Panda and email (also the "microsoft email")

    I am getting the "microsoft Update" virus via email up to 15 emails a day, I
    just delete them all but it is clogging my mail box. I have email rules to
    auto delete them but the "from" and "subject" names always change so I still
    get alot through.

    The problem I have with panda is that if the email protection is on it will
    not download the email virus to my computer but because this email is being
    blocked so are all the emails behind it. So the result is the email pop
    server timing out all the time. To get email i have to turn email protection
    off.

    Am I doing something wrong with the settings? I have the full version of
    panda platnuim 7.0.

    Any advice will be welcome

  2. First, start munging your email address, when posting to usenet. Swen
    harvests email address from recently posted messages.

    If your isp doesn't have an option to scan for, and delete viruses, in
    you inbox, you need a program that can id, and delete the messages,
    from the server, without downloading the full message. I'm using
    Magic Mail Monitor. See http://home.fiam.net/mikejenn/MMM3.html

    You should setup panda to either delete or quarantine incoming mail that's
    infected instead of prompt for action.

    prompting is all panda does (then auto deletes, but you have to click
    OK for it to go to the next message)

    "prompting is all panda does (then auto deletes, but you have to click

    Open Panda Platinum 7 and go to "configure permanent protection". Then
    click to "configure permanent mail protection".
    Click on the tab labeled "Warnings" and inside there "un-check" the box
    which says "show local warning".
    That should get rid of the prompt and the Panda will just do it's worked
    without asking your permission.
    I have been enjoying this program. It seems very impressive.
