Avast 4.1 Pro - TheBat! - SMTP-Filter
« on: November 09, 2004, 11:43:19 AM »
Hi Folks
I'm new here. Yesterday I've installed Avast! 4.1 Pro and I have 2 questions about mails. I'm using TheBat 3.0.2.6 with the Avast-PlugIn. My incoming mails are filtered by K9. The outgoing mails are filtered by SMTP-Filter (Lab1.de). Questions:
incoming mails
How are marked incoming mails containing a virus?
outgoing mails
Actually the outgoing mails are sent via port 9025 to the smtp-filter and from her filtered via normal port 25 to the smpt-server. If I'd like to check the outgoing mails by avast! before smpt-filter, what and where I've what to change?
Thanks a lot for your advice.
Sincerely
Housi

Welcome housi:

How are marked incoming mails containing a virus?

You can add notes to the infected ones. You can configurate them as you want. At least into Internet Mail provider and MS Outlook plugin. I do not use The Bat plugin but I think it will be the same.
In the subject field of the mail you will see [avast! - INFECTED]

Actually the outgoing mails are sent via port 9025 to the smtp-filter and from her filtered via normal port 25 to the smpt-server. If I'd like to check the outgoing mails by avast! before smpt-filter, what and where I've what to change?

I think the best you can do is download the version 4.5 Beta because it uses a new mail detection that will work automatically. Please, set up your email account just as avast does not exists. It will detect the pop3/smpt/imap ports and scan your messages.

Instructions here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=11;action=display;threadid=8044;start=0

Can you make a try and see if it's ok?

About the processing sequence, this is by design.

In 4.1, it was like: mail client > avast > spam killer > mail server
In 4.5, it's like: mail client > spam killer > avast > mail server

I don't know more to help you. Specially the outbound sequence.  :-\

Hi
Thanks for answering. I did install the 4.5 beta. Before, I was running the german version, and it seems, that the english beta does not accept the key for the german version. So I make a new install of my 4.1-German-Version.
Sincerely
Housi

Well, in fact different languages could bring problems.
Can you try the official realease of 4.5 next Saturday (13th of November).

If the english version is working, go to the control panel > add/remove programs > Avast > change/repair > add the German language. See if that works

What exactly doesn't work?
The keys are not language-specific - you can use your key for any language version (there is nothing like "key for german version"). You can install as many languages as you like...

Hi Igor
I did it once more - and now it's gone. I've active now the German Version 4.5 Professional. I don't know why the first time it does not work.
As you can read above, I'm working with TheBat! as mail-client. Is the Avast-PlugIn in TB! still necessary?
Sincerely
housi

Hi Housi, plugin for The Bat! has one big advantage: cryptic communication. Internet Mail Provider doesn't support such kind of communication.

avast does not have a plugin for Thunderbird.
In TB you must use Internet Mail provider  8)
