do you have any idea of adding optional virus scan selection for incoming and outgoing mails?. I am using a dedicated virus scan for my system and I want to scan mails downloaded by iScribe and also sending mails from iScribe. As per the manual you already have built-in scaner. Even though adding a optional scan will be of additional security.

What virus scanner are you using? Typically scanning would have to be configured on your rather than in the client. It would help if I knew your scanner than I could tell you how to do it.

yeah I am using avast but it does not recognizes iScribe but only scans for OE which is not default client.

Are you using avast free or pro. If it is a free virus scanner you are looking for may I suggest AVG 7. With AVG you can manually configure the email scanner. Also, panda is giving users one a one year license for free. Get it by filling out the survey here:

The problem lies with the virus-scanner and not with Scribe. I use Norton AV, which scans all email, whatever client is being used. Email comes in via port 127, as far as I know, so you should configure your virusscanner to scan port 127, like n8chavez points out.

Well Bardo is almost correct,

Is you are using POP3 as your tranfers protocol then it is sent via port 110
IMAP uses port 143
IMAP 3 uses 220

Set your scanner to use the appropriate port. When you have decided on a scanner and if you need help setting it up, let me know.
