Avast free blocking Outlook Express
« on: August 26, 2012, 07:45:32 AM »
Hi,
I tryed several versions of avast and they block my POP3 account with the mail shield. When i turn it off everything
works fine. The account is POP3 without SSL. My OS is W2k SP4. I was trying also differents configuration of the mail shield, like including the mail account in the SSL account section with no encryption. I haven't a firewall also and avast is the only security program on the system. Any help will be welcome. Regards.

Yes, i did and it doesn't work. I think there must be an issue with the avast free 4.8; it was installed and unistalled on the system. Please if anyone may tell me where to look for to fix it. Thanks in advance.
