« on: February 04, 2004, 05:57:21 PM »
My settings were changed by the antivirus for my email and now, email won't send.

Any ideas?

Can I get some assistance here?  It's telling me port 25 is in use if that helps.

Did you use the Mail Protection Wizard after avast! installation?

Which application is using the port 25? (use TCPView to enumerate all active TCP and UDP endpoints, resolving all IP addresses to their domain name versions. TCPView shows the port numbers and the name of the process that owns each endpoint.

Do you use any spam killer application?
Which is your OS? What email program are you using?

As you can see, to help you we need more information...

You can change the port for SMTP in avast4.ini (e.g. to 26): insert this line under [MailScanner]
SmtpListen=127.0.0.1:26
and then change the port to 26 in account settings in your mail program too.

Jazhawk, try changing the # character in the receive email section to a : and see if that works. You can leave the # in the send section. The wizard set mine up in XP eith OE6 and I had the same issue. I believe there is a newer version out that corrects this

Thanx for the reply and the welcome.  I'll need to check a few things and then give you an answer.  Right now I can only manage a drive by post.  :D
