    Last week I posted about not getting confirmation on e-mails that they are certified virus-free when using AVG. Deke was good enough to reply, and he suggested being sure the boxes are checked in the AVG setup to check ingoing and outgoing emails. I have checked those boxes and still no confirmation. And in the setup box it even says Outlook e-mails are scanned. When you change the default to another program, like Thunderbird, wouldn't AVG recognize that and note it accordingly?

    I have previously used Outlook for my e-mail. On those e-mails there is always a note at the bottom stating they are certified virus-free by AVG.

    I like using Thunderbird but would sure like to be sure e-mail are scanned by AVG, which I also like. I tried to register at Mozilla's forum site, but it wouldn't take my registration.

    Any ideas on this one? Maybe e-mails are scanned, but it would be nice to know that.

    No, AVG only "certifies" email with "this email has been certified....." in outlook and....I think eudora.

    Thanks for the feedback. I assume AVG, in fact, does scan all e-mails - they just don't make a note of it in the body of the message. Right? I figure as long as I have all the e-mail boxes checked in the AVG Control Center I'm covered.

    Thanks again -
