Automatic Repair/Delete?
« on: January 21, 2005, 08:23:25 PM »
Apologies if I'm overlooking the obvious as I'm fairly new to Avast.  I'm running the Home version on a 'server' machine that runs my mail server, lighting control, etc.  In most cases email messages are sent/received by the server with no issues, and Avast appears to scan them all without problems, adding mail headers as appropriate.

Lately I'm getting a large number of messages containing viruses (particularly Netsky) which for some reason cause Avast to put up a dialog on the server asking whether to delete the file.  This dialog unfortunately prevents the server continuing to download mail until I respond (and as the machine isn't monitored this isn't very often!) 

Is there some way to tell Avast to automatically delete without prompting?

Thanks,

Tom

Silent mode  :)

Tick silent mode in the internet mail provider and avast will delete all infected mails automatically.

Thanks guys!  ;D

Can someone explain the difference between 'yes' and 'no' on this dialog?

Cheers,

Tom

Yes allows the scan to continue, but leaves the file intact, no move to chest, no delete.

"Yes" keeps the virus in the message, "no" moves it to chest.

To define the virus actions in a more comfortable way, you may switch to the Professional version of avast!, of course.
