Non-Virus Protection Procedures for protecting emails

Posted on 2002-05-03

Is there a way, in Notes, to protect the server from emails carrying virus attachments without using virus protection software?

Of course purchasing virus protection software is ultimately the right thing to do, which my client has done.  But, in the meantime, is there anything he can set up to protect his system?

There is no built in virus checker or task to perform that. YOu have to rely on third party !

There is a template which acts like virus remover, check it out at http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf/ecc552f1ab6e46e4852568a90055c4cd/bb716869fb2e0f66852568e0005e568f?OpenDocument&Highlight=0,virus

Also, the feature for virus check is something considered in RNext. Anyway you have to wait :-)

I would purchase a good third party virus scanner that works correctly in Notes.

NAV for Notes from Symantec is one of the better ones.

I think trendMicro has one also.

Please make sure that it knows how to scan NOTES mail , asn there are not very many progams that do a good job of it.

I hope this helps !
