How do I scan files attached to emails I have received with AT&T Mail (Web-based)?

Learn how to scan files attached to your AT&T Web-based emails.


ArticleOVERVIEW

Scanning an email attachment

When you receive an attachment in (Web-based) AT&T Mail that we can scan, you'll be given the opportunity to "Scan With Norton Antivirus" or "Download Without Scanning."

If you choose to scan a file, you'll see a scan results page that will let you know if a virus has been found. If a virus has been found and it can be cleaned, you'll be able to download the document without fear of infecting your computer. If it can't be cleaned, you'll be notified. In this case, we strongly recommend that you don't download the file.
If you choose to download without scanning, your document will be downloaded without any virus scanning at all.

This virus scanner may not be able to detect or repair all viruses and variants. Please be aware that there is a risk involved whenever downloading email attachments to your computer or sending email attachments to others. As provided in the Terms of Service, neither Yahoo! nor its licensors are responsible for any damages caused by your decision to do so.

We recommend that you never download files from an unknown source.
