Chaos Intellect pop3 email being blocked by Avast
« on: September 16, 2022, 10:15:06 AM »
Ever since Avast free edition updated to the latest level it appears to block email communication within Chaos Intellect, with the following error 'Login failure An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine.'.  Disabled Avast shields, email goes through without a problem.   Added Chaos Intellect to exception list ... made no difference. 

Test within Chaos Intellect of incoming/outgoing connections to server - test fine.  Pop3 email accounts.

Assume problem is Avast as it started after the update, but with contact Chaos Intellect support as well.

Found on other thread an issue with Outlook -  going to Settings > Core Shield > Protection >  Mail Shield and Scan Inbound Emails (Pop3/Imap) and disabling this option works.   From reading Outlook thread looks like fix is on the way, so I imagine that will work for Chaos Intellect as well.
