    If you receive email via POP3, it will be scanned before it reaches TB. I'll try installing TB3 as I haven't heard about this incompatibility issue yet.

    Integration into Tb3 in ESS/EAV 4.0.xxx isn't supported.
    This is a reason why toolbar doesn't work.

    See the above response from Estbird, that's all we can say at this moment. I for one have not heard that TB3 has already gone gold plus it takes quite a lot time to make a plugin for new mail clients, it's surely not a matter of 1-2 months.

    Once again Eset await something to go gold before working to get their software to work in conjunction with a third party. The reason 3rd parties release RC's etc is so that other software companies can make a start getting their software to work in conjunction with it.

    At the time of RC the code generally will not change.. shame again on Eset. One day they will up their game and sort their apparent lethargic mindset out.. :(

    As long as you receive email via POP3, it's scanned by email client protection regardless of the email client used.

    It isn't exactly true.
    We proposed some interface changes to tb3 in order to distinguish tb2 & tb3 interfaces in rc stages that were accepted.
    We are aware that TB3 is here and we are adding support for TB3. Problem is that this isn't released yet.

    Hi,
    For info it is actually released in a majority of languages: http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/all.html

    Noted your proposal was accepted, but general rule of thumb for a RC code generally does not change. :)

    I don't know how it was with Mozilla, but Microsoft changed SDK for Exchange 2010 significantly between the beta and the release version.

    Beta and RC are expected to change.
    RC to RTM generally do not. :)

    The following is the full display that appears when selecting the Thunderbird 3.0 update tab:

    The following items are not compatible with this update to Thunderbird and will be disabled when it is installed: Eset Plugin 1.0. Thunderbird will periodically check for updates to them in the event that a compatible version becomes available.

    Thunderbird updates contain important security improvements. For your protection, it is highly recommended that you update Thunderbird even if some of your Extensions and Themes become incompatible.


    QUESTION: Exactly what is it that we "lose" when the Eset Plugin 1.0 is not installed? Thanks!

    In ESET NOD Antivirus:
    • You lose opportunity to check messages you receive over IMAP (if you uses it).
    • Opportunity to rescan your messages.
    • On read scan (message is scanned before it is displayed. If it is available newer virus signature database then it was scanned when it was received).
    • On send scan (messages are scanned before you send it)

    In ESET Smart Security
    • You lose opportunity to check messages you receive over IMAP (if you uses it).
    • Opportunity to rescan your messages.
    • On read scan (message is scanned before it is displayed. If it is available newer virus signature database then it was scanned when it was received).
    • On send scan (messages are scanned before you send it)
    • All antispam features

    We are working hard to resolve this incompatibility and publish solution ASAP.
