Just recently I seem to get the attachment paper clip next to about 75% of my received emails....
but they don't have an attachment.

I use AVG but have for a long time so that hasn't changed.
database is up to date and scans are clear....

maybe I need to return to the T'bird fold ?

The attachment you are seeing is the certification message added by avg email scanner saying that the incoming mail item has been scanned and found to be virus free.

Ah thanks Peter,
So am I stuck with that ?
Had a couple of people delete my mails as they thought it was a virus :)

cheers

But you are not compelled to have the message, so why not just disable it?

In the AVG Control Center, Email Scanner - Properties - Plugins - Configure - uncheck "Certify..."
