Avast Internet Security
« on: February 20, 2013, 01:35:33 AM »
Mail Scanner appears not to be working in my new downloaded copy of Internet Security. 
 Mailscanner shows ON.  SSL ports 995/465 OK but I can see no evidence of any activity (0/0
 Other scans and updates all ok.
Using Windows 7 Home edition/Maxthon browser/all email accounts are gmail.
Am I missing adding some detail ?  do I need to enter specific email account information?
Apologies for such basic enquiry.

Are you logging into Gmail via your browser or an email client such as Thunderbird or Windows Live Mail?

If via your browser then Web Shield, File System Shield, Network Shield & Script Shield will handle this. Mail Shield only handles emails when downloaded via a client.

Hmmm never used Barca, but as far as I know Barca does not offer integrated support for secure messaging so that may be the problem. At a guess the clients you are using may not be supported yet.

I want to know which setting is slowing my internet speed?

1. File System Sield
2. Mail Shield
3. Web Shield
4. P2P Shield
5. Script Shield

I have changed every setting to high sensitivity and after that my internet becomes slow.. and now my system performace is also slow.

Specially tell me whether P2P, Mail, Web Shield, FSS, And Browser Sandbox.. affect my internet speed?

You have already given the reason for your systems slowness, the best settings for avast are the default settings as they are balanced for speed and protection.

You can restore defaults via settings/troubleshooting
