    Default customize virus notification email ?

    Dear All,

    We're testing the anti-virus feature on Zimbra by EICAR testing pattern.

    1. login user1@domain from WebClient, send an email to user2@domain
    2. user1 will receive nothing
    3. user2 / admin will receive a notification , which reads like below :

    Subject: VIRUS (Eicar-Test-Signature) in mail TO YOU from (?)
    Sender: "Content-filter at my.domain" <admin@my.domain>

    Email body:

    Our content checker found
    virus: Eicar-Test-Signature

    in an email to you from unknown sender:

    claiming to be: <user1@my.domain>

    Content type: Virus
    Our internal reference code for your message is 09631-01/YI+iH3SYw+jE

    Return-Path: <user1@my.domain>
    X-Mailer: Zimbra 5.0.16_GA_2921.RHEL4 (ZimbraWebClient - FF3.0
    Message-ID: <18326726.21242352029690.JavaMail.root@my.domain >
    Subject: 3
    The message has been quarantined as: virus-YI+iH3SYw+jE

    Please contact your system administrator for details.


    the notification email can NOT display correct "user1" in the subject,
    and it also said :
    "in an email to you from unknown sender" in the email body.

    Are these normal hehavior?

    Is it possible to customize the sender :
    "Content-filter at my.domain" <admin@my.domain>

    just hope to keep it short , something like: admin@my.domain

    This is on 5.0.16 OSS edition.
    Any advice on these? Thanks in advance.

    Never updated these myself but a couple of things you will need to do :-

    1) Have a read through
    2) Have a look at the end of /opt/zimbra/amavisd/sbin/amavisd-new

    I believe you will need to take a copy of one of the templates from the end of the sbin file and append that somewhere in /opt/zimbra/conf/ Once changed ZCS will need to be restarted. You change the .in file so that /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf is preserved across restarts.
