[Idea 2568] Ability to remove AntiVirus signature

It would be nice to be able to prevent +net's AV system appending the signature to the end of each email scanned.

That's it. Simple idea.

[Idea 2568] Ability to remove AntiVirus signature

Is the signature appended to every email sent, or only to incoming mail?

it appends outgoing mail all of the time and incoming mail some of the time. I have messages from people that have been scanned and messages that have not - weird.

It only scans incoming mail and not outgoing, so only appends the signature on incoming email.

[Idea 2568] Ability to remove AntiVirus signature

fine. i'll turn off antivirus scanning. don't complain if your network ever gets crippled by email viruses.

may i ask why such a simple idea was rejected? i don't think it's fair that plusnet can edit my outgoing emails.

Sorry Michael, I should have added a bit more explanation.

The Antivirus scanning only adds a signature to incoming mail, it doesn't touch any outgoing mail. So any mail you send to people won't have the signature attached, only you see the signature when you get the reply.

Part of the reason of the rejection is that it doesn't fit in with our current business model.
