VPOP3Protect 1.2

Protection Against Email Worms & Viruses

VPOP3PROTECT is a free utility which can be "plugged in" to VPOP3 to protect it against common email 'worms' and viruses.

VPOP3PROTECT is not a virus scanner, and should not be used to replace virus scanning on your network, but it can be used as a first line of defence against common viruses carried by email. The VPOP3PROTECT program checks the message subject and/or attachments for meaningful filenames and will send suspicious messages to a designated mailbox for manual checking.

Download VPOP3Protect free of charge.

The installation program will automatically insert VPOP3PROTECT into VPOP3 as an 'External Router' to scan all messages that VPOP3 downloads from ISP POP3 accounts.

Currently VPOP3PROTECT checks for the following viruses:
