    Hi I hope somebody can help me. I have ESET NOD32 Antivirus version 4.2.35.0 and I just upgrade to Thunderbird 3.1. The NOD32 Antivirus version 4.2.35.0 isn't compatible with Thunderbird 3.1. My question is this: Would NOD32 Antivirus version 4.2.40.0 be compatible with Thunderbird 3.1?

    Thank you,
    Claudia

    An ESET Customer Care Representative has updated this case with the following information:

    Hi there, this will require a newer release of ESET software, currently this is being worked on.

    Thank you for contacting ESET Technical Support.

    Maybe this workaround can help:
    look for "install.rdf" in subfolder of your install folder
    Change the red marked line above and try again the integration.
    i dont use it but major versions of mozilla software dont change behavior
    that much to deny this manual upgrade of index.rdf.

    Even doing that and updating the Install file in C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET NOD32 Antivirus\Mozilla Thunderbird\ rebooting still does not fix the problem. The plugin still does not work and is disabled in Thunderbird.

    Sorry, I'm just a customer. I just posted the reply I received from ESET.

    @ claud44: Where did you get the 3.1 version? I just updated to the latest version using the internal updater and according to Mozilla, latest version available is 3.0.5. Kinda confusing.....

    Alas I stayed with 3.1 as I like some of the added features and changed the other piece of software that was involved. :'(

    I like the version 3.1 but I don't feel safe enough without having ESET plug in for it.

    Sorry but I do not understand exactly what you are trying to say.

    Correct me, someone, if I'm wrong, but it seems that e-mail scanning will still work even without integration. The menu isn't available right inside Thunderbird, but NOD32 still reports that e-mail scanning is enabled, so I do not feel uncomfortable. I used NOD32 when it wasn't integrated with Eudora, way back when. E-mail was still scanned and I was never infected.

    I tested to see whether NOD32 would add its message to mail received by sending a message to myself at another address and the NOD32 scan tag was added. That's good enough for me for the time being, until an update comes down.

    E-mail coming from POP3 would still be scanned internally, also threats are still being detected by the real-time protection module. The integration only adds anti-spam for ESS, being able to scan send email and received IMAP mail and be able to tag email messages ('this message is scanned by ESET').

    That's what I felt was happening. Incoming POP3 messages get scanned. I think that outgoing messages are not scanned without integration. IMAP wouldn't work, either, as you say. ESS does more things than NOD32 alone, so maybe anti-spam isn't working, but I have spam filtering in Thunderbird anyway.

    Yep, checked again just a little while ago and its there to upgrade. But after reading about it here, thought I'd just let it cool off awhile before upgrading. Thanks all!

    sorry, i dont use TB any longer - stopped with 1.5x (longer ago)
    there has to be a routine to deaktivate and re-activate the TB-integration.
    if there is a possibility to uninstall that within TB itself, go to the add-ons
    and uninstall it there - then re-activate the integration in your Eset software.

    It does not show up in the Thunderbird Add-Ons list under either Extensions or Plug-ins.

    ESET Smart Security Extension 4.2.40.0 is still listed in my extensions in Thunderbird 3.1 with the boldface line "Not compatible with Thunderbird 3.1" below the description. It cannot be un-installed from the listing, however.

    If it is not even shown in your Thunderbird, that seems odd. Maybe you have a different version of NOD32?

    I don't know why it does not show. I have TB 3.0.5 and NOD32 4.2.40. It only shows as a toolbar on TB 3.0.5. Maybe it will appear if I update to 3.1. When I started the update, I received the message that it was not compatible and then ended the update.
