Why two postfix configurations in the first place?  Is there some reason 
that it is good to stop viruses from coming in, but not good to stop them 
from going out?

jc  (Who is appalled at the lack of *outbound* virus scanning, especially 
given the crappy status of many inbound scans that give false positives, 
which can cause big problems for a list manager who runs a list that merely 
discusses email viruses.  I believe you should subject your internal users 
to your anti-virus filter effects *before* you subject outsiders who are 
emailing in.)

p.s.  Please fix your line length.
