Thanks, how will I be notified of this? and where in the forum will the notification be.
Most probably here.

Also are you saying in my situation I should wait till this Beta refresh you talk about?
I think so. You need to join the beta to receive the 'beta refresh' (or update), otherwise, you'll need to wait the final release of the new version and upgrade the program itself.

Dear Tech,

I think I will wait till either I see a notification on the beta, then I will use the beta file to join, or as you say wait till the final then I can update the program, does this sound correct and feasible?

As I see no point in joining the Beta when the problem is'nt fixed yet.

Sure.

Just one other thing Tech,

When I do want to join, all I need to do is click on the Beta file, is that right?

The aswbeta.exe file I mean, and this will change my version 1201 into the Beta?

Yes. It will download and install the beta version. Read Vlk's instructions.
When the beta finishes, you just update the program and you'll be back to the official release.

That's great, looking forward to it, as I say I will wait till I see it's been fixed, or perhaps trust the fix has worked, and wait till the final.

The problem with the Outlook plugin has already been identified. A beta refresh should be released soon.

I'm looking forward to the next release.
Thank you.

I'm not being able to send anything from Chest, using SMTP or IMAP.
I've disabled both Outlook plugin and Internet Mail provider.
I've tried two pop3 configurations, one of them from GMail and other a non-SSL mail.
The message says the email was sent.
I've look into Outlook and receive a return message that the email was not delivered to virus (at) avast.com.
Why?

Good enough reason for me to stay away from the Beta till all this has been fixed.

Yes.

I'm not being able to send anything from Chest, using SMTP or IMAP.
I've disabled both Outlook plugin and Internet Mail provider.
I've tried two pop3 configurations, one of them from GMail and other a non-SSL mail.
The message says the email was sent.
I've look into Outlook and receive a return message that the email was not delivered to virus (at) avast.com.
Why?
Are you recieving the files I've sending?
Chest says:
Code: [Select]
Emailing selected files
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The program will try to email 1 selected file(s) from the Chest to ALWIL Software
The following file has been sent by email:

Original file name:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Action was completed successfully!

But I receive a mail saying the message could be received by virus (at) avast.com.
