  1. I am currently trialing NOD32 and first impressions are good.

    The trial I have is made up of three modules AMON, IMON and NOD32. As I understand it, AMON monitors all active and executing programs, IMON monitirs internet and e-mail and NOD32 is the on-demand scanning function.

    I have read in the help file that there is an EMON module (Email Scanner).

    Q1 - What's the difference between IMON and EMON and which do I need using freeserve as a POP3 mail provider?
    Q2 - Does the full version have EMON (if I need it).

    Many thanks.

    driftalong,

    Unless you are using for example Outlook in corporate mode, you should focus on the IMON. Web based email clients are not supported FYI. Just configure the IMON ;)

    In brief, IMON takes care of scanning email incoming through POP3, MON is installed automatically in case you use a MAPI-compatible mail client (e.g MS Outlook 97/2000)

    Hello

    I have aquestion about this topic:

    Is it Outlook (2000/XP/2003) the only clients supported by Emon?
    I use Mozilla Thunderbird, Outlook Express and Incredimail in my computer, am I protected also with these clients? I understand that if I use a POP3 account I am protected by Imon, doesn't matter which email client I use right? But what advantages do I have with Emon that I don't have with Imon? I own Office 2003 and XP so i have the possibility to install Outlook if it gives some protection advantage over the other clients named.

    Thank you very much.

    There is no advantage. If you get your mail via POP3 from your ISP/host, then IMON is the way to go. IMON will automagically scan the POP3 traffic, regardless of which client you use, and without the need to change any settings.

    Regards,

    Doesn't EMON scan your outgoing (SMTP) mail, while IMON scan the incoming POP3 stuff. I'm using Netscape 7's mail, and while it claims to be MAPI compliant, NOD installed without configuring the EMON module.

    Outgoing mail is not scanned, although adding that feature has been discussed. Only incoming mail is scanned.

    Emon will only be installed and configured if NOD detects OUTLOOK on the computer being used as the default email client
    it only works with OUTLOOK

    Not outlook express. Not netscape mail, not Opera mail or any other mail client.

    It only works with outlook
