    Default attachment / mail scanning



    Hello can anyone put me straight on something please?

    ZA never seems to take any interest in my web based email (Yahoo) I am under the impression that it only monitors web based mail if routed through Outlook Express which I don t use.

    As I understand it On Access scanning means that ZA will check any file when opened but there is no reassurance that this is happening.

    My Internet Explorer is set to block images, and Yahoo provides free (Norton) scanning for attachments, which seems to work ok.

    I would like to manually scan attachments with ZA as well, but the only way I can see to do it is to download the attachment to a folder then right click and use Scan with Zone Alarm but this does mean I have to allow the file access onto my computer before I can scan it.

    Is this the best solution?

    Many thanks,

    Hi!
    per definition ZA cannot scan remotely a file that is stored not on the system nor stored in an accessible remote drive.
    ZA will scan any file 'on access' (i.e. when you open them) so you are perfectly safe.

    To be sure, just scan the files once downloaded (right click --> Scan with ZA antivirus)

    Thanks fax,
    Got the wind up a bit the other day, had an email with some animations (Incredimail) that the sender said they didn't deliberately attach.
    So needed some reassurance!
    All the best.
