If this option is enabled, a dialog window appears when a virus or unwanted program is detected in an email or attachment in which you can choose what is to be done with the email or attachment concerned. This option is enabled as the default setting.

Show progress bar

If this option is enabled, the MailGuard shows a progress bar during downloading of emails. This option can only be enabled if the option Interactive has been selected.
