Email Scanning
« on: February 19, 2004, 08:52:10 AM »
I have just installed Avast 4 Home Edition ;D A lot better than AVG.
I run Win98 SE.
I only use three Email accounts:-
"alphalink.com.au" and the other two are with "hotmail.com"
I used the wizard to set up the Email, but on testing, only the alphalink email has the Avast clearance on it.
How do I set it up to pick up all three of my Email accounts?
I am not overly computer literate as yet, but at age 71 I am still learning.
Thank you for any help

Unfortunately avast mail scanner cannot check Hotmail accounts because they don't use standard POP/SMTP protocols.

Thank you vojtech, I guess I won't worry about them now.

Vojtech, doesn't this forum have a solution for the Hotmail?  ::)
