    Can Etrust av 7 promo check incoming email and attachments. Can I integrate Etrust with Eudora to have real time email scan?

    Thanks

    Not sure but, from the help files:

    Select the Incoming and Outgoing Messages check box to enable realtime scanning by the email option. If this option is disabled, there is no email protection

    Add: It's difficult for me to test as my ISP scans all my email and I use attachnent filtering.
    I do know with scan incoming/ outcoming files enabled ,I cannot download eicar test files .

    if you mean a mail scanner like NAV's, then no :'(
    but the realtime monitor is so good catching viruses..
    I had an e-mail with a .pif attached file infected with Sobig.F, the message was delivered to my inbox but I could not save it to my HDD as eTrust stooped it at once ;) ..

    I also have found that the EZ free firewall has excellent mail protection protecting from
    mailicious code or viruses. It quarantines these attachments preventing them running . It seems to jump in now before even the "real time monitor " has a chance . So with the promo s excellent monitor and the EZ firewalls mail protection I think one is very well covered .
    However even without EZ one is well covered.
    Another nice one to try is http://www.jasons-toolbox.com/test-defenses.asp

    Thanks for the answers to both of you! Which of the two scanning engined do you generally use, VET or Inoculate?

    Groundling, how do you mean when you say that you use the attachment filtering?

    Thanks.

    My firewall (outpost) has an attachment filter plugin.
    If an attachment has for instance a .scr ending it will rename it and move it to another folder. In essence it quarrantines the attachment. There's a choice of various rules. Fairly simple, but it helps by removing the possibility of accidentally running an attachment.

    In outlook express ,under message rules, you
    can also set some rules regarding attachments, including not downloading from the server.

    As result of Swen my Isp began scanning email at the server. (using Symantec), and they've always had good antispam.
    So with their AV, the filter and etrust 7 , I'm fairly well covered.
    against nasty attachments.
    But it's not possible for me to
    send or receive an eicar test file via POP mail .
    And with etrust incoming/outgoing enabled, I can't even download it! LOL
    I have to start turning things off to test, and then the ISP blocks it!

    If your e-mail client supports command-line scans then you can use Etrust like this:
    Code:
    C:\Program Files\CA\SharedComponents\ScanEngine\Inocmd32.exe -ACT MOVE -LIS:C:\virus.txt  <file>
