NOD32 - How Get Rid of Email Virus?

Hello,

I'm just trialing NOD32 for Win98 and I like what I see so far.  I was
wondering what would happen if the POP3 scanner found a virus in an incoming
email.  Would it prevent your machine from taking the email off the server?
If so, what can you do with infected incoming email?

TIA

It simply notifies you that the email is infected, but it downloads from the
server normally.  Then, you can delete the email if you wish.  (As I recall,
it prevents infected attachments from being saved to other disk locations
however).

Try it for yourself; mail an attached EICAR(?) virus test file to your
own address.

How do I get rid of the nepomuk virus?
I'm sick to death of that bloody nepomuk server running, and re-installing itself! I tell it through settings NOT to run, and I even delete the binaries but the blasted thing keeps coming back!!! This is the same behaviour as computer viruses. I don't like it, I don't want it, I don't use it, so please give me my power of choice back! Interesting choice of name for the thing too, did you know that "Nepomuk" was Hitler's grandfather? Are the devs trying to send us a sublime message? That this is the beginning of a Linux dictatorship perhaps? ...

Getting Rid of Email Address Suffixes
Is there a simple way to eliminate the need for the last part of the email address when logging in or adding users to bugs, etc? Users are forced to use username@company.com for everything. It would save a lot of trouble to eliminate the @company.com suffix when using logins, Add CC, etc. All of our users have the same email suffix, so it is really annoying to our users and not necessary. I do use the suffix in the regexp field to automatically add users to groups, but the overhead saved there does not make up for the lost time typing out full email addresses. So losing this ...
