Expired mail certificate
« on: March 06, 2013, 10:24:22 AM »
After updating to Avast 8 I cannot get email when email scanner is enabled. Problem is that certificate of my email provider expired. Avast shows dialog to add exception, but button "Confirm exception" is diabled. I have to disable email scanning at all. Is it possible to ignore expired certificate?

Sincerely yours,
Viatcheslav V. Vassiliev

We have , we believ e, the same problem. We get invalid certificates when trying to down load or send mail using Thunderbird, XP Home, latest version of Avast. This problem is intermittent

Check out this:
- SSL ACCOUNTS - Avast8 can now handle the SSL emails without having to modify your email settings in your email program.

If you previously had avast 7 you will have needed to change your email program, account settings to allow avast to scan SSL email, these changes need to be reversed, e.g set back to the SSL ports and Authentication.

Delete the entries for your email accounts in the avast Mail Shield > Settings > SSL Scanning.

- SSL error unable to get local issuer certificate -
check if you have the avast certificate in Thunderbird, see

If you accepted some certificates after being alerted by Thunderbird, go to the Servers tab in their Certificate Manager and delete those below the 'avast! Mail Scanner Root'.
