You should not post your real email address unaltered (disguised) on
Usenet or in messageboard posts. It will be harvested by spambots and
you'll get lots more spam and viruses.
There really isn't any way to give you a specific answer with the little
information you provided. You didn't even mention the name of the
virus. However, from your brief description I would have to say that
your server - and possibly workstations - are still not clean. You need
to do a thorough virus and malware scan of all network machines.
Ideally, the network should be down when you do this because if you
have a network-aware worm, cleaning one pc while other are still
infected and on the network will just reinfect everything.
If your server has been compromised, best practice is to wipe it clean
and reimage with your most recent backup image.
If you would like more specific help, please repost with details about
your infection and what you've already done. Is Symantec Mail Security
a full-featured antivirus or does it only filter spam and attachments?
