Since I don't get the digest and rarely see the viruses. . . . .
unless your ISP filters; remember you should implement security in layers, possibly consider it the first line of defense [each should have protection as well.] these virii will get through. (my ISP does [they are using brightstor; -not a testimonial-; based on the few ripped-apart messages that do get through] it can be really tough to get some example code through sometimes_not_ And I have told the only prefs available to me & through help desk not to scan my mail ; but it does... dang corporate policy for major Canadian telephone company;.... Imagine now; they still want me to pay an additional $5.00 /month to get me a desktop client, but I don't get the viruses because they already filter ;-p )

Likewise I know I cannot trust this account for receiving any files because they are intercepted
each and everyone  ; some still get through ;  user [admin or not] beware
