    In accordance with my POP3 settings (using Outlook Express), a tag is appended to all incoming emails (port 110). Until today this task was faithfully accomplished. However, today I received some mails all from the same sender with pdf's attached, and the tag was not appended.
    Maybe they were from a 'secure' server as the contents are 'private and confidential'. Is there any way to find out why the tag was not appended - perhaps from the message internet header details ? The top toolbar, 'File','Edit', 'View' etc. was not displayed in Acrobat Reader with these pdf's.
    Am also using Frontgate which I use to check mails on the server before downloading them.
    My 10th day of using NOD32 - please accept my apologies if this turns out to be some oversight on my part.

    Thanking you.

    Are you drawing any email in through a secure server as in gmail?

    Cheers :D

    No Blackspear. I do not use gmail, but come to think of it, when I hover my mouse over File: in IMON staus window it shows 'http://www.google'..... something/logo.gif or similar. ( Can't remember exactly as IMON has moved on to more pressing business ...he..he..he)
    I have seen previous threads about gmail and now wonder if those mails originated from a gmail server. ??

    Hi ! The fact where the mail originates form has nothing to do with IMON . In case you use encrupted connection to get the main IMON will not be able to scan the file/traffic because it will be encrupted , IMON just can't recognise/read it in the Winsock .

    Hello again ! No I don't use encrypted connection for mail. Any idea why
    the mails were not tagged ? All the other mails received are tagged.
    Probably nothing to get excited about - I am just curious. :rolleyes:

    It could be that malformed MIME attachments are hiding the NOD32 tag. Try viewing the message source (right-click message --> Properties --> Details --> Message Source...) to see if you can find the NOD32 tag buried somewhere in there.

    If this is indeed the problem, then it is a matter of the way the original message was formatted and sent. The tag was added, but because of the way Outlook Express decodes the message, it is not visible.

    Or, it could be that it's a "malformed" HTML message without all the tags (like the ones sent by hotmail's web interface), because when IMON couldn't find the tags in a HTML-fomatted mail, it just didn't append it (there was no </body> or </html> tag, I don't remember that wall).

    So I would agree with alglove, it's maybe a matter of how the original message was formatted.

    Thank you for your responses. Will look into this when I next receive mails from that source. I have deleted the mails mentioned as they are private/confidential, but I did check the message source and found nothing untoward - probably because I didn't specifically look for NOD32 tag buried in the message source.
