There is an option to "Scan files inside compressed files" for Internet Email AutoProtect, Microsoft Outlook AutoProtect, and Lotus Notes AutoProtect. If this option is enabled, when will a threat in a compressed file be scanned?
Email AutoProtect scans will catch and clean threats within compressed files when opening the attachment on received messages.
