Scan existing Outlook emails
« on: February 24, 2004, 02:43:47 PM »

I've just installed Avast. Looks pretty good so far.
Is there any way to scan existing Outlook emails? I have been notified that I have a MyDoom Virus in Outlook.PST. This can not be repaired & I obviously don't want to delete it. Just wondering if I can scan all emails and delete the infected one.

You can configure the resident provider and choose to scan the existing emails or only the un-read ones. Is the first page of settings (Customize). Could you try what will you get?

I suggest you manually scan the outlook.pst file too  ;)

Thanks for the swift reply. I have it set to scan existing emails, but unfortunately it doesn't identify which one is infected, just the .PST file. I will scan Outlook.PST manualy to see what happens.

BTW, is there a free product that will run on Win2k server?

I think that from Alwil Software not...
It won't be so easy as this OS is a server and not usually used at home  ::)
