    the beta will not and cannot work on my windows 98se setup so its back to basics!!
    1-i need some help though i would like to have someone post the optimal settings that were posted sometime ago.
    2- i got rid of the amon icon in the taskbar

    3- does anyone know why Nod32 changes the setting
    in your outlook account settings(ie-incoming mail-pop3 to 10500 under advanced settings)?

    Hi hayc,

    Hopefully some NOD32 users will be by regarding questions #1 and 2, which I can't answer for you. But, as to the email related ones...
    Yes, these are normal settings. This is how NOD32 scans your email. NOD32 acts as a scanning proxy between your email client and the pop mail server. Your client (outlook) points to a port controlled by NOD32 (10500) on your PC (localhost) to get the email. But, it is NOD32 that actually is going out to your ISP pop server on port 110 to get the email. (Many AVs use this type of method to handle POP3 email scanning. NOD32 made these settings automatically for you.)

    Take a look through this thread for more information on email configs. It's quite long, and there was some confusion in it, but I think everything you could want to know about the POP3 scanner is in there:

    Hope this helps,

    Our screen shots might be of help - make sure to enable "scan all files".

    In case you've got rid of it on purpose: yes it is.

    regards.
