How does Genesys Cloud handle email flagged as containing a virus?
Genesys Cloud processes inbound email through AWS Simple Email Service (SES), which scans messages for malware (viruses and spam). If SES detects a virus in an email, or if the virus scan is incomplete or inconclusive, Genesys Cloud immediately disconnects the email and does not send it to a queue. However, no antivirus solution is 100% effective so Genesys recommends that you install antimalware software on every Genesys Cloud endpoint.
