SSL connections are simply not supported (in both avast Home and Pro) - they have never been.

There are some technical reasons for this - because the avast mail scanner operates more or less as a man-in-the-middle, something that SSL's main purpose is to avoid.

I'm not saying it's impossible though - it's just not supported at the moment...

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

What do you mean by out of question ? Is it the reason why my incoming e-amail are not scanned ? Is it samething in the Pro version ? Any plans for the future to support it ?

I think the reason for not scanning incoming mail should be other than this but I'm not sure. What I can read is that SSL in not supported in Pro version and will not in a near future. Out of question means, if I'm not wrong, out of their plans  8)
