Bloodhound is the advance heuristic technology used by Symantec products to detect the viruses and worm for which virus definitions are not created yet or you may say they are unknow viruses. But they are detected since the behaviour of the files detected are similar to the know viruses.

If you are getting those alerts it means that Symantec Mail Security for Exchange is removing the message which may contain the malicious code in them.

So I would say that your mail server is been targeted by the spammer and they are sending malware/spyware attached to the email messages.

Further, it is also been found that some legitimate files are also been detected by Bloddhound as malicious but they were not. So in some case it is just false positive. But you are getting 20 or more in a day so I think it is not the case here.

I hope that would help.
