Avast e-mail shield blocks outgoing e-mails
« on: June 11, 2016, 08:33:43 AM »
Dear Everyone,

I like Avast Antivirus - but when I try sending e-mails with Thunderbird it always sends me error message with -> "smtp timeout". I was found a workaround about "unchecked "scan outgoing mail" in Avast settings - but when I reboot my computer it'll always recheck - so I can't send e-mail again...

Please help me!

Thanks.

No.  :'( I made that changes - Repair Avast - but after I reset every options manually - like unchecking smtp outgoing scan - it rechecked after computer restart... Why it recheck? Why can't fix this setting to remember my changes?

Did you save the change you made by clicking on the OK button after unchecking the box ???

YES - of course. I'm not a noob... :) But thanks. Any other ideas? This is a very bad problem - which is on more than 2 different computers too. More of them had a fresh installed Windows system. This problem started at the begining of using the new system.

Yes  - webmail is good - but using Thunderbird is more important than the usual in my case.

And - as I know - in webmail Avast can't filter e-mail attachments with possible viruses.

Yes it does, if you save a attachment from webmail / download a file from the net / any in/outgoing data traffic ... it is checked by your antivirus realtime ptotection

Also all mail providers have spam/virus filter on there mail servers  (i dont know of anyone that dont)

Examples:
Gmail use postini spam/virus filter with two AV engines from McAfee and Authentium
Yahoo use Symantec/Norton
Microsoft (outlook / hotmail /msn mail) use Trend Micro

Many others use ClamAV since it is free open source
