Avast 8.0 and Thunderbird 17 with Gmail
« on: March 17, 2013, 02:14:47 PM »
Hi everybody,

I am using Gmail with IMAP.
I can not send and receive e-mails when I turn on in Avast 8 the "SSL Accounts check", it works fine when I turn it off. It worked in Avast 7 as well.
I had Thunderbird and Avast 8 reinstalled and my e-mail account reconfigured too. Result is negative.
How can I configure my Avast 8?

my system:
Win XP SP3
Avast free 8.0.1484
Comodo 6.0.264710.2708
Thunderbird 17.0.4

imap.gmail.com - SSL/TLS - 993
smtp.gmail.com - STARTTLS - 587

Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

Glad to hear things worked out for you. I use Thunderbird with 3 accounts: Windows Live, Gmail and Yahoo and no problems here at all. ;) 8)

I can only get it to work if I turn SSL checking off.

Furthermore I appear to have the correct certificates installed but get this message when I start Thunderbird

This is beating me at the moment - where can I download Avast 7?

Please enable debug logging in avast Settings/Maintenance, simulate the problem and then send me the log file C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\Mail.log by mail.

I have the same problem, but it only started a week ago.
POP3 works OK for incoming mail, but not outgoing mail.
IMAP doesn't work at all.
I've tried exporting, deleting and importing the Avast certificate etc.
That didn't work.
Disabling SSL didn't work either.
I've disabled scanning outgoing mail, so I can at least use my POP3 accounts as normal.

The only way that everything works fine is when I disable the Mail shield. But that's inconvenient, to say the least.

Windows 8 Pro 64-bit.
Latest Thunderbird, Avast 8.0.1483.
Latest Comodo firewall.

I've enabled debug logging. If you want the log I can send it to you.

Hello,

you can download the fixed Mail Shield here:
http://public.avast.com/~peterka/8.0.1483/ashMaiSv.dll

1) Disable the self-defense in avast! settings/Troubleshooting and stop the Mail Shield
2) Put the new ashMaiSv.dll to the program folder (C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast)
3) Enable the self-defense and start the Mail Shield

Alas the fixed dll didn't work.
Problems still the same.

Go back into Troubleshooting,  and select the option to reset factory defaults.  Then reboot when prompted.

That might--might--do it.

(I'm hoping).

It's all working now!!

This is what I did:

1 Restore to factory settings
2 Disabled the self-defense
3 Disabled the Mail shield
4 Copied the fixed Mail shield to the Avast program folder
5 Enabled the self-defense
6 Enabled the Mail shield
7 Followed the procedure to replace the Avast certificate in TB (explained elsewhere)
8 Enabled the SSL/TLS on the Gmail accounts in TB (I still had that disabled and that didn't work!)

I'm not quite sure if all the steps are really necessary, but this is how it worked for me.

Thanks for the quick replies!!
