Stop GroupShield from sending clean mail

By swomack ·
McAfee's GroupShield for Exchange 2000 sends the usless remains of an infected email with a stupid attachment called Replaced Infected File.txt. Our users have been getting a lot of these and I would like to tell GroupShield not to send these usless things on to the recipient. I know there must be a reason it does it but I have not see any reason in the past 3 years that I have been using GroupShield.

You can configure GroupShield to send theese "useless" remains of email to whatever mailbox you want, o no mailbox at all.
Anyway, the pourpose is to know that an email arrived (a friend or supplier might be infected and not know it)

Were exactly do you configure GroupShield to send these useless remains to whatever mailbox, or no mailbox? Give me the details and I'll give you the points.

I figured that is the reasoning behind sending them on but in reality, a huge majority of the viruses that come into our organization were not intentionally sent from a friend or supplier and the From field is usually spoofed so you can never tell who it is from anyway. Those useless emails just freak out or annoy users. Then they call me.

Thanks for the response.
