As you know Gmail scans attachment for viruses (when using native web interface). I was wondering if Gmail is doing the same thing when used by email client such as Thunderbird ?
If not is there possibility to turn it on? or I need to enforce local antivirus protection such as Avast ?
I was googling this stuff nearly hour, but couldn't find any answer so thought someone here could help me. I'm a full time Linux/Mac user and I dealing with a Windows machine here, it's just been a long time since and I'm bit out of date :)
