lees4,

Here is part of a post from my friend Technical -
Quote
You can check this:
1. Looking at the icon in the system tray
2. Adding a note in the Inbound/Outbound messages (both for Internet Mail or MS Outlook if you use it)
3. Right clicking a message, choose properties and see if there are two headers like these:
X-Antivirus: avast! (VPS 0404-5, 08-04-2004), Inbound message
X-Antivirus-Status: Clean

I have attached a picture of what Avast's email checking icon looks like.  ;)

Happy Easter

maybe you can also insert clean note into any incoming or outgoing messages... ;)

this option is available from the mail provider of the resident shield..

Well ....I went to my ISP (SBC) (my mail provider) and I think they provide a mail virus scanner that is already integrated in their browser.  When I open a attached e-mail, it asked me if I want to scan it and I click yes, it scans it with Nortan Antivirus! So I am still confused somewhat. I had NAV before Avast! but uninstalled it.  So I am not really sure what is going on. ???

Thanks for your help ;D

Also, when I uninstalled NAV it did not show any files that  were left over.  I think I will contact SBC and ask them about NAV to see if it is integrated with the browser and if I can change it somehow.


Thanks!

Newbie here...How can I tell if my e-mail is being scanned.

You could turn on the "Show detailed info" in the mail scanner module. Then all mailen (in and out) will show as a line at the bottom of the desktop while beeing scanned. Nice feature. Mails with viruses will show in yellow as well - easy to see

Okay cojo, I will try that and see what happens. I also contacted SBC to see if NAV is already integrated in the mail browser.  

Thanks again!

The mail scanner module...is that in the e-mail wizard? or is that located somewhere else?

The mail scanner module...is that in the e-mail wizard? or is that located somewhere else?

The module is 'Internet Mail provider', you can reach it by left clicking the 'a' blue icon on the system tray. Choose Customize and go to the tab that Lars talked about.

The Mail Protection Wizard has nothing to do with 'warnings' about scanning. It only configures the email accounts to scan or not.
