Email Wizard ?
« on: May 26, 2005, 07:07:48 PM »
I can´t find Email Wizard from Avast. Where is it ? I only see files:
Help, Avast! and Avast! website. Also when I´m using Microft Outlook ( non Outlook Express) Avast doesn´t scan my emails and I´m not able to change setups because there´s a problem to find Email Wizard.  After startup Microsoft Outlook I saw AVAST! PLUGIN screenshot.

I fixed some setups to Outlook but I cannot be sure that Avast is scanning my emails in Outlook (Microsoft) because Avast doesn´t write down any line (properties)  about scanning my emails  :(

If you have XP it is configured automatically otherwise go to your avast file and click ashpopwz.exe

Left click the blue ball, select Outlook, select customize, select inbound mail ensure the item insert notes to clean message is ticked then do the same for outbound I read your edit after I posted my last so ignore that ;D

To see if avast! is scanning emails, check one of these points:

1) Is the avast icon (the special one of email scanning) be shown in the system tray?

2) Is your email header with the lines X-Antivirus: avast! (VPS 0XXX-X, XX/XX/2005), Inbound message and X-Antivirus-Status: Clean? (Right click the message, choose Properties and Details)

You can test the security of your email system here: http://www.gfi.com/emailsecuritytest/

About Outlook and avast notes, see avast4.ini file thread: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1647
There is a special value for troubleshooting this  :)

Even the clean notes added at the end of the message?  :)

No no. That "clean notes" appears to my all messages after re-start my computer.
I checked that out many times today and that blue ball is rolling all the time when I´m using MS Outlook and MS Outlook Express and many more email clients.
