    I was reading Scot's Newsletter for June 06. http://www.scotsnewsletter.com/81.htm#aviii

    In his search for the best Av he trialed NOD, and made the following comment.
    QUOTE
    "As to my other chief complaint, about inbound and outbound email scanning, Eset insists that its IMON does scan inbound email for viruses and malware, and the company admits that it does not scan outbound email (other than Outlook email) for the bad stuff. I have a problem with the lack of universal outbound scanning." End Quote

    I was unaware of that fact. I tend to agree with him about outbound scanning. I realize that if nothing gets on the computer, there is no danger of sending it elsewhere, but I still like the capability, "just in case."

    I am under the impression that most of the AVs do scan outbound mail.

    Any comments or reasons why NOD does not scan outbound email?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    AMON the resident scanner scans all files opening and closing, so anything being attached to an email would be caught.

    Cheers :D
