How it works

The F-PROT Antivirus scanning engine scans all incoming e-mail in order to intercept virus infected messages and prevent them from infecting the system. The F-PROT Antivirus scanning engine also scans Microsoft Outlook outgoing e-mail. All messages go through the F-PROT Antivirus for Exchange scanner and only clean messages are forwarded to the intended recipient. If an infected message cannot be disinfected it is stored in the Quarantined Items folder. If the Quarantined Items are re-scanned after an update of the virus signature files, the F-PROT Antivirus scanning engine may be able to disinfect previously quarantined messages and then forward them to the recipient's inbox. Infected messages are isolated in the Quarantined Items folder, according to the system administrator's settings preferences.
