Gmail has lunched it Virus Scanning for their gmail account users. Now you can open your emails and attachments without worrying if there is a virus or not. Gmail will automatically scans them for viruses. If a virus found, it will automatically clean the file and you can open it as usuall. But if Gmail can’t remove the file, you can’t open or download the attachment.
And if you send an email which contains a virus, Gmail will block it until you remove the attachment from the email. Cool heh? Well…thats another improvement from Gmail.
