Ok my friends...
It's too much for me. I was wondering where the 9999 port it is or goes and I can understand what Will says, buy now, we have another problem...what it is K9????
You know? I have unistalled Spam Inspector and that's it!
It's very difficult for me because you are talking about things that I don't know. I can configure my Outlook but when you say is that? I don't see numbers in my configuration, just names or addresses...Ok, but Spam Inspector has been unistalled and Avast it's working. Thanks a lot to all of you for your concern, you are great people and I thank to everybody!!
God bless you all!!

I had some trouble getting Spam Inspector & Avast to work together, but I finally figured it out.  Below is the setup I used.

Outlook Express setup for Spam Inspector & Avast antivirus.

Here’s an example email address and mail servers:

Email address:
Incoming Mail Server (POP3):
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):

In Outlook Express

Click ‘tools’ menu.
Click ‘Accounts’
Click ‘Properties’

Click ‘Servers’ Tab

Incoming mail (POP3):
Outgoing mail (SMTP):

Incoming Mail Server
Account name:

Outgoing Mail Server
Check – ‘My server requires authentication’
Click ‘Settings’
Check – ‘Log on using’
Account name:
Click ‘OK’

Click ‘Advanced’ Tab

Server Port Numbers

Outgoing mail (SMTP): 25
Incoming mail (POP3): 110
(These are usually the default port numbers and may already be set to these)
Click ‘OK’
Then click ‘Close’ to get out of internet accounts box.

Mailscanner section


Spam Inspector is filtering the spam with this setup. I've also checked the headers of my emails and they are being scanned inbound & outbound by Avast.

This should do the trick for you.
