    Correct me if I'm wrong. Clamwin has a plugin module only in Outlook that scans emails attachments when they open. Wouldn't it be better to have emails being scanned before they reach your pc? Isn't there a way to improve this freeware open-source AV?:)

    The other thing I found annoying when I tried that was how long it took for Clam to actually scan a simple attachment... it was painful! :p

    I remember I somehow disabled the attachment scanning because it rendered the AV useless for me. Once that was gone, it wasn't so bad. But overall Clam for Win is pretty slow anyway.. not my cup of tea...
