    Both Norton and McAfee, or whatever they're called now (last I checked
    it was Symantec and Network Associates, or something like that), have
    products that can scan your incoming and outgoing email. Both products
    are available at your local computer superstore, or if there's not one
    around, go to any large office supply chain - they probably will carry
    it. (Note that while I mention just 2 antivirus programs, there are
    several others which are equally good or better, but I don't know
    about email-scanning capabilities)

    Some links:
    Free online A/V scan: http://housecall.antivirus.com
    [it's safe to answer "Yes" to downloads at this site]

    A/V companies:
    McAfee: http://www.mcafee.com
    Symantec: http://www.symantec.com
    Trend Micro: http://www.antivirus.com
    AVG: http://www.grisoft.com
    Panda: http://www.pandasoftware.com
    Computer Associates: http://antivirus.cai.com

    Google search for "antivirus":
