Do any of you quarantine virus emails, or do you all drop them like we do?
The problem is that HTML.Phishing.Auction-214 appears to be blocking genine ebay emails. Unfortunately this is causing a bit of a load on our servers as loads of these are getting sent and resent and resent, in large numbers.

There's nothing I can do about this without the actual email in question. If anybody has a copy then maybe we can report it as a false positive.
All I know is that emarsys.net genuinely sends marketing emails on behalf of ebay (at least according to Google), which is why I assume these emails are genuine.
This has been going on for several weeks now. I'm surprised someone else hasn't caught it and reported it.
Or am I sooo totally wrong I'm going to feel very stupid?
