Avast - Spam Pal & benign
« on: February 02, 2004, 02:53:36 PM »
Hey There

this is going to be a long post, but I need help:

I am using avast together with foxmail - works great - and benign - great too. To be able to use Avast with benign I had to change the ini file:

Trust=127.0.0.1
SmtpListen=127.0.0.1:9025
PopListen=127.0.0.1:9110
ImapListen=127.0.0.1:9143
DefaultPopServer=pop3.sion.com
DefaultSmtpServer=smtp.sion.com
[DefaultSmtpServer=127.0.0.1:25]
[DefaultPopServer=127.0.0.1:110]

This way I got this working, but many of me people are using spampal and are not very fit in computing so I set up another account to work with spampal.

I inserted
SmtpListen=127.0.0.1:9026
PopListen=127.0.0.1:9111
ImapListen=127.0.0.1:9144

Avast will tell me - err - con only connect to local servers, and 127.0.0.1 is not a local server

Any ideas??

The *Listen and Default*Server settings are unique - can be set only once in the ini file.

I don't understand quite well what you are trying to do.

ok, I help you (:--) to understand me.

benign and spampal a two programms that apart from spam (spampal) protect you from webbugs, html stuff etc. As I said I am using benign for myself and spampal for the people that work for me.

I would like to be able to let them start both on system startup and have different mailboxes use different programs. One for benign and one for spampal.

Clearer now??

Not fully. Generally, if you set in avast
PopListen=127.0.0.1:9110

and an account of your mail program looks like
POP server: 127.0.0.1
POP username: NAME#SERVER:PORT
POP port: 9110

The mail program connects to avast and logins with the name NAME#SERVER:PORT and it causes avast to connect to address SERVER at port PORT and login with the name NAME.

If avast receives the username without #, it will use the DefaultPopServer and the full username.

ok, my username looks like that:

786688#pop3.sion.com@127.0.0.1

and the server are in both cases 127.0.0.1
Ports 9025 and 9110

And benign uses the 9025 and the 9110 so i thought I tell avast to use 9026 and 9111 too and that way I can get spampal to use 9026 and 9111 - see what I mean.

If not can I get it to use 127.0.0.2?? all the way for this account??

Ok, have got it working in some way, but to be able to use spampal I have to edit the avast.ini file and stop all of the listen commands, than close the ini file and spampal will work. To use the other account with benign protection i have to enable the listen commands again.

Ideas??

If you want such chains
mail program <-- Benign <-- avast <-- mail server
mail program <-- SpamPal <-- avast <-- mail server

you need to force Benign and SpamPal to connect to the port, where avast is listening. Consult their documentation, it will probably be part of the username (maybe 786688#pop3.sion.com@127.0.0.1:PORT ?)
