Virus prevention on Outlook 98 & 2000

What configurations can be done within Outlook 98 & 2000 to help prevent viruses that manage to bypass anti-virus software on Exchange Servers from executing on the client desktops.

Many Thanks............

You could set up a rule inside Outlook to send everything with the suspect text (e.g. ILOVE You, .vbs) to the deleted items folder. Tedious to do for a large group of users and very inexact, but it is a backup. Both Symantec and McAfee claim to be up to date on their AV definitions, and they both have the capability to auto-update for both server and desktop.

Filtering by subject is not an effective strategy, since a new variant may emerge at any time.

For maximum protection, Outlook users need to install various updates and patches and change the security settings in Outlook. You may also want to consider changing the file type association settings for script files. Detailed instructions are at http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/antivirus.htm.
