    Re: curious

    Andrew,
    
    They are getting this 'paperclip' in the attachment field because the person 
    who is using AVG has set the configuration to
    "certify incoming" and also "certify outgoing" mail as having been checked 
    by AVG.
    
    To remove this 'paperclip' the user should click once on CONTROL CENTRE then 
    the EMAIL SCANNER box then the PROPERTIES button at the bottom then the 
    CONFIGURE button.  Under the heading EMAIL SCANNING you can either remove 
    the tick from both boxes which say CERTIFY MAIL or place a tick in the two 
    boxes which say WITH ATTACHMENTS ONLY.  That way only mail with attachments 
    will have the certification and hence the 'paperclip' symbol.
    Provided the tick is kept in the two boxes CHECK INCOMING MAIL and CHECK 
    OUTGOING MAIL then all email is still scanned for viruses and you will be 
    alerted if any are found.  I have used AVG Free for a number of years and it 
    has detected numerous emails trying to come in with virus attachments.  This 
    past few months there have been sometimes 4 or 5 on some days.  None have 
    got through into my system.  How do I know?  I regularly carry out an online 
    scan to double check.
