Thanks, bob3160 for your welcome.

See if this update will solve your problem:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=9007

I'm not sure to install BETA 4.5.529 - MS Outlook is working fine, and I don’t like to get into a new  8) problem.

BTW, I'm thinking the problem may be related with my PocketPC. I’ve disconnected the PDA from my PC 2 hours ago, and the problem seem vanished.

Any ideas?

In fact is the 4.5.531.
It's stable, working like a charm here  ;)
I see no reason for fear.

Hi Technical
In fact is the 4.5.531.
It's stable, working like a charm here  ;)
I see no reason for fear.

I've finally installed Beta 4.5.531 and Avast has passed with honours.  

FYI, the problem with the previous version was related ONLY with the PocketPC (Cassiopeia, ARM SA1110, W PocketPC 3.0.11171) when this device was connected with PC.

 ;D Thanks a lot, guys!!

Update again! We're now at 4.5.536  ;) Some mail problems were corrected.  

FYI, the problem with the previous version was related ONLY with the PocketPC (Cassiopeia, ARM SA1110, W PocketPC 3.0.11171) when this device was connected with PC.

You should ask pk...

I've installed the .536 update. Not getting the millions of timeouts any more, but  still not able to connect with the email provider active. Eudora 6.1 is giving me a message "POP server [my pop server name] command error:   ERR: concurrent connections limit in avast exceeded (process:NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe, NAVAPW32.exe,..." and it scrolls off hte limit of the message window.

Suspecting that NAVAPW32.exe is a Norton antivirus program, and that avast and NAV weren't playing well together, I disabled Norton's email protection nad tried downloading. This time, I was simply unable to connect, and I cancelled the process before getting the expected millions of timeouts and having to reboot again. Terminating avast email provider and leaving NAV running returned things to normal - I was able to download without problem.

You have to completely remove NAV.

You won't be able to run NAV and avast togheter.
Please, uninstall NAV and not only disable the providers.
You probably will have to download and run NAV uninstall utility  ;)

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

Setup the mail as if Avast's isn't there.
If needed check avast4.ini if everything under the [mailscanner] section is set to default. (see Technicals FAQ thread on this board)

Does this solves the problem?

not sure what is meant by 'default' in your message. the .ini file reads:

DefaultPopServer=mail.btinternet.com
DefaultSmtpServer=mail.btinternet.com
ShowTrayIcon=0
UseDefaultSmtp=0
AutoSetProtection=0
PopListen=127.0.0.1:110
SmtpListen=127.0.0.1:25
ImapListen=127.0.0.1:143
StartPop=1
StartSmtp=0
StartImap=1

is that right?

osborneuk, I'd be very glad to help you solve the problem but your posts seem to be scattered across a number of threads and I'm somehow unable to get the whole picture.

Could you please start a new thread in the avast Home/Pro forum section, summarizing your system configuration as well as the problems you're having so that we can really help?

Things like use of server authorization etc count.


Thanks
