hmmmm

hey Eddy,

could i get your advice on this post i just got in response to my celebrating on another board?

disable Avast's email scanning. It is a waste of system resources and no end of problems.

Here's why:
1. Proper cascading of the proxies must be done to insure correct operation.
2. Even if the email did have a virus/worm then Avast would immediatly quarantine it if you tried to open the attachement.
Opening attachements today without varifying the source preferably by voice contact is asking for disaster.
3. Having email scanning active can corrupt the Outlook Express .DBX files causing OE to not start.

I believe the expression is "Three strikes you're out!"

thanks again

It sure is not the end of problems, more likely the start of even worse.
And since when is protecting a system a waste of resources?

1] As is the case with al av applications.
2] Not true at all. It depends on the settings a user has chosen in Avast.
3] Again not true. Avast will only remove the the infected message if you use OE. Other email clients who are using just one file for all the messages may loose every message but surely will not stop functioning.

The one who told you this really should spend some time on research before saying anything or just keep his mouth shut if he (she) don't know what he (she) is talking about.

No thanks needed, just be happy with Avast. I (and many others here) are just like you, users of Avast and simple trying to help others based on their own experience and knowledge.

Keep in mind that everybody can use a little help at some point. If you can, help others (no matter if it is with computers or something else), just try to do so. Let's show the world that we really can live together ;)

It need to happen so avast can scan your email before it gets into your inbox.

If you terminate the Internet Mail provider can you connect for your email?

Do you have a firewall? if so which one?
Ensure that your firewall allows access to ashMaiSv.exe otherwise you won't be able to get your email.
