    I have been removing virus barrier and its component file through finder's search and noticed that the term "virus" returns these set of text files containing the name template-virus-sender.txt What are these files and are they any kind of malicious items or a part of the Lion OS?

    Where exactly are they located? Maybe turn on View > Show Path Bar to see the location. Since they are .txt files and the included text does not seem malicious, it is probably safe to delete them.

    This is why users shouldn't open the app packages.
    How could a txt file cause anything by the way?

    There are number of files with the same file name "template-virus-recipient.txt"

    Macintosh HD > private > etc > mail > amavisd > languages > es.lproj >

    is the location of one of these files. Any idea what they are ?

    What did u mean by "app packages" and how is this file gonna be a part of an app package?

    "How could a txt file cause anything by the way?"

    I don't know. Thats the main cause of the existence of this thread.

    Part of osx. I have it too. Looks like some kind of managed network email filtering system.
