Correction... You WROTE MailSecurity... :-P

I have never used MailSecurity myself, so I can't judge.  We use McAfee
Groupshield.  It's literally a fire-and-forget virus scanner.  Autoupdates,
never fails (touch wood), viruses are blocked as they come in/go out plus a
scan is done on all mailboxes nightly.

We never had a single virus infection (again.. *Knock* *knock*) in 2 years.

We use MailSecurity from GFI.  It is good, it got 3 different virus scan
engines as well, not just 1 like all others.

What's the best way for me to protect my E2K mail server from potential
virus' that may come from outside email? Lets say I run E2K at home and I
allow incoming mail from the internet for a couple of my accounts and users.
My network uses Norton 2000, but I don't have the email client of it. Anyone
know of an "inexpensive" way of doing this? Any response is appreciated.

I'm just a poor poor out of work admin trying to maintain his skills...:->
