older versions of Avast
« on: August 02, 2012, 04:31:33 PM »
This new version of avast seems to did away with the email scan certification message, Which I do  like, So , can I install an older version of avast and still get my updates and be protected ?  Which version still has/uses  the Certified message in the email scanner..? And can I turn OFF the update to get a newer version ?

hey you can use the latest version of avast for that. ar you using programs like thunderbird for you email or is it outlock? if it is thunderbird you have to make a few chances in both avast and thunderbird so the can connect to each other.

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=76915.msg636942#msg636942 how to configure thunderbird and avast- might be hard to understand.

for outlock there have been a know problem between avast and outlock but should have been fixed in the latest version.

hope this will help you out.

Hi there, and Thank you for responding, I am using Thunderbird, But in this new version of Avast it did away with the Inbound message is clean and the Outbound message was cleaned.. I cannot find option in the new avast, So, can I switch back to an older version that has this option ?? And can I still get update on an older version ?

@mikaelrask you are missunderstanding...... this is not a SSL/TLS issue

this is about the "clean message" that avast insert in mails...... but is removed from last version

and not needed in my opinion...if avast did not stop it, well then you know avast think the mail is clean

I'm still using IS 7.0.1426 on this machine. Are the "insert message" options removed from 'Pro' and 'IS' 7.0.1456 or only 'Free'?

The message in clean outgoing messages is always inserted in all versions. In infected incoming messages you could mark the subject if you want as in older versions.

Not any more. I've just checked on AIS 7.0.1456. The options are missing (not surprisingly same as Free) and so are the messages inserted in clean outgoing emails.
