    I've just installled Gdata Internet Security 2010 and have a previous installation of Webroot Spysweeper 6 and now cannot send or receive Outlook emails.

    I've tracked this down to the SpySweeper email shield, and if I disable this then email is OK.

    Are there any configuration changes I can make to GData so I can still use it with the Spysweeper email shield

    (I was previoulsly using SpySweeper with Kaspersky Internet Security without any problems)

    G DATA IS already has email protection and antispam modules. You should disable the email protection module then i think. But i don't know if the antispam module will cause a confliction problem as well. Try it yourself. ;)

    I agree with mevcit.
    I would disable the email shield in SpySweeper and use the email shield in Gdata instead.

    I meant the email protection of G DATA by "You should disable the email protection module" as mgbgt2 wants to keep the email shield of SpySweeper active. But disabling the email protection of G DATA may not be sufficient to prevent conflictions. Therefore i stated that the antispam module of G DATA may cause a confliction with SpySweeper or not. And s/he can see this by trying the antispam module and SpySweeper shield together. I think it wasn't clear enough in my previous message. :D

    However, I also would use the G DATA email protection and antispam modules instead. :)
