Just to make sure everyone who hasn't been following this stuff is on
the same page...they're getting sent directly to list members, not
through the list...they get intercepted by the antivirus software
long before they make it to mailman, and if it doesn't catch it,
Mailman nukes the attachment and anything except plaintext....

...but yeah, we've had about 4-5 copies, at least, get intercepted by
the virus scanner, from the notifications I've received(you guys
shouldn't get those notifications, btw, but I think you are.)
