Hello Rick,

Thank you for your response. I made the following changes. I'll post the
results when the suspect mail is resent.

>Quarantine Infections = yes

Already set.

>Quarantine Silent Viruses = no

Also preset.

>Silent Viruses = HTML-IFrame All-Viruses

Changed this by removing All-Viruses & Zip-Password, but left all the HTML

Thank you,
