Scan change the setting in my outlook
« on: May 31, 2004, 04:05:40 AM »
Hi ... I have avast 4 home version and i am using windows xp pro ... I done a virus scan on my computer and i notice afterward that my setting in the outlook express was changed .... In my pop and smtp area both had this 127.0.0.1 .... Now why did that happen and what is the best way to perform a scan ??? Or what is it that i have done wrong ??? Thanks

The change has been done by avast! Mail Protection Wizard - to enable the e-mail protection. Is there any problem about it? (i.e. can you send/received your e-mail?)

Well, it won't happen again by itself. Either you run the Mail Protection Wizard that will set the values back, or you keep your original ones and your e-mail will not be protected by avast!.
