Hi. I'm trying to email EICAR with Gmail, but Gmail's virus protection will not allow it. Is there a way to bypass and still send an effective EICAR test to my recipient's email? I know that there are sites that email EICAR, but I want to use my Gmail if possible. Thanks -Nate

Store it in a ZIP file with a password.

Thank you very much.

I'm going to try two things.

1. Telnet https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB55194
2. Attaching the EICAR with a password zip.

Thank you
