Every email sent or received through ICO's mail server is scanned for over
50,000 virus signatures. We update our virus signatures daily to ensure
that all emails are scanned with the most up-to-date virus signatures to ensure
protection against the newest & most recent virus outbreaks.
a virus is detected, the email is blocked and quarantined. The infected
message will NOT be delivered to you (incoming) or to your recipient (outgoing).
an email will be sent to the SENDER, RECIPIENT and the mail administrator
notifying them a virus was detected and blocked.
ICO's Virus Email Scanning Protection totally protect me from viruses?
No, new viruses and exploits are created daily and no virus protection system
can be 100% effective. ICO's Virus Email Scanning Protection
is designed & explicitly offered as an additional service measure to help
protect you from viruses spread via email. Since viruses are spread by
many different methods, it is not meant to replace the need for a virus scanning
software and to continually update your own virus definitions for your local
virus scanning software. ICO's email scanning service will provide you
with additional preventive measure to protect your computer & network.
