It would be nice to have a list of ip addresses and email addresses for
notification where the system would send the notification to the address of
the postmaster or the IT support in charge of that IP add or system
overriding the sender address.

Have a case here of a local ISP that could care less that several of their
customers are infected and spewing traffic. He did not do a thing until I
started to manually forward every warning I got to him.. he fixed the
problem in 1 hour. :)

Also, if a local-rules recognition pattern is written for a
known-forging worm (e.g. SoBig.F) then we can turn off sender
notification explicitly.

What nuts do with guns is terrible, certainly. But what evil or crazy
people do with *anything* is not a valid argument for banning that item.
