Hi again,

I think your firewall is blocking avast proxy, your error message shows no ssl, as if the client (Thunderbird or OE) was attempting to connect directly. Settings on the screen shots are OK. Wanted to ask but thought obviously, you have scan inbound and outbound messages checked in Avast right ?

OK it's listening, which is completely normal, but what happens when there's some traffic...I don't know ZA interface (used it once or twice very shortly long ago), so what tell the logs, look for blocked connections...

I think then ZA display "Blocked from Listening...."

but yes, I will check the report log...
(btw in the alert/logs panel and programs, there is no entry regarding avast service atm)

disable ZA.... well, i admit I haven't tried that ( damn! the idea didn't even occurred to me) ...
yes ... worth a try ... will try this late night today... (see I can't reboot now... in middle of something )

btw in the meantime I checked few old logs of ZA, in one of them I find following entry regarding avast...
(although I'm pretty sure it has nothing do with the present problem.... but still who knows  ::))
Code: [Select]
ACCESS,2010/02/01,22:43:08 +5:30 GMT,avast! Service was blocked from accepting a connection from the Internet (<ISP here>:DNS).,N/A,N/A

that's what you called nothing to do with  ??? that shows clearly that avast has been denied access to internet traffic, at least once...

But that's incoming(accept) connection blocked and also from ISP:DNS, in fact it seems pretty common with any internet facing app I use....

for example logs are full of following entries:
Code: [Select]
ACCESS,2010/02/01,17:42:30 +5:30 GMT,avast! antivirus Update was blocked from accepting a connection from the Internet (ISP:DNS).,N/A,N/A
ACCESS,2010/02/01,22:41:24 +5:30 GMT,Opera Internet Browser was blocked from accepting a connection from the Internet (ISP:DNS).,N/A,N/A

and those app's runs perfectly...

very true Logos... seems like perfect mistry   ::)

anyway by poking around service applet, it seems that the mail scanner depends on RPC and something called aswMon2, any idea where the hell I suppose to find aswMon2? ( I want to check it status, and it's not listed in Non-Plug'n'Play drivers under device manager)  :(

Sorry for interrupt....

One of avast!5 user said he has no problem with Gmail and Thunderbird, and he said about this topic.
He said "Try to insert 995 into POP Port(s) in 'Redirect settings' and set Thunderbird's SMTP port as 25."

I hope this can help your problem.
