Several months ago I tried several antivirus programs to see if they would put a message on my emails. They wouldn't. Seems like they are looking for Microsoft type email. Mine is not. I use Postbox.
what did you try?

Pondus, it's been a while and I am an elderly gent pushing 80 years. I did try some of the free ones and Eset (do I have that right?).

Sorry, I can't be more helpful.

Interesting.

Oh well, I didn't modify it. I would never mess with my favorite antivirus program and wouldn't know how to do it anyway.

Thanks for your efforts, David.

You're welcome.

You wouldn't actually have to modify the EmailShield.ini file, as that is where changes to the default settings in the Mail Shield are stored. Since the default is not to display it if you made a change to display it in the GUI, then that may have been recorded in the EmailShield.ini file.

Hint, guess why I gave you the location of the EmailShield.ini file, so you could check it using notepad (just don't modify anything.

I would not even try. I get myself into enough problems without looking for more.

It's way past your bedtime, isn't it?

I tend to be a bit of a night owl, not unusual for me to still be up at 3am, only 1am now, still early ;D

A bit?

I do quite often stay up until midnight to check my favorite web site  http://www.newegg.com/

Problem is I don't need anything and after building my latest computer, I don't have any money.

Oh yes, the site updates at midnight.

Now I'm running the beta and the message is still there.

Thank you. :)

I love the message but I guess I am in the minority.
