Using Incredimail and Hotmail
« on: January 22, 2004, 03:17:32 AM »
I've looked all over the forums to find an answer.  I use Incredimail for 2 hotmail accounts and 1 sbc.yahoo account.  Avast sees the sbc.yahoo account when setting up the mail protection (auto and manual) but not the 2 hotmail accounts.  I changed the smtp and pop server to 127.0.0.1, but no hotmail accounts show up in the protection setup.

Please tell me how to do this.  Make it simple as I am now brain-dead  :P  I tried looking for the ini file, too, and no luck.

Thanks in advance!

I may be mistaken but hotmail doesn't work with Avast unless you use a separate utility program like hotmail popper.

And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

The hotmail accounts do not work with POP3 and SMTP servers so avast! does not give support for their scanning (I suppose...)  :'(
