    I am seeing problems with both email ssl and https scanning.

    Email seemed ok until today which now I got reprompted for a ssl cert I had already marked as trusted and after that prompt outlook reports the pop connection failed with a interrupted error.

    Https I have 27 certificates stored from various https sites I have visited during the last week or so and 23 of those certs I have had to put in the excluded rather than trusted section because the site refuses to load when scanned by nod32.

    Am I guessing right in how https scanning works?

    Nod32 fetches the data
    Nod32 decrypts the data
    Nod32 scans the data
    Nod32 encrypts the data again
    Nod32 sends the reencrypted data to browser

    If it is something like that then it would seem it is corrupting the data somehow, or if it works in a different way I am curious as to how and if others have the same problems, if needed I will paste some https links that do not work with the scanner, paypal is one such link, it sort of works but the page layout is corrupted.

    not promising I have no reply to this, I guess I now know why this is disabled by default, a feature not ready for prime time?

    I've didn't have too much success on the ssl scanning feature sofar, several incidents using SSL vpn made us disable the feature, altho I haven't had the time to test SSL scanning on the last two builds the previous 3 builds failed badly.

    I have to agree with goran, the SSL scanning is very slow and several issues. Some been reported a long time ago and still not fixed. So i ended up disabling SSL as well. Pretty useless feature the way it's working now i think.
