Outlook Express & Advast

  2neat 20:05 04 Jul 10

Installed Advast on dads XP home pc & using OE.
Advast now gives message "Avast has detected a secure connection from your mail program (process msirnn.exe) to the SMTP server 209.*.*.* (gmail.com).
This type of connection cannot be checked for viruses. Please disable SSL/TLS in your mail client so that the Mail Scanner will provide the SSL/TLS security itself."

What's this all about & how do I fix?

OE - tools - accounts - highlight your gmail account - properties -advanced tab - untick SSL under SMPT - OK

so Advast checks the mail. I take it that its safe to disable SSL and let Advast do its thing?

Thanks for your help btw ;)

Avast should check EMails ; it is an antivirus program
