Another SMTP option ?
« on: February 16, 2004, 01:46:52 PM »
My internet mail provider in avast! On-access Scanner is set to HIGH. Everything works just great, no problems at all. BTW, I use Outlook Express as my e-mail and newsgroup client (still...).

I noticed in avast! settings another SMTP option and I wonder what is it for. All boxes are empty except "PORT" which is set to 25 (see attachment)... Should I set something under "SERVER ADDRESS" and "FROM ADDRESS" ?

Thanks in advance !

BTW, any recommendations regarding new mail client are welcome. I need something that can read e-mail as good as newsgroups inside the same client... also, it would be very helpful if it can "read" my hotmail e-mail account (WEB mail) as Outlook Express does it... I really don't have problems with my Outlook Express 6, but it's kinda boring... I really need some change...  :)

Cheers !

This setting is not related to the e-mail protection, it's for avast! itself.
Sometimes, avast! may need to send e-mail messages - for example, if you define your "alerts" (messages to be sent when a virus is found), or for sending files from the Chest to ALWIL Software, etc. In these cases, this is the SMTP setting that will be used.

OK, thanks Igor for your promt response... everything is clear now, except, in case I want to send files from CHEST to Alwil Soft, what should I put in those empty fields ?

Cheers !

Will we have the option for authentication in next version?
I mean, now, I cannot send a file or receive an alert unless I'm connected to the default smtp server and my email has the same smtp server...  :-\

Your smtp server address (e.g., smtp.yahoo.com)
Your email (the alert or file sender) (e.g., user@yahoo.com)

Hope this help!  ;)

Odd -- I thought the iNews said it had been added this time.  Did I mis-read that, or was it a (very rare) error in the iNews?
