[Mimedefang] Sendmail loop?

Perhaps someone with more sendmail knowledge than I have can 
help me.  When a virus with a bogus address arrives the warning 
message reply bounces.  It then gets resent.  I think MimeDefang or 
sndmail is sending it with service unavailable status which causes 
the sender to keep trying.
