Problem: Outlook Express

  Bun 15:21 28 Jan 2003

Someone kindly gave the extensions for e.mail messages and I wrote them down and put them into a safe place. So safe I can't find them now!! I would just like to scan all my incoming e.mails with my AV before opening them. Can someone help again. Cheers

Not sure how you mean to do it, but most AV progs have an option within them to scan email as it arrives / before being sent.

In general, emails have the extension .eml - sorry I can't be more helpful.

Lú-tzé is right AV can be set to scan emails automatically....

The address book is .wab

Mail messages are .mbx

Messages index is .idx

Outlook Express uses *.dbx for storage and *.eml is a email that has been saved using File, Save As.
