Mail scanner blocks ALL mail
« on: May 19, 2005, 10:39:56 AM »
Hello All,

WHen the mail scanner is enabled my mail checking programs (truelaunchbar, Opera and mailwasher) cannot access the mails, is there a tutorial to set this service properly ?

Thanks

What is your OS?
What error messages (exact or screen print) are you getting?

Ensure that your firewall allows ashMaiSv.exe, what is your firewall?

Also visit the User's FAQ thread, it will give you a lot of useful advice.

What does the TrueLaunchBar do, I haven't heard of it?

I use MailWasher Pro and I exclude it from the email scanning in the avast4.ini file.

LOL

If your not receiving mail then you are defiantly not going to be infected that way!!

This is a mail settings problem or modem related

Your signature shows that you also have AVG installed not recommended to tun 2 AV programs

Ahhhh-no---still the same--regardless of the provider..
As for the AVG---both have been running harmoniously for a couple months now--do you suggest I kill one off??
And whether one or both are running, I still have the same problem.

Both have resident shields running which could cause conflicts it is up-to you however I personally

have had very bad experience running 2 AV programs in tandem The general consensus is one

and only one AV Avast is the most configurable AV program I have ever used and I have tried them

All!!

I see DavidR has picked up on this thread now your dealing with a very knowledgable forum member

Unfortunately the Mail Protection Wizard has nothing to do with this problem.

Ensure that your firewall allows ashMaiSv.exe (if running in task manager), what is your firewall?

Can you confirm your email program, and which avast providers you have running relating to email scanning?
