avast! Internet Mail virus information
« on: March 19, 2003, 06:46:54 PM »
First I must say, that avast! Internet Mail removes infected attachments from email just fine!

But I suppose that there should be a little more information in that cleaned message?

I tried with different email clients and WinXP (Pegasus, OE, Outlook, Eudora,Netscape), results are the same.
This test email had attached.

Here is what is in the cleaned message:
