    I found this today and wondered if anyone had used it or if anyone knew of an English language alternative. This appears to be German only. It seems to work as expected, I just don't know how practical it is to install it for users that don't speak German.

    The basic functionality is that you can right click an email attachment in Outlook and it will upload it to Virustotal and scan the file.

    Any thoughts?

    I don't use outlook so I wouldn't know how it works, but can't you just download the attachment without opening it and drag and drop it to virustotal? Obviously that takes a click or two more, but it's not like your job is to scan attachments right? You probably get one here and there, idk

    Too dangerous. When the users download the attachment they would probably execute it and then this is all pointless.
