    I've just downloaded and installed ESET NOD32, version 4.2.71.2 as well as the latest version of Mozilla Thunderbird - 6.0.2

    Previously, there was an icon for ESET NOD32 located within the email client, and all messages (incoming and outgoing) were stamped with the "This message was scanned by ESET NOD32" notification at the bottom.

    NOW, however....there is no ESET icon within Thunderbird, and there are no notification messages indicating that the email has been scanned.

    When I upgraded Firefox and Thunderbird....I was still running ESET NOD32 4.2.64.12 and I got a message saying that the "add-on/extension" for NOD32 was "incompatible". So does this mean that NOD32 is no longer compatible with Thunderbird, and that it will not scan emails through the latest version of Thunderbird? o_O

    Thunderbird 5 will be supported as of EAV/ESS v5. As for TB6, support for it as well as for potential future builds is planned to be incorporated in the next build of v5. Version 4.2 is no longer being developed.

    Thank you, Marcos.

    OK, so it seems that version 6 of Thunderbird won't have coverage by ESET until version 5 of NOD32 is released. Any idea as to an approximate date that version 5 of NOD32 will be released?

    On Sept 13 as it was already announced publicly. However, I'd like to emphasize again that scanning of email received via POP3/POP3S works regardless of the email client used. As of v5, the same holds true for IMAP/IMAPS, too.
