AntiVirus Scan of E-Mail Attachment

Hi!

When I'm in Windows [98SE] Explorer, right-clicking a file lists the option "Scan with Norton AntiVirus [2000]".  It would be nice to be able to right-click an attachment in my email program [Outlook 2000] and choose "Scan with Norton AntiVirus", but that choice is not on the right-click menu.  How do I put it there?  

Thanks in advance,

Bill Bradnan.

try to reinstall norton antivirus and select automatic email protection


or

run nvlaunch
select options
select email protection
check the box for enable email protection

this will check all attachments for viruses

Hope this helps.

My "automatic virus-scan" of email is now set, thanks.  

But I'd still like to know how to put it on the "right-click" menu when you right-click an attachment.  When I right-click on an attachment now, I get the menu:
    Open
    Print
    Save As
    Quick View
    Copy
    Remove
    View> Small Icons
          Large Icons
          List
How do I add "Scan with Norton AV"?

Thanks again, Bill.

That is, how do I configure this to manually scan attachments?  I don't always trust "automatic".  Bill.

If you figure it out, let me know........... From what I gather, Symantec only scans the file when you try to open it (unlike McAfee which stops it at the gate).

The right click option may not be there because the Attachment is seen differently by Symantec (and I think I read ...... maybe in the readme file with the software....... that they will change that in the next fix/patch)

Try right-clicking on the entire folder containing attachments

The Web site was helpful, but I'd still like to know how to put "Scan with NAV" on the right-click-attachment menu in Outlook 2000.
