Title: email
Post by: Bobby on February 19, 2003, 08:02:55 PM
I just installed your home version and I'm not sure if i have it set up right for email. I specified aol.com as my smtp and same for pop. I sent myself an email and got no messages in the received email. Can you tell me if i have it installed right?

AOL offers Web-based mail and doesn't support POP access. That's why avast cannot scan it for viruses.

Bobby:
Avast cannot scan AOL mail during download. But you can rely on avast on-access scanner that it catches the virus when you run the infected program or open the infected document.

Please tell me your avast version (whole build number) and what Windows and service pack do you have.

To obtain exact version of operating system run command prompt and type ver command.

There are two versions of Windows 98 labeled as Windows 98 and Windows 98 SE (SE = Second Edition). Service Packs are available only for Windows NT,2k,XP
