Pop scanner not working
« on: February 15, 2003, 03:09:30 AM »
I can't get the pop scanner to listen on other ports, I added the lines as indicated in the help file to the ini.

Here is my log file:

02/15/03 01:36:47:   Can not start POP listening thread. Error  10049(0x00002741)
02/15/03 01:36:47:   SMTP Server settings changed: 25
02/15/03 01:36:47:   Can not start SMTP listening thread. Error  10049(0x00002741)

Does anyone no what this means? Or how to fix?

Also is there anyway to specify more then one pop server?


It worked once before I altered the file, but after changing it for the first time and then putting it back to defaults it know longer works even with default settings in ini.

Also it is no longer listening on any port except IMAP (which I didn't change) whether listening ports for smtp/pop are set to default or not.

The error message means:
// MessageText:
//  The requested address is not valid in its context.
#define WSAEADDRNOTAVAIL                 10049L

It's not clear from the message you've posted: Is there space between address and port or ":"? (usual address/port notation)

If you use more than one POP server, specify them in the user name field in your account setting (see section "Manual setting of mail protection" in help). Default POP server (i.e. DefaultPopServer in avast4.ini) is used only when there is no server specified in the user name. If you use "Mail protection wizard", the change of username is accomplished automatically.
