And what tone is that ? Frustrated. []

[] We always try many different possibilities, so many people came back tens of times to the same thread, asking what's next if some advice doesn't help at first try... they have will to solve their problem, and they have patience... but it looks like you gave up on first one. Well, that's fine with me...  ;)
I really appreciate the work you guys do in solving thiese isues.  I was just frustrated at being told to do again what I had already been told to do and having reported that it didn't work. :)

It's OK, I also was frustrated when I see that people are desperately asking for help and then if just one thing doesn't help, they give up... that's not solution my friend. You have to stick around, work with us and we'll find solution for your problem. Someone will always come up with something that others maybe forgot to mention. We work as a team, you can not find competition between technical support staff in here. We are here to help new avast! users, as well as to help each other. That's why these forums are greatest.

Stick around, I'm sure we'll find something. And, also... I think that Alwil works hard to release new program update... I'm pretty sure.

Cheers !

yes they do a good job (the forum/technicla team/alwill).  currently if I run avast I cannot collect or send emails.  do you think a reinstall would help?  where can I download the previous version to install?  ta

Unfortunately I don't know anything about Turnpike mail client that you use, especially how to set it, because I never used it. Have you tried to set all your e-mail accounts (which are btw, 5 in total, if I'm not wrong) from the scratch ? Just like avast! doesn' exist at all... be sure to write down all those necessary information before you start creating them from the scratch... that includes pop3 and smtp server names, login names, and passwords. See if that maybe helps.

If that doesn't help, you'll have to wait for some advice from someone who is more familiar with Turnpike mail client.

As far as download of 4.1 version of avast! goes, I'm not sure, but I think that Vlk already said that it's not possible to find it anywhere on avast! web site... unless you find someone who still keeps avast! 4.1 old version on his HD.

Cheers !

Can you try the build 4.5.529 to see if it helps?
More informations here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=9007

Anyway, version 4.5 has 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.

I already advised him about that update Technical and he was pretty unhappy with it... that's why we had this little discussion  ;D

See here in this same thread:

If I set incoming mail with the mail address of each ISP and the mailbox address then I get mail but assume that Avast doesn't check it.

If I set the mail address of each ISP to 127.0.0.1 and the mailbox to me#mail.isp.com  then I don't get mail although I used to under the previous version and it was noted as having been checked.

In neither instance can I send mail.  to do that I have to turn off the mail provider in avast.

if you think any logs would help please say although I have posted some previously.

cheers

avast! 4.5 handles mail checking automaticaly. No need for extra settings. You just have to configure your e-mail accounts just like avast! doesn't exist, that means... original smtp and pop3 server names and your account info (loging name and password)

Btw, what version of Windows are you running ? Sorry, I couldn't find that info in your previous posts...

Exactly, Windows XP and NT users should behave just like avast! doesn't exist. Enter original smtp and pop3 server names, as well as original loging name and password provided to you by your mail provider.

Also, you may wanna check my signture and try to set your mail provider (avast! On-Access Scanner) properly. Activate all those avast! signatures, so you'll be able to see whether your e-mails are scanned or not.

I downloaded the build recommended--so far no problems and it looks like my e-mails are being scanned the way they should be.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that did the trick.  THANKS! :)

no sign of timeout.  without avast email is sent almost straight away.  but now turnpike reports a time out although avast doesn't.

I see we are making some progress. :)
Can you check the Time Out settings in both avast! and OE and make sure they are set for at least 180.
Did you confirm that there aren't any problems with the mail service at your ISP?

avast:internet mail:advanced:timeout set to 300.

don't use OE - Turnpike's my client.  and as I say without avast running email is sent every 60 seconds and is transmitted without any delays.

mail service running OK
