TBClamAV is an open source antivirus plugin for The Bat! email client that uses the open source too ClamAV as its scanning backend.
Main difference in TBClamAV as compared with other Antivirus plugins for The Bat! is that it loads the whole engine when first incomming message needs to be analyzed, and keeps it in memory untile The Bat! is closed. This means that scanning speed is quite fast.
Once that happens, TBClamAV scans a typical email message in less than a second. If we compare that with 5 seconds needed by TBClamWin that is also using ClamAV engine, or with the 9 seconds that AVP Manager needs using Avira Antivir ScanCL, this is an exceptional amount of time and computer resources saving.
Being TBClamAV totally integrated with The Bat!, means that you are protected, both when sending, and when receiving emails. If you try to send an email with malware content, it will be detected, and reported to you.
When a risky email is received, it will be automatically adviced to The Bat!, that will handle it properly on the Quarantine.
