v5 free - mail stopped working
« on: July 01, 2010, 02:51:41 PM »

I updated v4 to v5 (free edition) last week and mail receiving stooped working.
I use Thunderbird (I also updated it to v3.1) with a POP3 email account.

When clicking "Get mail" it goes, the progress bar is moving, and it stays like that for minutes.
No error message anywhere.

I then turned off the e-mail module in Avast and then it worked again.

I see many others reported similar problems with mail, but no real solution.

Will this help ?

avast! 5.x: The Mail Shield may not scan some e-mails
