I guess that will only pick up known (virus signature database added) files rather than any zero day (unknown threats) - Better than nothing though.

The addition of real-time anti-exploit protection (in addition to anti-virus and anti-malware) might provide an additional layer.
I cannot speak for HitmanPro Alert, but MBAE Premium (Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Premium) can be configured to shield email clients (and essentially any internet-facing/vulnerable application).

Another layer can be provided by programs such as Mailwasher from Firetrust. I get precious little spam these days, but it does permit the user to "preview", filter and delete messages while they are still on the server, before they are ever downloaded onto the the local computer. The spam-filtering technology is quite robust (and better than that provided by most AVs). (Other features include spam reporting, as well as quick-forward, quick-reply and the ability to view messages from multiple ISP/webmail/Exchange accounts in one unified dashboard.) Free & paid versions available.

Thanks to both you and Callender, I'll look into Mailwasher.

I've been using the pay-for, now the forever upgrade license, for some time now. The biggest advantage for me lifetime version upgrade [ I believe lifetime means either until eM Client company expires or I expire, whichever come first? , and I can easily create as many accounts as I want. At one time, I was watching around 10 small-church different accounts, copying or moving some emails from one account to another account. Now, I'm down to just my two accounts.

Can you add 2 more PCs using the same account but priced for a single computer? How does that work?
