Can Webroot protect my email accounts

Hello DarkFriar,
 
Welcome to the Webroot Community,
 
E-mails aren't scanned by Webroot, but as soon as you try to run a malicious attachment WSA would block the execution and protect your PC. Also if you would click on a link in an email the URL will be scanned against the cloud database.
You have to keep in mind that WSA works a bit different than other antivirus solutions; instead of scanning everything all the time and wasting hardware resources, Webroot tries to intelligently protect you PC against threats.
 
 Also have a look at this video to see what happens when WSA misses a virus.
 
 
Hope this helps
