    I am in the process of creating a web-based mail-checking system with PHP. This script is stored on my (Windows XP + Apache2 + PHP4) localhost computer. Now, when I run the script and it reads mail, NAV kicks in and scans the message. Normally I wouldn't mind, but this is webbased, I can't get any viruses through this, right? How can I prevent NAV (2003) from kicking in when I am receiving mail with my script. If you want to view the script, please ask.

    you most certainly CAN get a virus through a web based email system.

    Oh, even with my not-so-advanced system? All it does is read text, so a virus (binary) would output rubbish.

    I don't know how it responds to a attached (text)file, I might as well test it.

    Of course unchecking "scan incoming emails" in NAV Options would stop scanning all incoming email scans!

    That was my idea too. I know that jetMailMonitor is able to read mail without NAV interferring. I was wondering if it can be done with PHP too.
