Mail Anti-Virus plug-in intergration into The Bat!

If you are using The Bat! e-mail client application, then actions performed on infected objects are determined by The Bat!. The Mail Anti-Virus options are only for attached archives.

Incoming email messages are first scanned by Mail Anti-Virus and only after that – by the The Bat! mail client plug-in. That's why, if you select the Disinfect (Delete) action in the notification window of Mail Anti-Virus, actions aimed at eliminating the threat will be performed by Mail Anti-Virus. If you select the Skip action in the notification window, the object will be disinfected by The Bat! plug-in.

When sending email messages, the scan is first performed by The Bat! plug-in, then by Mail Anti-Virus.
