Mail::Milter::Module::VirusBounceSpew - milter to reject antivirus messages typically sent to forged "senders"
use Mail::Milter::Module::VirusBounceSpew; my $milter = new Mail::Milter::Module::VirusBounceSpew; my $milter2 = &VirusBounceSpew; # convenience
This module rejects messages at the DATA phase by searching for known signs of misconfigured antivirus software. An increasing problem on the Internet as of this writing is a tendency for viruses and trojans to send mail with a forged envelope from address. This is triggering antivirus warning messages back to these forged senders.
Creates a VirusBounceSpew milter object. The match rules are internally hardcoded and may be examined by reading the module source.
Sets the message used when rejecting messages.
This method returns a reference to the object itself, allowing this method call to be chained.
The rules could be much simpler, but at risk of catching legit mail. A future release will simplify the regex tests.

Hey! The above document had some coding errors, which are explained below:
- Around line 70:
- You can't have =items (as at line 82) unless the first thing after the =over is an =item
