Well everything isn't so perfect. There is a bug in Chest submission mechanism.
You fixed the checkbox,not to show submission protocol (SMTP/MAPI) which works correctly now,but problem is that SMTP/MAPI selected setting isn't persistant and is always automatically switched back to MAPI,even though i have selected SMTP (and checked not to show me that dialog again).
Now i also cannot find any way to get that SMTP/MAPI selection dialog back again (Outlook Express Create new profile opens directly). Please fix this,because i'm unable to send anything to you via Chest.

Hi,

Yesterday Avast Home edition installed the 4.6.652 upgrade. Today I constantly get the following error when I try to POP my mail:
"concurrent connections limit in avast exceeded"

Do you use mail/news programs that create multiple simultaneous connections ?

Restarting avast! should be enough.

Also can you please change update tray icon (red&green arrows) to display only when VPS is actually updated,not on each update check (even if there is none).

just downloaded 4.6.652 ... until now i did web-updates to new versions or had to completely uninstall/reinstall because of problems.
what's the best way to update to a new version ?? uninstall old version first or just install 'on top' of old version ?

You can overinstall (upgrade). Installing the new over the old will keep your settings.

Hi!
I am still using avast home 4.6.623 without any single problem so far..
Is it worth to update to the new 4.6.562 version since the 4.6.623 works flawlessly?Does 4.6.562 offer any significant additional security/protection features?
Or is it mainly a bug fix version for problems that some users had with 4.6.623 (especially with the Webshield)?
Thanks!

In fact, it seems most a 'fixed' version (WebShield and firewalls, specially ZoneAlarm).
But it includes some other features and corrections in the mail scanner and archive file types.

Ok, to scan it needs some time... But it shouldn't be that much...
Did you disable the 'inteligent stream scanning' into the WebShield properties (settings)?

My only comment has to do with the new Zone Alarm detection.

Probably the new detection can't distinguish between ZA Pro and the free version which I use, but maybe that pop-up screen the first time you start the new avast could clarify that the privacy-protection features are not in the free ZA and therefore (for most people) it's fine to check "No" if that's what you're using.

Admittedly that's partly covered in that "no previous problems" wording, but a little expansion/clarification wouldn't hurt.

  Ok  I have searched but can not find a thread on this

         when I installed the update (using Zone alarm free) I got a wonderful info box on the fact that there might be a problem along with a yes /no boxes about letting avast do the trans changing below this was a link for "How to configure your zone alarm proxy"
I figured I would click on that after hitting the Yes button but it closed
      and now I have no idea where I stand ?? I don;t see any problems but it was clear I needed to make changes to Zone alarm can someone PLEASE tell me what they are

thanks guys
     Hey Technical' funny start of this thread -yes you are that good
 and I am sure this issue of mine is minor
