Title: Connection Time Out?
Post by: sancee on May 13, 2004, 10:33:16 PM
I have Outlook Express and Avast Home.  Incoming and outgoing emails are scanned.  However, a couple of times a day I get the following message:

Avast! Connection Time Out
Internet connection time out elasped.
Continue Waiting?
{Server:'pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com' Port 110]

Any ideas why this happens? And is there some setting I need to do?  Thanks!

You probably need to increase your "Timeout for internet connection". Bij default it's set to 120 seconds. Try increasing it to 180 seconds.

Menu: On-Access Protection Control | Internet Mail | Customize | Advanced.
