    Since Outlook Express is the only program capable of modifying dbx files, please look up and delete the particular email in your OE manually.

    If Nod or any other AV program deleted the infected file, it would also delete the entire folder i.e. infected file found in "inbox" would delete your entire "inbox", it would rip apart the program, just how Microsoft designed Outlook Express... So when you get a warning that there is an infected email from XYZ, stored in your "inbox" then you need to go to your inbox and find the email from XYZ and delete that particular email, then empty you deleted items folder, and you are virus free again :D

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers :D

    Yes, just like NOD32 beta deleted my entire Sent Items folder (about 5000 messages) when I told it to delete ONE infected message! I had no way to backup on that computer so I lost all those messages I had been saving. My experience is the reason why NOD32 doesn't touch those files now. Much better that you have to do it yourself. :D (I also had NOD32 beta delete the entire trash folder in OE instead of just the one message with a virus).
    Now you probably understand why I still don't use IMON!

    IMON would not have deleated the foldero_O

    IMON would have just deleted the one infected message.

    That is one advantage for using IMON.
