Not Happy /w The New Avast v. 5.0.545.
« on: May 26, 2010, 10:22:29 PM »
My previous version of Avast (before v. 5.0.545) worked great with my POP Gmail in Thunderbird 2.0.  Now, there is an issue with Gmail's SSL setting.    I searched for a fix but only found a drawn out dog and pony show..  Not to mention the need to download another program!

With the popularity of Gmail you would think the Avast people would have fixed this issue.  But whats got me spinning is why didn't the previous version have the Gmail SSL issue?

If I'm missing something please let me know.  Otherwise, I'm uninstalling Avast and going else where.

Thanks,
Nylo

can I ask you what your settings are in Thunderbird? ports and security modes used for POP and SMTP?

Simple solutions:

1. Do not have Mail Shield scan Gmail
2. Do not have Mail Shield installed.

I choose no. 2 as File Shield scans all files when accessed.

But this will leave the door open for emailed nasties...  Right?

Simple solutions:

1. Do not have Mail Shield scan Gmail
2. Do not have Mail Shield installed.

not the first time you're posting this Yokenny...you're advising again to a poster who doesn't have the correct settings for the mail shield not to use the mail shield at all....

 @ the OP: ignore Yokenny's post ... whether the file shield scans or not mail files is another debate, completely off topic here.

See the thread http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=58711.0 .  There are pictures of exactly how to set up Thunderbird 2 to use Gmail with Avast! 5.0.545.  Previous version 4 didn't scan gmail at all unless you went through the Stunnel scenario.  Don't know how your search missed it.

okay, this just means that you never used the mail shield before. The only difference is that before, in previous Avast builds, the mail shield proxy was ignoring your settings, but now there's a bug. So you can either go on like before, by deactivating the mail shield which I certainly won't advise, or get it to work for the first time ;D

 >>> in Thunderbird: change 995 for 110 and set security to none
                            leave 587 but switch security to "none"
(this does just mean that Avast will do the ssl job >>> the mail shield is also a proxy

...see if it works now...it should, if not post back and we'll check your Avast settings

That link is for TH3.0.  Im using TH2.0 because BirdieSync wont play well with TH3.0.

I'll post some for 2.0.0.24 then.  :)  For imap, use imap.gmail.com and port 143.  Avast! will intercept your mail and translate them to the proper ports to access your mail server in secure mode via OpenSSL so that the mail can be scanned.  The SSL accounts shown are from avast! mail shield/expert settings/ssl accounts and is what should be generated by Avast!.
