    I use Yahoo for my email. Recently, I received an email with a suspicious attachment. I right-clicked the attachment and saw that there was no way to scan just the attachment. Since I've only recently gone to NOD 32 for my AV program, perhaps I haven't set something up right? How can scan an individual Yahoo email attachment without opening it?

    Hi jimmie123,

    and welcome to wilders...

    If you think it's suspicious... just delete it. do you know the sender?

    not that way but remember NOD32 has web protection.

    download the attachment (not suspicious one) and scan it. I suggest you take a look at: EAV v3 Tutorial

    Normally, I would just go ahead and delete if I don't know the sender (which I didn't). Much easier than displaying full headers and attempting to track down who the "real" sender is. I was just curious as to what payload the file contained, it was a .bmp file. It's been deleted......thanks for the reply, and I will take that tutorial. Jim:D
