X-Header, Why?
« on: September 14, 2005, 07:55:26 PM »
Hello,

I've started using avast home. Now I saw new X-Header in my Postings. My first thought was, this is not fine. No one should no, what sort of antivirus i use.  So how can I remove this function, or stop display it:

X-Antivirus: avast! (VPS xxx-x, xx.09.xxxx), Outbound message
X-Antivirus-Status: Clean

Why not?

Well, I don't know... maybe someone from Alwil should say something and teach us.
As far I know, it's not possible.

Disable "insert note......." in the mail provider.

In the header? I think this is not the case.
The problem is not the note added at the end of message body but it the headers.

It's a newsreader. There is no function, to disable "insert note....."

As I've said, it's not a problem of the inserted note.
You can disable avast! scanning of News but, as far I know, you can't remove the headers.
Other antivirus do the same...

Yes there is a way Tech. In the mail provider you can (un)check "insert message to clean..." in the nntp server part.

Sorry Eddy. You're right.
I thought the user was talking about email headers and not News being posted  :-[
