    'm trying to set up a manual configuration of an email account using this scanner. However, despite reading your manual on this, I still can't configure my system. I keep getting the following message from my email program: Error reported by server. Make sure POP 3 server name is correct. I've set the address in my email program to 127.0.0.1 as described, and the address in NOD32 for POP3 to that of my pop server.

    Any suggestions please?

    This might help you.
    You also need to change port in your emailer to a port higher than 10,500 ( default ) say 10,580 and set Nod to listen on that port. It will then redirect to 110

    I am still unable to set up Mozilla mail to use NOD32. When I tried your suggestions I get an error message from Mozilla "failed to connect to server local host". I think that happens because when I change the server name to "local host", Mozilla no longer asks me for my log on name and password for my pop-server.rr.com main identity. Mozilla will not fetch the rr main identity mail (or any of my email accounts ) until I type in the log on name and password for that account. It also matters which identity is default for RR and which is default for OE. I have them different and Mozilla sees which is default for RR but if I change it to local host then Mozilla can't see that. How do I tell Mozilla that "local host" is my main OE identity? How would I tell Mozilla that my second RR identity is now also "local host' but that I only want Mozilla to fetch the mail for the second identity? How will Mozilla know to ask me for the log on name and password for the second identity if it is also now called "local host"? Plus when I change it to local host then I can't tell my accounts apart. They are all now called local host! How do I tell which one is which? (Much less how does Mozilla now tell them apart and tell which is default! for OE and which is default for RR)!

    If this is not the problem then what is? i am so frustrated by this! I have read everything on this board over and over, that concerns setting up email, and I cannot set up the Mozilla mail. Now, if I tell NOD to check only Mozilla mail that works fine. Just as it works fine if tell NOD to check only OE but no matter how I do this, I cannot get it to check both.

    I just downloaded the official Mozilla 1.2 just released after carefully uninstalling the other version and getting rid of files left behind. So this is a clean installation. I have had no problem with this same set up (receiving my RR mail and MyRealBox mail both in OE and Mozilla) when I was using NAV so what am I missing here?

    Please, no comments suggesting that I should only use one email client! I have received my mail in both OE and either Mozilla or Netscape 7, or before that, an earlier Netscape and never had any problems doing so with NAV. I don't see why I should have problems doing so with NOD32.

    Mele,

    We did have this discussion before. On October 31, 2002 you stated - amongst others in this thread you got it all working in regard to Mozilla.

    I'm kind of puzzled as of why you do state otherwise once again. I suggest reading the whole thread mentioned above once more.

    Spaceboy,

    Can you confirm all's working after reading the instructions as mentioned by Mickey?

    regards.

    paul

    Note that it's "localhost" (one word). You can also specify "127.0.0.1" instead.

    What you should do (for each email account you want to get mail from)...

    1. Open NOD32 POP Scanner
    2. Click "Setup"
    3. Click "Add"
    4. Enter a number in "Listen on", suggested numbers are between 1024 and 65535. For example "4321".
    5. Enter the POP3-server you got from your ISP in "Parent server". For example "pop.isp.com".
    6. If the ISP uses a non-standard port for POP3 (VERY uncommon), change "110" to the port specified by the ISP.
    7. Click "OK"
    8. Open your e-mail client
    9. Edit the settings for the e-mail account
    10. Change from your ISPs POP3-address (for example, "pop.isp.com") to "localhost".
    11. Change from your ISPs port ("110") to the number you specified at (4). (For example "4321")
    12. You are all done.

    That should be all. If you have several accounts, just repeat the steps above, but choose another port at (4) and (11). (For example "4322")

    It's also possible to retrieve most webmails using Web2Pop in conjuction with nod.
    Web2Pop replaces localhost in your emailer as well as in nod.

    If it does not work using the example on my page http://pages.infinit.net/carbo1/nod32emailersetup.html , then look for spelling errors such as localhost as pointed out before is in one word

    Anders, your instructions are so clear that i l added them to my page ! ;)

    I don't believe I ever said that I had gotten NOD32 to work with Mozilla mail. What I said, I believe, was that I had finally gotten Mozilla mail to behave in a stable manner and work properly. Someone here, had pointed out that I should try to do that before I worked on getting Mozilla mail to work with NOD32. But I didn't use NOD32 for a while. I just began using it again about two weeks ago and I did not try to get to work with Mozilla until I uninstalled the build I had and got the official release of 1.2 yesterday whic ish more stable than the build I was using.

    Anyhow, that is sort of beside the point now as I can happily report that I finally got NOD32 to work correctly with both OE and Mozilla! :) I see what mistake I made. I was real sleepy and I had changed the server to localhost (I do know that is one word so I did not type that wrong...I typed it as two words in the post because I used a spell checker, but I typed it as one word when I put it in the server location). The sleepiness caused me to mess up when I went to the NOD32 mail settings. Instead of getting rid of the setting that said "listen on 10500" and then put in its place "listen on 10573" which is what I had listed in the Mozilla settings for that account, I had just added the latter so that is why I got the error message.

    What had me really confused was that the instructions various persons gave me here, while excellent, none of them explained that my account names would be changed in Mozilla when I changed the server settings to localhost. Funny though, the Master account name didn't change, but the other accounts changed the name to localhost1 , localhost 2, etc. It would have been clearer to me if it had been explained that the Main account name would not change, but the others would.

    I'm just relieved that it finally works. I hope the next version of NOD32 sets up commonly used accounts through the Wizard. I will never be able to recommend NOD32, no matter how good it is, to my friends if they have to manually set up scanning of their mail accounts. None of them use OE! They use Netscape7, Eudora lite, (many here use Eudora because that is supplied by the main local ISP's), AOL. Some other antivirus vendors have a distinct advantage over NOD32 in this respect as the ones I am familar with all use a wizard and the wizard sets up more than just OE accounts. While this is minor, I also do not like that my accounts are now called (at least some of them) localhost in Mozilla. When I used other antivirus, and I have tried many other vendors, the accounts were never changed from pop-server.hawaii.rr.com.

    Mele,

    Glad to hear you've sorted it out.

    As for you recommending NOD32 in regard to the POP3 scanner: have a look at the "New NOD32" thread, first post:

    regards.

    paul
