Do third-party products based on the Microsoft Virus Scanning API (VS API) scan email at the gateway level?

A. No. Antivirus products that use VS API scan don't scan mail at the perimeter of your network. These products scan only the Information Store (IS). If you want to establish gateway-level scanning, you must invest in a gateway antivirus product.
