« on: December 30, 2010, 08:04:31 PM »
Started getting this message today. No recent system changes
 
avast! has detected a secure connection from your mail program(processs Skype.exe) to the POP server 70.234.190.8 (sbcglobal.net

I use OUTLOOK for email, I have gmail and yahoo as well, and I do use Skype but not for email

Any ideas appreciated

Is it possible that Skype is using one of the email ports that would normally be monitored by the mail shield ?
