    Hello drewm2,

    As long as you have your email client protection enabled, all of your e-mails are being scanned. This happens behind the scenes but you can look at the activity by performing the following:

    1) Open your ESET Smart Security Program and ensure you are in Advanced Mode (toggled by pressing Ctrl + M).

    2) Click on Protection status and choose Statistics.

    3) From the drop down menu located on the right, choose Email Client Protection and this will display a pie chart displaying information about your e-mails that have been scanned.

    Hope this helps.

    thx Mathew but unfortunately v4 ess was really playing havoc with my system(sluggish) and i could not get the right click scan option to work even with the option ticked to enable the feature, so im now back to 2.7 all is good.
