Mail Protection Wizard
« on: October 11, 2004, 02:19:56 PM »
where do I find the Mail Protection Wizard? :-\ ???
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Use Mail Protection Wizard to setup the protection for Eudora.


> Windows ME 4.90 3000
> Avast 4.1 home edition
> build 4.1.418
> tool kit 1.9.4.0
> VPS file: 08/10/200400A0000A0
> registration key: W1017944H14106
> Eudora
> Dial-up
> AMD Athalon


> Today I received a worm called "zipPSW worm".
> I only know this because I scanned my system due to frequent errors and weird activity.
> The virus was detected in my Eudora attachment file.

> My Question:

> Why did not the Avast program notify me with a message that the virus had been captured and isolated??

> I received absolutely no warning at all.....

> I have never received any warnings since I installed the program...I scan frequently but would feel more secure if I received a message as to the capture activity.

If you haven't setup mail protection then it is not surprisingly that Avast does not picks a infection up in the mail.

However (depending on the settings in Avast) the on-access scanner can and will still detect it.
