    Does NOD32 version 2.5 have the ability to scan Eudora version 5.1 .mbx email files?
    It spent lots of time seemingly cycling on the in.mbx and out.mbx files, eventually showing the following (part000.htm):

    C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\In.mbx »MIME »part000.htm - JS/IEStart.L trojan - quarantined
    C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\In.mbx »MIME » - error occurred while reading archive
    C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\Out.mbx »MIME » - error occurred while reading archive

    Yes , NOD32 can scan them . You have malware in your inbox
    C:\Program Files\Qualcomm\Eudora\In.mbx »MIME »part000.htm - JS/IEStart.L trojan - quarantined


    Please , open your mail client , find the particular message and manually delete it . If you don't do it , don't worry because if it tries to do something bad , AMON will catch it (if it is active , of course) :thumb:

    I'm not aware of NOD32 scanning Eudora mailboxes. Maybe the first email is scanned, but not the rest to the format of the mailbox. However, IMON scans all incoming email and removes infected files before they reach the mailbox, and AMON scans all attachments that you open/access.

    I believe the simple answer is NO. NOD32 can scan incoming emails, but can't scan or find viruses in existing .mbx Eudora mailbox files. It sure would be nice if that feature were added. I'm still waiting and hopeful for someday...

    Here's the link to the previous thread regarding Eudora non-support by NOD32.
