outlook 2003 : to much recipitents
« on: November 11, 2008, 10:03:18 PM »
Hi,

Avast is showing a messagebox with a warning that there are to much recipitents for certain mails. Only 9 persons are selected.
We are able to go on but this is very anoying.

How can i influence this behaviour ??

Regards

Well I didn't know avast put any limit on recipients, so is it saying too many identical emails or too many recipients ?

It does have on the Heuristics, where it is looking for too many identical emails in a period of time, but you have to have the sensitivity at High for that to be set. Check the Outlook/Exchange provider, Customize button, Heuristic tab.

Now if you haven't been tweaking and increasing the Sensitivity inside that I wouldn't think 9 or 90 would trigger that as the Heuristic isn't on unless Outlook/Exchange is set to High sensitivity. If you have set it to high then the warning count is 5.

So you can either set the sensitivity back to Normal and the Heuristics is on Medium and that check doesn't happen or if you want to set it to High you can increase the warning number.
1. Outlook/Exchange provider, Customize button, Heuristic tab, set that slider to Custom.
2. Open the Heuristics - Advanced tab.
3. In the Period Time check, set the Warning count to 10 or a higher number.
4. OK your way out and that will be it set to 10.

Don't set this warning count too high (realistic for your needs) as if you have an undetected spambot on your system it is this that would notice it.
