    I use Seamonkey (Mozilla ) mail and browser - SeaMonkey 1.0.4., on a Win
    XPP machine

    The Help about says "..Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US;
    rv: Gecko/20060729 SeaMonkey/1.0.4..."

    When I run a manual disk scan I often see my Symantec (Version say that an entire inbox or a file withing a mail folder is
    infected and quarantine the entire Inbox /or that entire file with 100s
    if not 1000s of mail

    I understand that some virus must be comming in thru pop mail, but do
    NOT know how to attack the specific mail / sender /or/ specific attachments

    I have ENABLED Internet E Mail auto Protect in symantec. Under this tab,
    I have chosen "..scan files withing compressed files.." - 3 levels deep.

    How do I clean a virus within an inbox or just clean only that infected
    attachment or LOCATE AND delete just that attachment ? Deleting or
    quarantining the entire Inbox is NOT solving my problem. I just loose my
    entire history.

    I'm looking for a solution that will clean or delete ONLY specific mail
    or attachments.

    any pointers, URL, advise would be most appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    The only way I can think of is to, in TB, look at each e-mail
    message that has an attachment and delete it if it looks
    suspicious or useless.

    Compact your folders afterward.
