The MailCOPA email client confronts the problem of potential virus threats in your email in a number of ways.
First, MailCOPA IS NOT susceptible to Outlook targeted viruses using the Outlook address book to spread infected email. Not now, not ever.
Second, the MailCOPA email client is capable of switching off HTML email so that so that dangerous scripting CANNOT be run within the email messages. There is a right-click option to view HTML emails simply and easily once your virus software has had an opportunity to check the contents.
The anti-virus measures incorporated in MailCOPA are not a substitute for taking sensible precautions with received files, using proper anti-virus software etc.
