I would like to check the emails and images that pass through my computer before they are sent to be sure they are not transporting a virus harmful to MS machines.

A couple of distributions back, I installed 'clamAV'. It did its job very well. It found an 'iFrame' threat on one of the emails and quarantined my entire Inbox.

Did I do a bad configuration or is that still going to be a hazard I have to live with. It was rather messy cleaning up after that one and I lost a lot of information I was saving.

Thought someone could give me from experience a 'Yes' or 'No' answer before I start digging into it.

Thanks for the help.
