Latest Free Avast Mail Add-in causing Outlook 2016 to close.
« on: December 21, 2017, 06:38:15 PM »
Since the latest program update of Avast Free, I cannot use the Mail Add-in as Outlook 2016 disables it as it stops Outlook working. As of this moment I have no email protection.  :(

Reported on the Avast developers channel.
Remember that for Avast it's already past 8:00 PM

Fair enough, but I still like to have my Avast protection.

Hi all,

this should appear only with debug logging turned on. As a temporary workaround you can turn it off. After I fix this problem, you can turn it on again.

Hi,

I got the same problem.
Just checked, that logging function is already off.

Not only does Avast version 17.9.2322 not work with outlook as it causes Outlook 2016 to crash, it also does not show any Avast add-in spam icons. However, when carrying out system restore to go back before Avast version 17.9.2322 it all works perfectly with outlook 2016, that is until Avast wants to install Avast version 17.9.2322. Not the best of Christmas presents as I suspect like many other users this time of year as it is possibly the busiest time for emails. Please sort quickly as it appears to me like others on this forum the new software wasn't checked thoroughly enough prior to release..

Thank you for your quick response.

I have checked in Options, Advanced, Other and Troubleshooting Logging is not selected.

Do not have that enabled and still crashes outlook, you need another workaround
