Scanning Email

Go to solution Solved by Barkupatree2002,

I received what to my eye is a suspicious email.  It is in a list of emails in my inbox.  My email client is Windows LIve Mail 2011 version 15.4.3555.0308.


I tried to scan the email by right clicking on the email, selecting '"ESET Smart Security" from the drop-down menu, and then selecting "Rescan messages" from another drop-down menu.  I selected "all messages in the current folder" and "rescan already scanned messages."


Subsequently there was no indication that a scan was occurring.  Additionally I could not find any indication in the log files under "events" or "computer scan" that indicated that a scan of my emails had occurred.


How do I know if scan of my email actually happened?


I am using ESET Smart Security version 8.0.304.0.

The number of scanned emails should increase in the protection statistics.

I tried your suggestion.  Indeed the number of scanned emails indicated by the protection statistics increased after scanning my suspicious email.  This is a simple and effective way to confirm that the email has been scanned.


Thanks very much.
