    I had to switch from Outlook to another email client and currently have DreamMail. Will NOD32 scan incoming email for DreamMail with EMON in its default settings? If not, is there some way to configure NOD to scan DM?

    FWIW- I have DM set as my default email client.

    thanks

    IMON is application agnostic (it works with the POP3 protocol at the winsock layer)
    EMON is a specific Outlook add-on.

    So IMON is scanning the email before I get it in DreamMail?

    Right :)
    When you contact your mail servers, IMON intercepts the stream before it arrives to the mail client.
    And, don't forget that AMON will scan every file on access/execute/write/open.

    Thanks Lucas. I just checked with IMON open while I was receiving some email and it does scan incoming email. Actually I sent an email from one of my accounts on yahoo to one that would be uploaded to my desktop email client. IMON scanned the incoming email.
