I feared that would be the case.
I would move anti-virus testing from clients to the mail server - at
least for outgoing mail and especially for those roaming users. Let them
switch off outbound mail checking by Norton Antivirus and on your
Sendmail mail server install clamav-milter to let it check for virus'.
Another good idea is to kick and ban such horrible software like OE.
There are much better 'free' alternates like Thunderbird.
