Finally. GMAIL seems to be hitting an alpha version soon. Or, at least, they’ve launched virus scanning. A feature Hotmail has had for years, and a feature that Microsoft is adding to windows, called “Onecare”. Yahoo also has virusscan for their webmail.
This vitusscan opens op for users to receive and email .exe-files. A feature I personally have missed. Now I don’t have to rename, zip and rename special files to be sent via email.
Now, If you receive an infected email, you’ll still be able to read the mail, but in a “safe mode” manner. This way you’ll know who sent what to you, even though it was infected.
