PocoMail + K9 + avast Home on Windows XP
« on: March 19, 2004, 05:43:13 PM »
I know there have been avast users in the past trying to set up the sort of chain I've indicated in the subject line, so I just wanted to contribute what I've learned. Through the process of tinkering around (lol) and reading posts on this forum, here's how I discovered to set it up in PocoMail 3.0.3 on my XP Home SP-1 computer:

1. Make sure the popserver in avast.ini is set to Then inside PocoMail, set up your accounts like this:

server =
username =

The "9999" on the server setting is if you use K9 on the default port as suggested in the K9 instructions. If your K9 listening port is different, use that number.

The "/110/" on the username setting gets avast to listen on the default pop port for localhost. If for some reason you don't use 110 as your default pop port, change it to whatever number you use.

I don't know why it was so hard for me to figure that out. I fiddled around with it about 3 hours last night. Then this morning I found posts at this forum about using pocomail and avast and K9 on a Win2000K setup, and that made it clear to me.

Keep up the good work on the forum, mods, devs, and users helping users.  ;D
