Central House Technologies has announced that it will distribute software that scans email and attached documents for viruses. Mimesweeper is priced at $2,875 for 100 users.

Mimesweeper redirects incoming mail to a mailbox where it is scanned for unidentifiable attachments or viruses. Messages can pass through the network only if they are scanned, according to Central House officials.

Mimesweeper runs on Microsoft Windows NT 3.5 and will support Microsoft Mail and Novell's Groupwise software in the near future, officials said.
