I am on a dual-boot Win32/Linux system and I want to share my Thunderbird profile across both OS's. This is actually pretty easy do do, only that I have Avast running on Win32 and not on Linux. That means that the pop/imap/smtp redirects won't work under Linux. I need to prevent Avast from overwriting my pop/imap/smtp settings in Thunderbird. However, because this is a family PC (and the rest of the family is happily using Outlook) I want that all other Mail still gets redirected through Avast.
Is there a was to stop Avast overwriting the Thunderbird settings but still apply them to Outlook Express? If not, is there an alternative way other than disabling mailscanning alltogether? I trust myself to tell the difference between a virus mail and a real mail, but not my family. Besides, I am quite safe from viruses in Thunderbird (I force text/plain) but OE will probably hapilly run anything you throw at it
Thanks for any help you can give me!
