No, they have a completely inappropriate level of paranoia - almost all
ports are blocked, unless they really could be used to infiltrate the local
network; they absolutely trust McAfee will keep machines free of viruses -
but if McAfee actually reports having caught and removed a virus, they'll
want to take your machine away to disinfect it; and they remove anything
that's attached to incoming mail whether it's executable or not...
