I have installed Avast 5.0.418 free on a Windows 7, 64-bit PC, running Outlook 2007.
My email account uses the following server settings:
pop3 server: pop.googlemail.com, port 995
smtp server: smtp.googlemail.com, port 465
the servers require SSL.
I have added both servers to the Mail Shields>SSL Accounts page in AVAST 5.0.418 as per the AVAST knowledgebase article: avast! 5.x: The Mail Shield may not scan some e-mails (http://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=458
When I send/receive email in outlook I get the following error:
Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to
your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message,
contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
Please can anyone help?
Please note that I have searched these forums for a solution to no avail.
