« on: December 21, 2011, 05:36:03 PM »
Is there/will there be a feature addition for Avast for Mac to scan inbound/outbound email for the Mac version of Outlook?

The mailshield works absolutely independent on the mail client You use as it scans the mail traffic on the network layer. In other words the Mac version of Outlook is supported1.

1) Actually only incoming traffic (IMAP/POP3) is scanned. As our task is to protect You from the outside world and not to protect the outside world from You, this shouldn't matter so much ;-)
