Hey! the post was helpful for me but I just wanted to ask one question. Should I block all the email accounts? Like how does blocking the emails help?

Blocking email accounts is a good thing if you don't check it very often, however, if you are part of a business, it's not recommended to block emails. If you are having trouble accessing emails, disable Mail Shield then activate once you're done. Alternatively, you can check your emails on the Internet.

By "on the Internet," may we assume that you meant, to check your mail using a Browser such as Firefox or Chrome or Safari to log into your email provider's website and review your email?  Or did you mean to include, using a 3rd-party email program like Thunderbird (Mozilla) or even Micro$oft Office Outlook?

This user would like to read, what are the security implications of using the browser+WWWeb GUI of your email provider?Can Avast! Mail Shield protect us from malware in our email when the email is read in the local browser on a commercial ISP's site, such as Comcast or Yahoo! or AOL?

OK, then, does Avast! check the mail via the browser? Would it be the Mail Shield, or would the File Shield check out the mail, via the browswr?
If you or anyone else knows the answer, please inform us.  Or, if you know of a minimum configuration change that would be more secure, please add to this thread.

Webmail is not scanned via Mail Shield, it's scanned via Webshield and File shield (if and when something is downloaded).

Good info, thank you. Am glad that mail via browser is being scanned. Over, and Out.
