Take That, Server!

We recently switched to a new email server at work. One of the quirky features I’ve noticed since the conversion is that when corresponding to someone outside of the company, after about three exchanges the words RE: [WARNING – NOT VIRUS SCANNED] appear in the subject line. And continue to repeat themselves with each exchange. Annoying, yes, but something I generally just overlook.

In an email exchange today with a friend, the annoyance popped up in the subject header. After several quick replies back and forth, I received a response from my friend, with this added at the bottom:

RE: [WARNING – NOT VIRUS SCANNED]
RE: [WARNING – NOT VIRUS SCANNED]
RE: [WARNING – NOT VIRUS SCANNED]
