Internet Timeout
« on: July 07, 2004, 06:02:14 PM »
Hi I have browsed the forums and cannot find an answer to my problem. Since installing avast home and use Outlook Express after a while I get the following pop up:
   avast. Internet Time Out elapsed
    (server pop3 blueyonder.co.uk port 110)
         Yes           No
Can somebody tell me what to do to stop this annoying pop up. I expect it is just a setting but I dont know. Thanks in advance. Chelsky

When do you get this message? When you check your mail in Outlook Express?

I expect it is just a setting but I dont know.

Chelsky, configure the timeouts both on your email program and avast to maximum allowed (or, for instance, 600 seconds).

email: Tools > Accounts > select one > Properties > Advanced > Timeout

avast: Internet Mail provider settings > Customize> Advanced > Timeout

Hope this help  ;)

Thanks for the reply Hawk. I have been getting it when Outlook Express is minimised to the task bar after checking my mail
