    It scans every message sent to your Plusnet email addresses for viruses. Anything that looks suspicious will be 'quarantined' straight away.

    It means we'll stop anything that looks harmful getting to your inbox by holding on to it temporarily. We'll keep it just in case it's genuine, so we can send it on if you ask us to.

    Yes, we'll send you an email alert to let you know.

    Everyone with a Plusnet email account can use it. All you need to do to turn it on is go to Spam, under Manage My Mail and switch it on.

    We're always updating our free anti-virus detection to make sure it keeps you safe from the latest email threats. However, if you're looking for anti-virus protection that’s as good as what you can buy, take a look at Plusnet Protect powered by Norton™.

    As with any anti-virus scanner, it's impossible to guarantee that nothing will get through to you. So make sure you’re careful and check before clicking links or opening attachments, especially if you don't know the sender.

    Email isn't the only way to get a virus, so it's always a good idea to have anti-virus scanners and firewalls installed on your computer as well. Take a look at our tips for staying safe online.

    No, it doesn't matter what operating system you've got. Our servers will scan the email before it gets reaches your inbox or computer.

    All you need to do is reply to the email alert we sent within seven days of getting it.

    When we get your reply, we'll send the quarantined email along to your inbox. If it doesn't appear in your inbox, copy and paste our original alert into a completely new email and send it to unquarantine@quarantine.plus.com

    If you're still having problems, get in touch with us.

    No, if you've got Plusnet anti-virus switched on, we'll always send you an alert whenever we quarantine an email. You can switch off Plusnet anti-virus but we recommend you keep it on for your safety.
