    Hi,

    Does anyone use Avast virus program with Becky, version 2.05.10, registered, email program please?

    Avast claims to be able to scan in ANY email program, for us non-Outlook users we have to tinker a little with the settings. I've done EXACTLY what they say but I get this when checking my mail:-

    Authentication failed
    Please confirm your user id and password are correct
    _ERR server's pop.****.ca unavailable.

    This is what I've done:-

    In my avast4.ini I have:-

    [MailScanner]
    DefaultSmtpServer=smtp.****.ca
    DefaultPopServer=pop.****.ca
    ShowTrayIcon=1
    AutoSetProtection=0

    In Becky account settings, under Server Settings for POP3 (mail) server I have:-

    127.0.0.1

    In the User ID settings I have:-

    croths#pop3.****.ca

    Anyway help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Maureen.

    Hi croths,

    Welcome at Wilders. :)
    I will say the same for The Becky! Internet Mail forums, but we should have someone here familiar with both programs. ;)

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Thanks.
    I'm a computer dummy, everything seems so much more complicated if you don't use Outlook :doubt:

    Dont call yourself that. Everything has a start, and things can be very complicated at times for everyone. ;)
    Regards

    My problems are solved:O)
    Someone on the Avast forum, in answering one of my question, let me see what I was doing wrong and now it works. It was my .ini file alterations. I quite literally did EXACTLY what the help wizard told me to do, but my orginal settings in Becky were:- mail.***.ca, as my server requires. So I changed the two .ini entries and all works.
    Thanks also to Madsen DK for the kind remark:)
