Dose Avast also protect other client Emails?
« on: March 23, 2003, 05:13:26 AM »
Does Avast also protect me when I use Yahoo & hotmail, or any other email clients.  I use these for anonymity when I chat and things. ???

And Thank You Very much for allowing home puter users to have this for free, otherwise I would be sunk.
I'm disabled and live on a fixed income and my puter is my life line to the world.  Keep up the good work.  ;D :-*

Hi,

In short: yes, if they are based on SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 protocols. This is almost always true, except for web-based mail systems. There is no direct support for webmails because there is no standard interface avast could use to get its job done...

Please see, e.g., the following thread: http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=89;start=0

And Thank You Very much for allowing home puter users to have this for free, otherwise I would be sunk.

You're very welcome! :D Glad we could help a bit... :)

Take care,
