest>


      The HTML code was, indeed, a part of the code from a phish message. However, we need to be able to discuss these techniques on-list, if at all possible, because it's a form of spam and that's what the list is there for. ;)

      Is there any way to turn off clamav scanning for this list (and dev@SpamAssassin as well if possible)?
