Anti-Virus For Everyone
With the advent of the fastest spreading mass-mailer worm of all time, we decided to enable anti-virus on all c4.net accounts. We have always offered anti-virus as a free add-on to your mail account. However, many people did not take advantage of this, mostly, it would seem, because they didn't know about the service.
Blocking virus infected mail at the mail server level before computers get infected and before an endless stream of "delivery failed" messages get generated will free up mail server resources for legitimate mail. Well, it will give us more resources to fight spam, if nothing else.
If you really wanted your virus infected e-mails, you're out of luck -- unless of course you want to go to the Web mail system and wade through your spam to find them. But that would just be sick.
