I've got an issue with ZoneAlarm (latest version) and Thunderbird (I think).
Often Trojan-Spy.HTML.Fraud.gen gets found here via an "On-Access scan":
"C:\Documents and Settings\[User Folder]\Local Settings\Temp\newmsg"
Even if I quit Thunderbird I have no option but to reboot my file everytime someone (or something) sends me what I think is an infected email.
My thought (probably a bad one) was:
a) Get Thunderbird to change the temporary file path other than "C:\Documents and Settings\[User Folder]\Local Settings\Temp\newmsg" (although it seems that is impossible with Thunderbird).
b) Get ZoneAlarm to Exclude that path
c) Hope that the ZA InBound MailSafe Protection would pick up any viruses rather than the file scanner.
But then it appears "On-Access scan" picked it up first time rather than the SMTP scan. Why? Doesn't the SMTP scanner just scan port 25 for incoming/outgoing mails? Surely this would get priority first over the file scanner?. Why would the file scanner pick this up first rather than the SMTP scan?
I understand inbound/outbound mail mailsafe protection is supported with Thunderbird (as it just hooks into SMTP) but Junk Email filter is outlook only? Correct?
Any advise would be highly appreciated.
