Help with Avast 5 and Windows Live Mail
« on: June 12, 2010, 02:50:41 PM »
Hello! I want to know if I can configure Avast Internet Security to scan my incoming and outgoing emails of Windows Live Mail

Which makes perfectly with Outlook, but this program is very slow and I hate!  :-X

Windows Live Mail uses a particular protocol of communication that cannot be scanned by avast (I think).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeltaSync
The http (internet) traffic could be scanned by WebShield.

But, Outlook and Windows Live Mail use the same "DeltaSync" ; it is illogical that if Avast can scan Outlook, but Windows Live Mail not

It isn't illogical, as avast has a plug-in within the Outlook client, so the AV is effectively operating from within MS Outlook and not from outside Windows Live Mail and as such can't/doesn't understand the proprietary "DeltaSync" protocol.

I have been using Windows Live Mail for a While and Avast 5 checks incoming and outgoing e-mail without problems...  I use pop in all my accounts.

When I set Avast 5 to tell me if it checked my e-mail it writes the msge. that has been scanned by Avast.

Is Avast checking my windows live mail or not?
