    Let's not forget that Ric runs a thin client environment so that's why he might be so emphatic on the no on-access on servers rule.

    Hi.
    The pupils are not allowed email so that's not a problem. no email server.
    And for the teachers I set up outlook express on the office computer but they will insist on using the web browser access to there emails in the class after school . Is that a security risk ?.

    What does tOutlook Express on staff PCs connect to?
    Are you using email accounts hosted by your ISP?

    Re: Do I Need Anti-Virus Software On A Server..?...

    Hello .
    No staff personal PC's, just the staff and some parents use the office one for admin and email etc. Very small school with 30 PC's and run by the parents with three teachers.

    Its Hotmail for the school email, unfortunately one of the teachers set it up just after the school went on the internet instead of letting me set one up with our ISP. !.

    And what the teachers personal email accounts are I have no idea.

    With having av and firewalls on each workstation I hope if they did open a bad email it will contain it to the one PC.?.

    Or would it be a good idea to ask/tell them to only use the office PC for emails ?

    Regards Michael.

    @ITWombat: The terminal servers have on-access scanning... I tend to treat those like workstations

    There's not too much security risk with your email situation there tickmike. If the kids start using email, you will need to use a system where by you can monitor the traffic (big brother style) for child protection and all that malarky. It also looks better if your letterhead doesn't have a hotmail address on it
