Why did Avast change my ports?
« on: March 21, 2013, 08:07:22 PM »
The 8 update seems to have changed all my ports for SMTP. I turned off outbound scans a long time ago, so I don't know why it even looked at those settings. After the update was applied, a number of my smtp ports were changed.

It doesn't change the ports, previously in avast 7 'you' had to change the ports so that avast 7 could scan the SSL emails. This isn't required in avast 8, so if you changed the ports so that avast 7 could scan SSL email then you need to restore those ports in your email program.
