    i checked my mail and dl a couple of attachments today. i notice that my number of scanned messages is always zero. How do i scanned by not using gmail's or yahoo's antivirus but use nod32 instead? Thanks in advance.

    Yahoo, Hotmail and Gmail all have a virus scanner on their servers so your messages will be scanned by them anytime it hits your inbox.

    You said "it always show 0 files scanned". Where are you seeing this number in particular?

    The Virus scan and the Spam scan of your email are not the same.

    If you see that you inbox is getting full of messages that are "Spam" and they are not being marked by ESS, you might want to take a look at how you have it configured. The counter won't change from 0 until it actually finds a spam message come through.

    Spam scanners do take a bit to train as to what you consider spam.
