Do I understand correctly that ZAISS/Mailsafe doesn't really check inbound and outbound emails for viruses or spyware?
It seems to me that inbound email attachments are quarantined based on their extension only. Scanning them "on access" is adequate to protect me, I suppose, but it doesn't prevent me from forwarding emails with infected attachments, perhaps attachments I haven't opened, does it?
I am not sure what to make of "Outbound Mailsafe halts outgoing e-mail that displays virus-like activity". Is outbound e-mail checked for viruses or not? Is all outbound e-mail virus checked? Am I protected from forwarding an infected email whose attachment I may not have opened? Am I protected from sending an otherwise infected email?
So what kind of virus protection do people use for email that can coexist with ZAISS, especially with Eudora. (I know that the spam filter (Junk E-mail Filter) doesn't work with Eudora. Fortunately Eudora and my ISP both have effective spam filters.) I have access to F-Prot and Trend anti virus products in addition to the usual free ones. What about Vipre? Will these anti virus products coexist with XAISS? If I turn off the inbound/outbound Mailsafe & Junk Email filter? What do people do?
If I have misunderstood anything, I apologize, in advance. Thanks.
