Not sure why or how but I found 'EmailShield.ini' at,
C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5\DATA\

Anyway, I inserted the 2 command lines and it works!

As the pic shows, some weird stuff happening with the location and date. The only clue I've got for the file dates being 2002 is the user having installed avast! while the machine had a BIOS error (it's a 2002 m/board).

Well it is partly down to the fact that this doesn't appear to have been a clean install but continual program updates (?) retaining the old folder names, company name (Alwil not Avast Software), location and registry entries.

Happy you've find the file and so the solutions  ;)

It would be interesting to know from anyone of avast team if they are going to remove from the code program the support to these voice, or they what to leave it....

Indeed it would! And may add a supplementary question, "If the capability remains, why not leave the checkbox choices in the user interface?"

Re editing 'EmailShield.ini' files.
Of the 6 I've done so far, I've had to locate one in a strange location, then cut and paste another with lines from a working AIS 7.0.1426 installation file into an apparently incomplete 7.0.1466 version.
This is still less work than uninstalling avast! and installing (and configuring IMAP and SMTP SSL servers in) AVG. But I do sincerely hope it doesn't get any trickier in forthcoming avast! editions.
