    Is it possible to make nod32 delete infected outlook express-email? During scans with 'full options' outlook express .dbx files seem to hold infected messages but nod32 doesn't delete them. I tried local scans in cleaning mode with every delete option enabled...

    Hi Bobby01, welcome to Wilders.

    No, because of the way Microsoft designed Outlook Express, doing so would remove the entire folder.

    Cheers :D

    Does that mean that converting the mail into pst-format would give us a workaround?

    How do you have IMON setup to handle infected emails?

    Cheers :D

    Bobby01, are you talking about infected e-mail that was already in your Outlook Express folders, before you installed NOD32? Is there any way you can export them to Outlook? The reason I ask is that EMON can manipulate (scan/repair/delete etc.) the individual messages within Outlook. Once they are scanned with EMON, you may import them back into Outlook Express, and then depend on IMON to catch any future viruses.

    We imported infected pc's in our network environment, converterd outlook express mail into outlook 2003 mail and waited if our xmon scanner would be able to delete all infected mail traffic. Everything seems to have worked out right but things were a little scary. We blocked the use of outlook express but still get to machines with infected .dbx files that we have to delete.
