I have been using Avast free for a few years now. After the last update I can not use gmail as an outgoing server. I always get the message cants send for unknown reason. I tried every setting in Gmail and every port. Other servers are not affected, seems only Gmail as outgoing. Then I switched off Avast email shield and it worked. Does anybody know of a fix besides having to disable the email shield?
Using Win 7 Ultimate and the latest Tbird and latest Avast.
