We have Network Associates’ GroupShield for Exchange on our email server to prevent bad attachments from getting to our users. For each attachment that is quarantined, the administrators (that’s everyone in the IT Department here) get an alert. Ever since the SoBig.f virus found its way on the Internet, we have been getting hammered with these alerts. Over the weekend, I received 46,000+ messages. Luckily, I have a rule that diverts the alert messages to another folder as soon as they come in. Unfortunately, my boss did not do this so when he came back from vacation he was greeted with 96,000+ messages in his inbox.
