    Up to Friday (9/19/03), I was using eSafe virus protector however my system got infected with the w32/Swen@MM virus. I got rid of it and purchased NOD32.

    Question: How can I tell if it's working and connected to my email? I appreciate your reply. Thank You,Sam

    Thank you for your reply. I do have another question: If the value of "Scanned" in IMON increases, does that mean incoming and out-going email is being checked for viruses?
    Thank You,
    Sam

    NOD32 does not scan outgoing email, only incoming.

    Thank you for your reply. I will rephrase my question: If the value showned under "Scanned" in IMON is increasing, does that mean my incoming mail is being checked for viruses? The reason I am asking is: when I first installed NOD32 yesterday, It gave me some message (I don't remember exactly what it said) that said my email was not a POP3. It is, and I also noticed that IMON was disabled. I did the setup on IMON and now it is enabled. I just want to make sure that my sytem is protected from viruses attached to incoming email.
    Thanks Again,
    Sam

    If the scan counter increases then it most definitely is. To make sure though, you can go to the IMON setup, and choose append notification to all e-mails.

    IMON/EMON Question from new user

    Sorry folks, but I'm confused. I recently installed NOD32. During the installation, I got an error message that said something about my email (I don't remember what it was). In a previous post, I was told that since my "scanned" count in IMON is increasing and each of my incoming messages have a "Nod32 Information" message, my incoming email is being checked.

    This is where the confusion comes in: while I was reading some of the documentation, it mentions EMON is the email checker. In the "Control Center", I don't have EMON. I have: AMON, IMON, and NOD32. My e-mail client is "Incredimail". Please help straighten out this confusion. Is my email covered?

    IMON is the "regular" email scanner, EMON monitors outlook mail (not OE). So you are well protected with IMON. EMON is only available when nod detects an outlook system on your install.
    But the docu is really a bit confusing about this...

    Thank you for clearing this subject up. Yes I did find the documentation confusion on this subject. After being hit last weekend with the SWEN virus, I'm nervous about my coverage. You helped clear it up.

    I don't have EMON even though I've got Outlook XP. Does it all depend on if you have a sexy keyboard or not? ;)

    I have a windows 2000 system with Outlook 2000. I dont'a have the mentioned EMON module showing. Hope this doesn't mean my emails are unprotected!!!!

    Hi c53204,

    Is "use MAPI interface" checked in Nod32??
    see screenshot:

    Yeah, it's checked.

    Btw, "append notification to emails" has a nice feature too. Doesn't work if it's an RTF e-mail.

    Yes, use MAPI is checked. However I have since re-installed NOD32 and noticed that the EMON module will only load if Outlook is installed in the 'corporate' mode

    Hmmm...that might be the reason...I have no outlook, so no EMON here :).

    So EMON isn't for home users, or what do you mean with 'corporate' mode?

    Outlook in 'corporate' mode allows POP3, MAPI and Microsoft Exchange mail systems to be used.

    The usual type of install for home users would be internet only email i.e. POP3.
