    Default Missing Email Virus Scan Feature in ZAISS7?

    Hi,

    In Outlook 2003, I have 3 huge ".pst" files (using compressible encryption) containing 5 years worth of email.
    Some of the email has attachments.

    I want to use the built in Kaspersky Anti-Virus to do an on-demand scan of all this Email.
    I don't see a way to do this. Instead the only options I see from within Outlook is to
    let Mailsafe do a scan for junk mail (which I don't need to do).

    I can't right click on these ".pst" files from Windows Explorer and choose scan with Zone Alarm Anti-virus,
    because these ".pst" files are encrypted. Instead I need a way to do this from within Outlook 2003.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hi!nope, its not possible... you will need to decrypt the files and run a scan on pst.Not sure however if pst files will be decompressed and checked by KAV engine.Some users advised to never scan pst with AV scanner due to the risk of corrupting the file.Cheers,Fax

    Hi Fax,

    Thanks for the information. This is a severe limitation of ZAISS 7, as a lot of viruses spread via Email.

    Besides ZAISS 7's MailSafe (which doesn't use anti-virus signatures), please confirm
    that ZAISS 7 doesn't provide any "On Access" or "On Demand" protection
    of incoming / outgoing emails from Kaspersky.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hi!probably I have been misunderstood... ZASS does check e-mails "on access" as well as any other file.The issue was different, you mention an encrypted pst... when a file is encrypted there is no way to check for virus unless you decrypt it.Cheers,Fax
