No, this is the pro (which is what i am interested in because of the script blocking system)....

For the log, ok inderstand that is helpful in discovering problems so i will simulate the problem again and post you the log....

We know have an updated aswTdi.sys version that may solve the problem.

How to install it:

1. Download the file http://www2.asw.cz/~vlk/aswtdi.zip
2. Unpack its contents to the following locations:
     a) <avast>\setup\inf
     b) \windows\system32\drivers
(overwrite existing versions)
3. Restart the machine.

This build should solve problems with multiple connections being redirected in loop (generating e.g. a large number of timeout messages or 100% CPU load in ashMaiSv.exe) in conjunction with certain personal firewalls (such as Norton PF).

Thanks
Vlk

Vlk, does this concern to smtp authentication and sending emails?
I'm trying your last version of ashMaiSv.exe but unsuccesfully...  :'(
In one computer, I can receive but not send  :-\

Hi there - I too have a problem with 4.5 Home (registered) in that I get timeouts with email. This did not happen with the previous version.

I use the Turnpike email client and collect email from 4 different ISP mail accounts thus the email collection is set to:
server: 127.0.0.1
Mailbox : osborneuk#mail.btinternet.com
Server: 127.0.0.1
Mailbox: crosswayl#pop3.lineone.net

etc

Avast .ini has:

DefaultPopServer=mail.btinternet.com
DefaultSmtpServer=mail.btinternet.com

I connect to btinternet by broadband 1Mbyte

Here is an extract from my email client's log:

Thu, 18 Nov 2004 15:58:40 Starting to send mail to mail.btinternet.com
Thu, 18 Nov 2004 16:08:42 SMTP command rejected while talking to mail.btinternet.com: DATA  timed out
Thu, 18 Nov 2004 16:08:42 Mail connection to mail.btinternet.com closed, 0 messages transmitted


I assume that as I don't use outlook/express turning off the mail  provider will stop the checking of incoming email.

So what do I do?

Does your email server require authentication?
Do you have problems receiving mails as well or is it just sending?

Thanks

yes it requires authentication and that worked fine until 4.5 Home updated 3 days ago.

No I can receive fine - no problems there

Vlk, do we all have to update ashMaiSv.exe, actually to patch it ? Even if we don't have problems with our e-mail accounts ? Is it gonna be covered in next update or your suggestion is to patch it now ?

Thanks !

I spent well over an hour this morning trying to figure out what was going wrong with my wife's computer due to this error.  I would not get any of these messages until I tried to retrieve emails from the my email server using outlook.  I would also receive errors when I signed in to earthlink task panel and looked at the mail server to see if I have emails.  May be this will help in locating the problem.  I am running MS XP Home SP2, with Outlook 2000.  My other computer which is the exact same setup except it is running MS XP Pro SP2 does not have this problem.
