    Hi,
    I'd like configure manually my popmail scanner with outlook express. How to proceed ?
    What I must write in "listed on" and "parent server" ?

    thanx,

    congratulations to nod 32 developpers for this really good AV :D

    Hi,

    With OE, just click the pop3 icon => Setup Autoconfig and it's done :)

    No need to set anything else.

    Rgds,

    Most of the time if you have to configure mail manualy, you do so by

    typing

    mail.ISP.net or com
    outgoing mail (SMPT) port 25

    incomming mail ( POP3 ) port 110

    Thanks.
    I tried this but...
    So :
    I 'm using OE 5.5, I have more than 5 accounts in OE, all come from the same provider. Diferrent email adresses but it's the same FAE.

    When I use the automatic configuration :pop3 scanner detect only one OE account :
    10500 pop.myprovider.fr : 110.

    In OE : for each account I've the same parameters :
    incoming email : pop.myprovider.fr/port : 110
    offout : smtp.myprovider.fr/port : 25
    only my logins ans passwords change.

    I think pop3 scanner should indicate in the automatic mode :
    10500 pop.myprovider.fr : 110.
    10501 pop.myprovider.fr : 110.
    10502 pop.myprovider.fr : 110. etc...
    so i tried to type this manually, and it doesn't work. When I receive an email, there's no scan !

    I tried to configure oulook express (aka my email client) like the FAQ says. But don't understand very well what is the "value of pop3 server 127.0.0.1". My FAE didn't give such a value.

    in the FAQ :
    E-mail client   POP3 scanner
    Server   Port   Listen on:   Parent server   Port
    127.0.0.1   10500   10500   pop3.provider.com   110
    127.0.0.1   10501   10501   mail.other-provider.com   110
    127.0.0.1   10502   10502   pop.third-provider.com   110

    How to know the active ports ?? the ports to type. I tried 10500, 10501,10502,...,10507 (i've got 7 accounts) but it doesn't work :(
    My pop3 scanner don't scan !
    May I have to configure OE differently.

    please help me,
    I'waiting for impatiently the new version of pop3 scanner

    I'm joining the party. My email scanner is not functioning either. I would never have known this if I had not gone to look and see if I could see what your problem was and maybe help you. I think there should be a warning popup when it ceases working! I have 3 error messages that my scanner cannot connect to my ISP mail client. I have no idea what that means. It was working fine until now. I'm having no problem receiving mail. I was going to test it with the eicar file but the link on NOD32 site is nonfunctional. I don't want to have to hassle with that damn help file that should be on the NOD32 site, but instead is in PDF form. So, I am not trying to hijack your thread. I too have Outlook Express with 4 accounts and the same accounts download simultaneously into Mozilla.

    Gents,

    Courtesy to MickeyTheMan: extensive instructions plus screen shots how to configure the POP3 scanner can be found here.

    (replace "Becky" - an email client) with your email client.)

    Enjoy ;).

    That does not display in Mozilla very well and my IE is not displaying graphics correctly so I am using Mozilla exclusively at the moment. Mine is set up correctly anyway. It is not scanning now though. It did not scan the notification of a reply here. I suspect this has to do with my gettingmy pop mail both in Mozilla and OE. I don't know how to tell the scanner to intercept the mail when it downloads to Mozilla as it won't download to OE until I open OE. I leave a copy of all mail on the server.

    Yep. That is the problem. I just opened OE and the scanner worked properly. It scanned the notification from here. So, how do I configure the scanner to scan my OE mail as it d/l into Mozilla? It works just fine as is as long as I keep OE open and minimized at all times because then the mail downloads simutaneously into both places. Tonite, I had OE closed because it is very sluggish in sending mail whereas Mozilla is very fast. So, I do not wish to keep OE open all the time. Again, how do I get the scanner to scan the OE mail as it downloads to Mozilla? I get the error message that the scanner cannot connect to the mail server but this is the pop mail server and it does connect if OE is open.

    Hello,

    At first glance, seems to me you have ONE account and different aliases for this account.

    It could explain why NOD32 sees only one account and all your addresses would be checked anyway.

    AFM, I consider pop3 scanner as a plaisant but useless gadget : Amon will monitor your mail at opening anyway :)
    It could slow down a bit the mail d/l (but nevertheless lesser than other similar option from other AV products : the motor is pretty fasssst :)

    Thx Jack,
    I didn't know that Amon monitored mails at opening,
    I won't use pop3scanner anymore unless a new version solve my problem.

    bye

    Hi,

    I'm sure NOD 32 POP3-Scanner ist working correctly - you just have to change settings. So please tell me which Operating System is in use? Win 98?

    I'm going to make some screenshots (and although in German, it should be easier for you to configure everything correctly).

    Best regards,
    Markus

    Hi ;)

    If there is no problem, there is no solution :D

    You have only ONE account : ALL your incoming mails for this account whatever alias used is scanned.

    Mine is configured like this. If I open OE and then download mail to Mozilla the scanner intercepts the mail. But I don't want to open OE. Why doesn't this scanner automatically configure for Netscape, Mozilla and AOL?

    I am aware that the email scanner is redundant. Still, since there an email scanner, I would like it to work correctly. It scanned NONE of my mail today. Because I have not opened OE, but instead am using Mozilla.

    Hello Mele20,

    Check In the mozilla mail client, the properties for each account and make sure you have changed the address and port to what you have in the above screenshot (ie, 127.0.0.1:10500. 127.0.0.1:10501, etc.).

    HTH.

    Hi Mele20,

    I see from your screenshot in mozilla you have the address and ports set differently than you do in NOD32 pop3scanner. (you must have posted the same time as me :D ).

    Changing these to the same as you have in the scanner will fix your problem.

    Kent

    Hello Mele20,

    I apologize for the multiple posts, but I have more peice of advice for you.

    You only need one account for hawaii.rr.com as all of your accounts will use only one address and port. You may delete 2 of the 3 you have listed.

    They are the same. There is no way to change anything in Mozilla. The wizard does it and I can't access it further. As for the three accounts, that is how NOD32 wizard set it up! So, you are saying NOd's wizard is incorrect?

    I shouldn't have to do all this manually anyway. The wizard should have this set correctly.

    I have 4 different e-mail accounts with roadrunner but only have to set the server info once in both my scanner and e-mail client. Also note that with your e-mail client, you will have to set-up all of your user id's with their respective passwords in order to access them all tho.

    If you follow thw above examples, you should have it going in no time :D .

    HTH.
