Is it possible to make the virus scanner add spam score to an email if a virus was found?

You may have noticed that all my forum posts are about Kerio's spam prevention. This is because Kerio is a fantastic product, but I STILL get alot of spam through to my inbox. But I feel that the introduction of dns blacklist checking of all servers in the header ( http://forums.kerio.com/index.php?t=msg&th=7817&star t=0&S=774de974e19603d6f72037af2d59a40b) and adding a spam score to emails with viruses would be great additions to Kerio's current library of spam prevention.

My other question is about the order of operation for the mail server. I get this error ALOT;
[22/Dec/2005 12:40:02] Message from <lqspveol<_at_>brownsofwem.com> temporarily rejected: sender domain does not resolve

There are several domains which are attempting to do this, and these domains obviously aren't handled by my mail server, as I only allow mail from my own domains. My point is, shouldn't the mail be rejected purely on the fact that the sender domain doesn't exist on my server before even trying to resolve the domain?

I don't know whether this would be any more effective than "temporaily rejecting", but I would assume they are different return codes and the sending server should stop trying if it is permanently rejected. Please correct me if I'm wrong :)

Thanks alot,
Tom.

This may be a silly question, but why would you want to accept something positively identified as a virus?

That is a very good point, any legitimate emails shouldn't contain a virus. I will simply block them from now on.

I don't really know why I was expecting to recieve legit emails with a virus unless the checker gave false positives or if someone sent an important email and their computer was infected and sending out viruses, but in this case, they should be clean before sending anyway.

Thanks for the slap in the face :)
