I have a virus scan running and it's found a virus in my Thunderbird inbox file. Of course, I don't want to delete the inbox file, and the anti-virus (AVG) can't seem to pull it out. There are lots of messages my mailbox and I don't want to try to look at each attachment and figure out if it has the virus.
How do get rid of the offending bits?
Edit: Folks, this is not Thunderbird using AVG as a proxy and AVG detecting a virus in my mailbox on the server. What's happening is that I have my email program off, not running. AVG is doing a system scan. It finds a file with several copies of the same virus in it. That file is a Thunderbird inbox file. Obviously, I don't want to delete the file wholesale, because it's my inbox ( or one of its subfolders )! So apparently AVG can't pull it out. There are thousands of messages in my inbox ( I'm a packrat, what can I say, someday I'd like to go back and see what my friends and family were saying to me way back when ) so I can't just go in and "find it".
