Today I have made a clean installation of Avast 8 Free and now my mail client Mozilla Thunderbird can't check mail on my two Gmail accounts - "Server "pop.googlemail.com" responded:". At the same time I have no problems with my account on Mail.ru. When I had previous versions of Avast there were no such errors. What should I do?
May the FOSS be with you!

Sorry to all. I have just found the solution in Beta section. The thread is there: avast v8 RC 2 and Thunderbird

The solution is in that post: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=115925.msg900931#msg900931

Though I have solved my problem, I have one more question. Should I now restore SSL for my Mail.ru account as I did it for Gmail?

I think so.

Although there's no hint in the changelog (as always...), it seems like Avast  is now able to scan mails also when SSL security is enabled in the mail client.

From the thread you posted - check the second window:

I decided not to touch my Mail.ru account's settings for now. Let it be as it is now.

There are several recent threads on the forum, all related to the new Mail Shield. You may want to look for them using the "forum search".
