Does Email Virus Scan delay delivery of email?
The scanning of email is done when the email is sent to our servers. It takes approximately 0.1 seconds to scan for viruses using our virus scanning technology.
We already have virus scanning. Why do we need Email Virus Scan?
Desktop software only protects your network from resident virus attacks and risks associated with floppy disks. A recent study by ISCA labs indicated that almost all viruses are transmitted through email or directly over the Internet. Virus protection at the desktop is important, but even with virus protection at other levels of the network; stored data and computer networks are still vulnerable to attack. In order to ensure that the data on these systems are virus-free, a multi-tier, multi-protocol defense system needs to be implemented. Our service completes the vital defense you will need to protect your systems from email-borne viruses.
Does Email Virus Scan work on Domain Forwarding, and Catch-all?
Email Virus Scan will scan all domain forwarding and catch-all email if it is forwarded to an email address that has virus scanning enabled.
Does Email Virus Scan slow my computer down like desktop virus scanning?
No, there is no scanning done by your desktop computer. Email scanning is done at the server level.
How often are the virus definitions checked and updated?
Virus definitions are updated on an hourly basis. Our relationship with our anti-virus supplier also allows us preferential updating. This means that we quickly receive updates, as they are made available.
How effective is Email Virus Scan in preventing virus attacks?

What will happen to my email if it is infected with a virus?
In some cases, the entire attachment will have to be removed, but you will still get the text portion of the email.
