After an avast update, email would no longer send with SMTP on port 80. This particular server "SMTPout.secureserver.net" is a relay server and used by several different hosting firms, including GoDaddy. I found this reference to the avast! Redirect Settings on Internet, but it would go against logic to clear all of these settings, as the author suggests. What would be the repercussions of his actions? What would be the correct Redirector Settings for SMTP on port 80?
This is the web article that I referenced above:
"It seems like a lot of people are having trouble with the latest version of Avast, the free virus checking software. Suddenly, Avast is blocking access to POP and IMAP email accounts.
If you're having this problem, here's the fix:
1. Open Avast
2. Click on 'Settings' (upper right corner of page)
3. Click on 'Troubleshooting'
4. Click on 'Redirect Settings'
5. Clear all the port #'s from each field
6. Check 'Ignore Local Communication'
7. Click 'OK'
8. Close Avast
Wouldn't it be nice if all of life's problems were that easy to solve?"
