Intergrating Avast 4 with Outlook Express 6.0
« on: May 24, 2003, 08:26:57 AM »
Hello:

I have Outlook Express 6.0 that handles my POP3 and Hotmail account.  I tried to integrate Avast 4 email protection system with OE 6.0.  I followed the instructions in the Mail Protection Wizard by setting up the protection manually.  It gave me instructions on changing the Avast4.ini configuration.  So I did everything that was told and finally, I opened up OE to give Avast a test.  I did not observe the little a-ball icon rotate on the system tray which might indicate that Avast did not scan my emails.  What did I do wrong ???

I was toying with the Avast email protection program before and now I have virus protection for my POP3 account.  However, I don't have protection for my Hotmail account in Outllook Express 6.0.  Is there any way I can have protection for Hotmail as well?

Since Hotmail is webmail, you can't get Avast to protect your Hotmail account.

Fortunately, Hotmail e-mail is scanned for viruses at the server before they are sent to you. (I assume infected attachments get deleted.)
