Sounds like a good default behavior to me. If you really want to enable
it, look in /etc/sysconfig/clamav-milter and get rid of the --quiet
flag. Remember that alot of virus' use faked From: addresses so
notifying the 'sender' is a useless thing, and in most cases generates
spam. I haven't used Windows to send email in years, yet I get several
"Norton AV found: <foo!> in an email from you..." almost daily from
people that I do not know.
