Using Avast With Mozilla Thunderbird Mail Program
« on: February 18, 2004, 02:32:00 PM »
I know that Thunderbird is compatible with Avast but version .5 just came out and now I notice that when I download my mail from the server there is no icon in the sys tray working that it is scanning the mail anymore.  I redid the e-mail program wizzard also.  I also have the box checked to show this as well so it's not that. I also checked same mail account with Outlook Express and the icon in the sys tray works.  Is Avast not compatible with the new Thunderbird? Any ideas?  Thanks.
