I dont see how this would apply to AVG, it seems more to direct to outlook express settings and your ISP than anything else.


Well I only noticed this problem after upgrading to SP2.

Thanks for fixing the silly things. As for the problem, I have gotten very excited about THINKING that I have installed the e-mail-incoming-checking settings with AVG perfectly, and the clients haven't complained, but (a) I haven't yet had a client say "Gee! I saw my anti-virus program at work on my e-mail!" or (b) I haven't had a client tell me that their Outlook is screwey after installation.

Clearly I need to follow up on the clients upon whose computers I have installed AVG to work with Outlook or Outlook Express (my distaste for MS products has been previously noted in a multiplicity of angles) (but I live with REALITY , which means having to deal with MS every day) to see whether they are having such an issue, and if not, why my setup is successful. Or mine is a failure. Or the guy had to be a total banana truck...

I just got my problem figured out... My outgoing mail server requires the full user name (i.e. user_name@domain.xxx)

:oops:

I think SP2 enables the firewall by default, check your settings!

Checking settings...cool, very good, and WHILE YOU'RE THERE, DON'T FORGET to turn OFF the stupid SP2 default setting that does NOT allow one to see attachments. Now, that's a brilliant way to prevent trojans, viruses, etc -- just make it so they can't open attachments! This is under tools, security... or some other damn thing; but you'll find it and weep. SP2 caused some incredible @#$! ups (am I allowed to say that here?) since they obviously jumped the gun again...

I have to admit that I'm an Avast fanatic. Never had a virus or any other problem with it.
But, because of the popularity of Avg, I installed it in another machine. It works just fine too but only time will tell.
It is much simpler, with less features than Avast but thats ok.

lannaheim, IMHO, sp2 is a godsend. only problems occur on fouled up systems and upgrades. outlook express should have been condemned a long time ago, even before the "iloveyou" virus. should be dismantled, IMO.

I just checked the virus bulletin for avast, as of now they are 100%, same as AVG.
AVG tends to be 100% though and avast dips below that on certain occasions or certain months because they are slow to react to the bug in question.
