    Default Content Filter Virus Alerts sent to admin mailbox and recipient?

    Hi everyone

    Is it correct that content filter/virus reports get sent to the admin mailbox, as well as the original recipient?

    Is there a way to disable them getting sent to the admin mailbox?
    I've looked in the Admin UI under Global Settings, the AS/AV tab and there's no option for that.

    It's just the admin account gets filled with hundreds of these per day.
    I could create a filter to send them to Trash but I just wondered if there was an option hiding somewhere in the Admin UI that I hadn't spotted.

    Cheers, B

    I think this will do the trick, but I haven't tested.

    Edit /opt/zimbra/conf/amavisd.conf.in

    Look for the line $virus_admin = '@@av_notify_user@@'; # notifications recip.

    Change it to $virus_admin = ''; # null notifications recip, disables notification to admin.

    You'll then want to trigger a rewrite of amavisd.conf with zmamavisdctl restart

    This is based on discussion at View topic - Virus Notification Routing

    Ok that's quite cool. Thanks for the info.

    Just to confirm, this only affects the admin notification?
    The user will still get notified, is that correct?

    Actually, I think I have a better way of doing what you originally requested.

    It turns out that both recipient warning and admin warning in Zimbra are controlled by Zimbra configuration options, called respectively zimbraVirusWarnRecipient and zimbraVirusWarnAdmin. See http://www.zimbra.com/forums/install...-messages.html and Zimbra Attributes ZCS6 - Zimbra :: Wiki

    So really all you need to do is (as zimbra user):
    Code:
    zmprov mcf zimbraVirusWarnAdmin FALSE
    Then zmamavisdctl restart.

    And yes, only the user will be notified, unless you also also change zimbraVirusWarnRecipient.
