    Understanding Dartmouth's Email Virus Scanning


    Information Technology Services has installed virus detection software on the servers (mailhubs) that control email to and from off-campus addresses. This software automatically scans files attached to email messages for possible viruses: it does not scan the email message itself.

    If an attachment appears to contain a computer virus, that email will not be delivered and will be deleted. Neither the sender (usually a spam mail sender) nor the recipient of the message will be notified that the message has been deleted.
