Thank you very much. I was a little fuzzy about how the mcAfee product with its data base got there or what it looked like, etc. It is probably not worth the extra load to have antivirus-milter on there although I see now that had mcAfee been there, it would have probably done its job. I am the only major inbound Email account on that system, but it is a rather busy workhorse for our group and is already busy enough that one notices slowdowns at times and, when we check, it is all legitimate. In this business, paranoia is a virtue. Again, thanks for your help.
