no email option appears in Norton Anti-Virus - want to turn off scan outgoing email
Posted on 2007-04-01
I was setting up MS Outlook and I noticed that Norton Anti-Virus (I have Norton Systemworks 2005) was scanning outgoing email. I wanted to turn the outgoing email scan off. (I have been using web mail with a different internet service provider and a long time ago turned off scanning outgoing email.) When I opened Norton Systemworks and then Norton AntiVirus, there was no Email option on the left for me to be able to click to be able to change an email scan setting. I also couldn't turn off scan incoming email (I didn't want to turn that off, but just wanted to find the switch, where I could if that was something I wanted to do) and there was not listing or button to click to be able to do that or control scan options. I can't figure out what happened. In light of this, how do I turn off scan out-going email messages for use with MS Outlook 2003?
Adding later - I was wondering whether the fact that I wasn't on the Administrator account might have something to do with it. It's my home computer so I'm the Administrator so I went to that account and DID find the Email option with respect to scanning and it was already set to be what I wanted, with NO scanning of outgoing email message but with scanning of incoming email messages. So why is MS Outlook causing Norton Anti-Virus to scan my outgoing email messages? I turned off Norton Anti-Spam, thinking that might have something to do with it, but it didn't.
