The EASE service provides email lists with built-in virus protection. The integrated F-Secure Anti-Virus system scans every message and attachment posted to a mailing list for viruses. If a virus is detected, the message is automatically rejected. The F-Secure Anti-Virus system is engineered for fast, automatic virus database updates and uses multiple scanning engines, providing email lists with the best possible virus protection.
Today, virus protection is commonly viewed as a crucial component that no one can afford to go without. Why then have email lists gone without virus protection for so long? The possible spread of an email virus can be disastrous when sent to an email list or posted to a discussion group with hundreds, thousands or even millions of subscribers. Imagine the damage to your company reputation if you accidentally sent a virus to all your subscribers.
It is important to remember that even though your individual workstation may have virus protection, it doesn't necessarily mean that your incoming and outgoing mail is scanned. Unless the individual messages are scanned before being delivered to subscribers of your email lists, it is still possible to unintentionally contribute to the spread of viruses.
