Bitdefender Internet Security 9

I have been using FSecure for the past year and all in all I am fairly
happy with it. But it does slow the computer down at certain times and
there are certain games it will not allow me to play online even when I
allow them in my set up. Anyway I thought I would try a few more
security suites before paying for another year and am starting with
Bitdefender. Well it does not seem to slow the computer up as much as
FSecure did and I can play all games online okay. I have also tested the
virus side of it and it seems fine. However I am not 100% sure it is
scanning my emails. In the virus tab I have scan outgoing and incoming
mails boxes ticked. However in the section beneath this, shield
statistics,  it says it has not scanned any emails even though I have
received about 30. I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my emails but also
tried Outlook with the same result. Has anyone got any ideas what the
problem could be. Thanks.

Thanks for your replies. It definately is not scanning them because I
sent myself an email with that test virus attatched and it did not pick
it up. When I did a manual scan of my mail folder it did pick it up. I
will email them to see if they have any ideas.

I recently upgraded from BitDefender v8 to v9 and mine is definately
scanning incoming and outgoing emails. When a new batch of emails is
received or sent, it pops up a little window in the bottom right corner of
the screen to say it is scanning them. I also use Thunderbird for email.

This evening I have received over 50 emails but the shield statistics
section only says '2 mails' for Total scanned emails.

Perhaps the count gets reset after an automatic update takes place?
