Rivertower Incorporates Virus Scanning into our Email Servers.
Rivertower's email servers now scanning all incoming email for all known Viruses. We are using the "AmaVis" unix based software packing for email interception and scanning. All industry standard compression types (e.g. Zip, GZip, Tar) are recognised and any file attachments, as well as the emails themselves, are scanned for viruses. (note that this is not a reason to not have a Virus scanning package installed yourself!).
