Mail Protection
« on: January 14, 2004, 03:50:34 AM »
Does Avast Home Mail Protection work with Incredimail and Pegasus?

I'm having a brutal time getting things to work with Incredimail.

I have:

1. told it to remove protection (to start fresh)
2. verified all instances of incredimail are shutdown.
3. run mail protection and select to auto protect all e-mail accounts.
4. restart incredimail
5. Now I can't send or receive.  I get a 550 error saying we do not relay.......


Any suggestions?

Not really thrilled about messing with my e-mail.  I use Pegasus to manage several accounts with different mailservers.


Thanks,

^Hawk^

OK...let me rephrase....I can fix the problem so that I can send/receive e-mail, but only if I chose to not use mail protection.  I'm trying to get mail protection to work with my e-mail program, or is it my ISP that is causing the problem?

Check if your account is properly configured for avast after proceeding the wizard, i.e.
incoming mailserver: 127.0.0.1
username for incoming mail: NAME#POPSERVER
outgoing mail server: 127.0.0.1
authentication for outgoing mail: YES
username for outgoing mail: NAME#SMTPSERVER or #SMTPSERVER

Didn't you get the error message "port already in use" ?
What error do you get when receiving mail ?

Yes, it does. I have IncrediMail configured and working. The Pegasus with a lot of accounts could bring trouble. It was discussed a lot here in forums.

Do you use any spam killer? Which program is using the port?
