GMail to Introduce Virus Scanning


By hagrin - Posted on 05 August 2006

ZDNet's Google Blog reports that GMail will be introducing virus scanning very soon. Currently, GMail only blocks .exe files from being read. This feature will put GMail on par with Yahoo! and Hotmail security wise and still have the labeling functionality which sets it apart. GMail, with its additional storage space, is quickly becoming the best free web based email system around.
