Scanning Email
« on: March 23, 2004, 07:39:42 PM »
Hello

I'm new to this forum, but have been using Home 4.1 for a few months and like it. A couple questions....

- how do I setup/ check to make sure it's scanning my email properly. I don't use Outlook, but a different client that utilizes both POP and Internet account emails.

- I manually run the "thorough scan and archive files". Is this correct? Or should I be doing something different? Does the resident scanner protect me without having to do manual scans?

I look forward to the replies.

For non MS Outlook clients you should use Mail Protection Wizard.

Usually Standard scan without Archive scanning is enough.
I do such scan only when i install antivirus,so im sure the machine is clean.
After that moment Real-time (On-Access) protection is keeping my PC secure.

Thanks for the feedback. I've got the mail scanner working now, BUT I have internet accounts in the email program. How do I set them up, as it won't work when I set it up like the POP accounts
