OK, I'm going to try an experiment from my office PC and I won't use preview (I can't remember whether I was doing that from home or not). If it works, I'll repeat the exercise from home this evening with the intended screenshots.

By the way, has anyone tried the new BitDefender 8 Antivirus? It seems to be pretty effective as well as being easy to use. What extra features does Avast have that justifies the higher price?

Back to the upload, here goes with a gif file...

Unless I'm missing something,  1st_Email_Antivirus is being used as your e-mail antivirus program. If you intend to leave it that way, then you simply leave your old settings in tact and disable the Mail Protection.
In your case, I would disable your e-mail and 1st Email and then got to:
start> Programs> avast! Anti Virus> Mail Protection Wizzard
Then follow the picture.

What extra features does Avast have that justifies the higher price?

Well, we're giving you free help and support... will you receive this into BitDefender Free version? Maybe I'm bitter today, maybe this is not the most sympathic thing to read, I mean, I'm feeling a bit stupid  :P

About your settings, seems ok but you should try the combinations and test as you get the port conflict. I can't see any suggestion that I've not posted yet, except:

1. Disable and remove the HTML converter you use.
2. Configure your email account to work without avast.
3. Then, let avast port be different from your spam killer, set the pop3 and smtp servers to 127.0.0.1 and test how should you write the user name:
username#pop.server
username@pop.server#pop.server
for instance.
After you can receive emails, we'll go to the outbound (smtp) ones...
The best things in life are free.

The BitDefender version I was talking about is shareware and the support questions I have asked have received a very rapid response, so no complaints there.

Given the complexity of setting up this e-mail thingly, I think I'll do one of two things, either use Avast without the scanner until the newer way of scanning e-mail is implimented (as has been suggested, although not in the next version) or go with BitDefender 8 Standard, which seems to be an excellent alternative. Whichever I decide, I've certainly made up my mind not to return to the Norton fold as their support is appalling.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has contibuted to this particular drawn-out thread - it is appreciated.

Here is answer to your question:

As I said, you shouldn't press PREVIEW if you attach some files...  ;)
