SSL / TLS and the avast! Mail Shield

In order for e-mails to be scanned by the avast! Mail Shield, it is necessary that encryption is turned off in the mail client software. If encryption is required, the appropriate e-mail accounts need to be configured in the Mail Shield to establish a secure connection with the mail server. This will enable all incoming and outgoing e-mails to be scanned by the Mail Shield. All other e-mail accounts using unencrypted connections should be listed as unencrypted in the SSL Accounts settings of the Mail Shield (i.e. SSL/TLS encryption set to ‘None’, ports for SMTP to ’25′, for POP3 to ’110′ or for IMAP to ’143′, by default).

    I have really learned new things via your blog. One other thing I’d really like to say is that newer computer operating systems have a tendency to allow a lot more memory to use, but they likewise demand more ram simply to perform. If one’s computer could not handle far more memory as well as the newest application requires that memory increase, it can be the time to shop for a new Laptop. Thanks
