See http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=58711.0 for latest posting of settings for Thunderbird and gmail.  If you are using one of the microsoft clients may need to use 465 for smtp instead of 587, and sometimes 25 works as well as 587.  If you are using these settings and still can't get SSL/TLS email to work, post the differences and the results.

So how does your email get scanned?


I wonder how other AV applications handle it, for instance Kaspersky or AVG?

I personally went back long ago to paper mail, scanning manually incoming stuff with my (AV oriented) HP ;D



ps: parallel port required, no SSL!

This link was provided by someone on Scott'sNewsletter Forums 9http://forums.scotsnewsletter.com/index.php?showtopic=35838. That forum is one of the most responsive of any I visit.

http://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=458

I think that is what I needed.
When I got the notice from Avast re SSL I assumed that all accounts were affected, but when I followed the instructions it seems to be only Gmail. That was easy, and I think the problem is now corrected. I'll see if the warning comes up again.
