Double scanning...?
« on: March 09, 2004, 08:39:11 PM »
Avasti + Pocomail + K9:  Win2k.

I have Avast scanning email and displaying it's progress in the real time popup window that it uses.

I am curious because when I watch the emails being scanned i often see emails appear twice in a row 9though not ALWAYS so)... and though it appears that have been duplicated in my in box, I find that this is not the case... that there is only one.

Why would they be listed twice ?

You'll se mail icon once in a while that checks for virus-spam (heuristic i guess) and another one when mail really comes into your INBOX.

I have exactly tha same thing happenning with TheBat clietn since I use its own Bayesit spam filter. I used K9 mbefore and I have not noticed. doubling
The strange thing is that not all e-mails are doubled. Does anyone hav an explanation?

Looks like no one knows.... I am concerned that using Pocomail with K9 might be triggering a double scan.... at both stages of email collection... by both application.   is this possible ?

it is in the detailed listing that the duplication occurs.
