Gmail Virus Scanning

Google Gmail webmail now has virus scanning. You basically get an automatic check-up every time you open or send a message with an attachment.

Whever you open a message with an attachment in Google Gmail webmail, the Google system will automatically run a virus scan to ensure your machine will not be infected with a virus.

If a virus is found in an attachment you’ve received, the Gmail system will attempt to remove it, or clean the file, so you can still access the information it contains. If the virus can’t be removed from the file, you won’t be able to download it.

If a virus is found in an attachment you’re trying to send, you won’t be able to send the message until you remove the attachment.

Another great feature addon from Google.
