Test Avast and Thunderbird
« on: August 08, 2011, 11:48:50 AM »
Is there a way to make sure Avast and Thunderbird are working together.
What I mean will Avast catch a virus while I use Thunderbird as an email client?
Windows 10 Pro - Avast 18.4.2338 - Vivaldi 1.15.1147.xx

Sure. They work great together.

You can look under the Mail Shield tab and see a count of the messages scanned and the subject of the last email scanned by Avast! to insure they are working together properly.

Is your email system secure against email viruses and attacks?

The most deadly viruses, able to cripple your email system and corporate network in minutes, are being distributed worldwide via email in a matter of hours (for example, the LoveLetter virus). Email worms and viruses can reach your system and infect your users through harmful attachments. But that's not all! Some viruses are transmitted through harmless-looking email messages and can run automatically without the need for user intervention (like the Nimda virus). Are you covered against such threats?

Find out now by doing a vulnerability check on your email system!

Sign up to test for these real world threats by entering your name and email address below. You will receive an email asking you to confirm your request by clicking on a URL, after which we will perform a vulnerability check of your email system. You will receive the results by email....

Warning: By clicking the "Test my email system!" button, you agree to receive the email tests you have requested and you also agree to hold GFI Software Ltd blameless and free of any liability for anything that happens as a result of using the GFI Email Security Testing Zone.

Note: No support is included with these tests.
