I didn't want to mention this.. .. I have another 8 e-mail a/c's set up in Pegasus  8) <I do, but only joking, the one we are working on is the 'main' and most problematic>

Could you 'open' an e-mail for me, for instance, technical.terra.es@terra.es and let me make some tests? Oh!, send me the password too... You could delete the account later.

Forget about the timeouts, was just a suggestion not concerning with the POP3 trouble and, of couse, 600 seconds for POP3 could be a large number for 'small' emails without attachements.  ;)

Tech (and Techie),

Technical,
It's not as easy as that, you need passport/residencia numbers and such. I'll IM you another workaround.

Techie,
Copied to you, if it helps.

No, three users at the same time asked for help... Help me!
Ok, I could not send or receive mails with any configuration... You win, or better, Telefonica shot me! I lost  :P
Tomorrow I'll do more tests and keep you informed...

Definitevely, if anybody could say how to configure an account with "." character in the midlle of the user name (for instance, user.terra.es), we will have our troubles solved  8)

Tech,

Did you look at my isp link, do you agree that the username is supposed to be as I am saying??.

Remember, it IS working the way I have it (most of the time)!

W.

btw: what if any error message do you get trying that a/c??

I agree with you, you are correct... We must handle an user name with a dot in it (user.terra.es@terra.es)... If avast! do not handle it, we won't succeed  :'(

Walker,

I sent you an IM to try and keep the clutter down.

No matter how I read this, to me, it comes out this way:
Avast seems to have trouble reading the "." in the middle of the username.
I fell that "walker#pop3.terra.es" is correct.

Also, shouldn't the DefaultSMTPServer=Smtp.terra.es?

Also, this bit of confusion comes from Avast:
Since your e-mail program supports SMTP authentication and also makes it possible to set a different login name for SMTP than for POP:
If the SMTP authentication is enabled, append the character # and the address of your SMTP server to the login name (e.g. walker#smtp.terra.es).
If the SMTP authentication is disabled, enable it and use the character # together with the address of your SMTP server as the login name (e.g. #smtp.terra.es).

Boy, this is getting really confusing!  :P

Don't you have a normal domain name that you can manually configure in Avast and test?

Frankly, I am running out of ideas.  If the email fails, look at the Internet log you activated.  Yes, I agree it may slow the system down a bit, but nothing major.  If the log saves ALL activity throughout the mail process, then it will put on the brakes a little.  You would expect that from any subroutine that is pulling in more information.

Anyway, let me know what the log shows.  Maybe Technical's tests will give some insight.

Nite,
techie

Techie,

Got it, replied  ;)

I realise your logic, this is just the way my ISP is  :-\ . I wonder if the Avast team, have any comment on whether Avast will handle that format correctly  ???

I fell that "walker#pop3.terra.es" is correct.

I know, this just produces an login error from the ISP though.

Also, shouldn't the DefaultSMTPServer=Smtp.terra.es?

No, mailhost.terra.es is correct  ;)

Thanks Techie.

Walker.

Yes, this doesn't matter.

Ok, this is written on the help file like Ann.Jones#pop3.tiscali.com.
Ok, it's not logic but the second dot "." or who knows what else is not allowing to send or receive emails... We need a solution!  >:(
