Good program for scanning inbound/outbound email

  FatboySlim71 09:26 22 Jun 2008

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good program for scanning inbound/outbound email.

I have Avira free anti virus, but I believe that this version does not provide email scanning?

So I was wondering if anyone can recommend a good program that would scan my inbound/outbound emails. I use Office Outlook 2007.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I use AVG8 Free, does scan emails.

AVG8 all the way.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I have used AVG 8, but found it to occasionally slow my system down a bit.

I have found with Avira that I don't get these occasional slow downs.

I don't think it is just AVG that is slowing down your computer - if it was, then why does it not slow down mine also? I have never had any problems with any version of AVG which I have always used.

AVG8 also slows my computer down ,but it is an old computer and could do with more memory.I just disabled the automatic scan.The Link Scanner.And the Resident Shield and it works ok with those switched off.

Hi, yes my point exactly - a slow pc, not just AVG.

Sorry I should have been more clear, regarding the occasional slowdowns, it wasn't the computer that was getting slowed down it was when I was using the search engine, but on reading a bit about AVG I have just learned that it will be the link scanner that was causing this, as this checks all the links in the search results. Sorry again and I should have explained myself more clearly : )

You can turn the link scanner off in AVG8,

Thanks for that, I may use AVG 8 again (and take your advice) if I don't like Avira for some reason or other.

So can anyone recommend a good (standalone)program for scanning inbound/outbound email.
