When the emailwizard is run Avast sets these pop3 and smtp to which is your local host.  So a virus cannot exploit your smtp and pop3,... so, don't be alarmed it changes this!

You REALLY REALLY REALLY MUST shut down outlook express before running the wizard otherwise you get errors!

=> shut down outlook => run the wizard and remove the settings off avast  => run wizard again,...with outlook still shut down! => in theorie it should work,....  ;)

good luck

I hate to tell you this, but you are not the first to have trouble with the configuration of Avast when tiscali is used.

I am presently working on a solution but am not sure how soon it will be figured out.

For some unknown reason, Avast does not seem to like the configuration of or whatever, nor does it run with

I have sent a requet to tiscali support in the hopes that they will work with me on a solution.

I will keep every tiscali user updated.

Start -> avast! Antivirus -> Mail Protection Wizard
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
