Hello jay.cie.18 and welcome to the community.

You can do a full scan on your computer to scan every file that you have on your computer before sending out the email. You can do this by clicking on this link. It has a step wherein you can see how to perform a manual scan to scan individual folders.

Running a scan using your Trend Micro Security software

I hope this helps with your question.

Thank you and have a great week!
