    Is it possible to have return a different exit value
    on detection of a virus? I am running it on a box which monitors the
    Internet connection an with the mailsnarf utility captures all email
    which pass by, then i use a small perl script to pipe these emails
    to the sanitizer script, but at the moment i cannot differentiate between
    rewriten filenames and mail messages with virii.

    Thanx in advance,
