No.  I do understand what you are saying.
If you are having a problem with something on your machine or want to inform others about something, you are welcome to post something on the forum, but we don't traditionally take "virus samples" for analysis.

virus@avast.com will do nicely.(The file is best zipped and password-pretected. Include the password in the message body.)

I think what Safesurf is suggesting is that you might want to check them first by uploading them (one at a time) to the virustotal site, which is a multi-scanner file checker. (42 different updated AV's check uploaded files, I think).

They can also be submitted from the chest. See here
You should not always expect a reply by email, the guys and girls are maybe too busy for that; I'd imagine they get hundreds of submissions.
Any reply would take the form of the file concerned being detected by Avast in the future. (Or a false positive being not detected.)

The forum has no facility for virus analysis, and is not a place where virus samples are traded, as far as I know. If it is, it would be a private matter between forum members, and not public.

Avast rarely give answers unless they need more Information about UM FP but you can send UM or FP via email or via virus chest.

That is correct.  I've just been notified to end discussion in this thread and Mods or DavidR. will take care of this matter should the OP continue discussion.
