I have a doubt about the Internet Mail component.

If I only have the POP incoming email to be scanned, the outgoing features in 'Heuristics' and 'Advanced Heuristics' works?

I always had this enable, but only now remember to ask...

Thanks

Do you use the latest build of Avast (4.5.542) If not, upgrade and check if the problem is solved.

I don't have any problem ;)

I just want to know if the outgoing features in 'Heuristics' and 'Advanced Heuristics' works if I have the Outgoing mail (SMTP) scanner disabled...

So, can someone say something about this? ;)

as far as I know, when outgoing (SMTP) scan is disabled in "internet mail provider", the scan is not performed, which includes heuristics, either advanced or not.

This have logic, but why if we disable the Outgoing mail scanner, we still have these options enable to be changed?

Isn't better if these options only be available when the Outgoing mail scanner is enable?

Thanks lukor ;)

I hope that in a future, the options that depends on others are automatically disabled if the others are disabled.
