    bug free and is safe to install?

    Happy Holidays to all.

    I've just gone back to Version 2.7 on the PC I use for email and NNTP. I won't upgrade again until the problems with Outlook Express are fixed.

    Your safer with web based mail. I use my AT&T email which is Yahoo. Alot of viruses come through OE. NOD32 3.0.621.0 has been perfect for me.

    With 13 email accounts I'd be checking web sites all day. OE lets me keep everything together in one place.

    Outlooks part of windows, NOD should fit that , we shouldnt have to change email clients to suit our AV, thats crazy.

    Here's my experience -

    NOD 32 AV 3.0.621.0, ZoneAlarm "free", Thunderbird 2.0.0.9 (current version) running on XP

    No problems at all.

    For me it's almost flawless, only issue I can see is the missing extended menu which only affects some people. (including me)

    I have it running on XP Home together with AVG-Antispyware and Outpost 4 (last build)

    OE is perfectly usable with a 'good' virus scanner. It's not even needed to have your email scanned by an AV program, as all bad stuff is pickup by the real time module. I always like to have all bad stuff stopped before it gets through the front door.
    Stating that you're always safer with web mail is just not true, as it all depends on the anti virus scanning the ISP is using. It's getting better all the time, but I would not put all my eggs in the one basket.
    There's been stated here, that we should use a better email client like Thunderbird, but now I can't get Thunderbird integrated in Nod. So.......use OE or Windows Mail, but make sure you have a good AV program to back you up and there's nothing to worry about. That's what they all sell their programs for, don't they?

    I use NOD32 thats why I am in this thread. Yahoo doesn't let you open up attachments unless it scans it with Norton. Yahoo email is very safe.

    I'm not suggesting that you should have to change email client, but I will say that I'm using The Bat! client and have no issues whatsoever with it, nor indeed ever had any with various versions of nod including 3.0.621.

    Is tagging working with The Bat and did you check if your outgoing mail is checked/counted?
    Great, that Nod is working ok for you!

    Go for it. I can't find any problems. I'm using Outlook with no issues. Just a thought. Some of our FW's have e-mail filters for phishing and spam. If that's on plus NOD's incoming and outgoing e-mail filters, plus what ever other apps you may be running in your browser, could OE be experiencing conflicts? :blink:

    Try sending a read -receipt.... cant be done.
    Try seeing your account details in sent items..... cant be done.

    No Issues ? Think again.

    For my configuration, V3.0.621.0 works well so far. Partially listed as post #88 here:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=195309&page=4

    V3.0.566.0 had issues related to Real-time scanning. I use Outlook to collect my mail from my Yahoo, Gmail and Verizon accounts and have had no issues with that at all, even with V3.0.566.0.

    I’m not happy about the proxy implementation, but at least I can bypass it for everything other than Outlook and hope that the Real-time scanner combined with the AV scanning my HW firewall does is good enough.

    Poutine,

    I have always used Outlook and have never used Outlook Express. I don't use Read Receipts, but I tried one just now to myself and it appeared to work fine. I receive hundreds of emails per day and haven’t had any problems with sender property information making it through or Outlook's pitiful junk mail filtering either.

    I have never or ever will use outlook or OE for my emails.

    I've always used netscape, Mozilla's and now Seamonkey.

    Thanks everyone for your input..

    I think you jinxed me. LOL I just noticed that although regular e-mails get through as usual, if someone sends me an e-mail with a video in it like a U-tube video which is a few MBs in size, it hangs at 50% in Outlook until it times out with an error message saying it can't do it. Any idea what that could be? Please disregard my previous statement, as I misunderstood your statement. I haven't checked read receipts etc.
