well i jumped the gun on those last posts, read up on it in the whitelist....did all what it said to the letter, shut down errors....did it again, shut down errors...ok this time I did all that list said as before with all the new ports 9025 and 9110 in there liek th previous times, but this time i ran the avast email wizard,  now it all works. When it was all put in manually it did not work, when avast did it it worked...now seems to be fine, it certainly appears to be canning now, avast turns with email checks,and the process of mail is slower, so im assuming its working now.......

Now i need to do a test of sorts, eicar virus or something in email to see if it finds it upon entry...

brb, now i just may get a return on that one program, to bad it wouldnt work right......

Any ideas on how to test the scans for email????

Its called... i hate spam made by sunbelt?
Is this shareware or freeware?
If so I can try and figure it out.
Is it any good?

I found spam pal to be great cuz you can use it as a medium for ALL
of your email accounts to be used with Avast.

Also do you use hotmail popper or yahoo pops! in addition to this ihatespam program?
(That complicates things something feirce)


By the way... my solutions works, but for some reason if you write mail to yourself from a hotmail account, the e-mail does't seem come through....
(that might be my ISP's SMTP's problem though, but I doubt it)

Dressler thanks anyways bro, you can try to figure it out if ya want, but I have uninstaled it and put spampal in, all works great now. I wrote sunbelt for a refund, Ive been messing with this thing for about 2 weeks now, so ive just decided to get my $20.00 bucks back and put in spampal that i have used in the past. And yes i hate spam was a good program, but by reading the forums for sunbelt, and based on responses form hem to others there was no way to change the internal ports to it, it integrates itself into outlook and becomes part of it, 2 programs united as 1. And thru that made it impossible to adjust wit hany ease. They say on there forums it is not compatible with hotmail, and other programs, for the ports cant be changed, when i saw tht i decided to just do spampal. I love this virus program so much that ididnt want to part from it, so i hate spam had to go.  i did try alot of your settings you had for otehr programs, yet that program would not let other ports go, when i made a change to a port, the progra mwould say there was an error, and then auto corrected it back to its defaults...

so with that i uninstaled.....write them for refund etc, told them the problems etc....Now waiting for reply back to confirm refund. had it for roughly 15 days, it has a 30 day refund.

Well thanks for looking into this for me, im sure thee will be others down the pike with this same prob, so maybe its worth findng a way to hack into there defualts for solutions down the rode.

Oh and thru my dealings with them i found out that Sunbelt is there distributor or contractor, thay arent the creators( this came when i asked they on there forums, for i saw 2 different versions on 2 different sites. Sunbelt and ihatespam.org site) i asked are these different programs, the reply was no, they are our distributers, so yes they are 1 of the same.

and i do also have a yahoo account for email, yet i do all of it server side...

And the program cost is $19.99

Take care,

Open up the Internet Mail Provider by double clicking the blue icon ball.  Select customize and under the advanced tab select "show detail information"  This will show a screen of each email message being scanned in real time.

Welcome Everyone !!!

I've set up Mozilla Thunderbird:
POP3: 127.0.0.1
SMTP: 127.0.0.1

and Username without # sign and everything works fine.

I get a note at the bottom of the message that it was checked by Avast.

Question:  Do you really have to set up USERNAME like
username#pop3.server.com or just  only username without #pop3.server.com ?



Best Regards
Piotr

Welcome Everyone !!!

I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird 0.4.
When I write pop3.server.com I mean that you have to enter  address of your POP3 server and so on.
For example: pop3.wp.pl, smtp.wp.pl etc.

In place for username I use only username without #address_of_your_server.

Best Regards.

Ok, I am being a bit lazy here - but before I spend the hours playing I thought I would ask the question:

I am using Mozilla 1.6 to check multiple e-mail acounts (including two through YahooPops and one the HotPop plus several different POP servers).  I can't seem to get Avast to work.  Now before I pile in and try and make this work, is it possible to have multiple mail accounts with Avast?

Thanks in anticipation  ;)

Yes.  

I've got 2 hotmail (through hotmail popper) 1 yahoo (through yahoopops) and 2 on inbox.net (through web2pop), and I'm trying out MrPostman as an alternative, as well as normal pop3 accounts.  These all also chain onto K9 for spam filtering.  I've got Avast working on all of them.

Read the help file.  I didn't find that to start with as there's a lack of a help button on the individual avast tools, but if you select help from the tray icon all the info you need is there.

I'm just going out for the afternoon now.  I'll try and give a simple step by step guide tonight.
