Do I need the Avast Free Mail Shield if I use Yahoo Mail online

Question: Do I need the Avast Free Mail Shield if I use Yahoo Mail online

Hi,

I've just installed Avast! free antivirus on my Windows 7 PC. The installation installed something called the Mail Shield. Is there any point in having this turned on if I only access my emails using Yahoo's webmail service? Does it only scan mail if I use a client such as Windows Live Mail 2011?

Thanks in Advance!

Preferred Solution: Do I need the Avast Free Mail Shield if I use Yahoo Mail online

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Do I need the Avast Free Mail Shield if I use Yahoo Mail online

You don't need it if you are using a web based mail like yahoo. You can do a custom install of avast and untick the mail shield.

Hello Guys,
My system:
Toshiba  / Satellite C55-A   /  Intel ® Celeron  ® N2820
64 bit Windows 8.1
I am at the end of my rope. I have tried everything. First, let me say I am not good at technical things on a computer, just enough to be dangerous. So if some things I say seem crazy, they probably are.  So here is the story. About a week ago I received a email on my go daddy webmail.  www.login.securserver.net. That is how I long into that email. Now, that is not my main email. My main email is gmail, which I use the most.
The email I received on the go daddy email was a Notice of Apperance in Court #00406341. It contained a zip file,  Court Notification 00406341.zip.   Of course being stupid, I unzipped the file, thinking it was something important, since I have some court cases ongoing for business.
With research  I think it is a Kuluoz or another one that starts with  A.  cant remember.
It put a zip file in my downloads folder  Court_Notification_00406341.doc, which shows as File Type: Java Script file, 8.84kb.  That is the only one I noticed, not sure if they are more somewhere.  Then things started getting a little weird. Nothing major, I still get emails, still send them, and my system seems to be running normally, except for Avast Mail Shield security exclusions ,  It keeps poping up at least 40 times a day, saying

I recently had to restore from a system image (full restore of C:\ drive where my program and system files are kept, no changes to D:\ so my personal files weren't reset, and probably some temp files and preferences weren't either) and after doing so, and then reinstalling avast onto this system image (the image was made at a time when I had a different antivirus) I encountered a problem with firefox which seems to be something to do with conflicts with it and avast.
Immediately after the system imaging firefox worked fine, and immediately after avast's installation avast worked fine too. The I updated both of them to the latest state, restarted and logged back on. This time when I opened avast to go to google I got a warning about a certificate on google's page being unrecognised (Unfortunately I can't remember the exact wording), But I was able to follow some of the options on the dialogue brought up by firefox and see a certificate related to avast was causing the issues. I tested by temporarily disbaling avast's web and mail shields and opening firefox again, that time it went to google.co.uk without issues. I turned the web and mail shields of avast back on and I got the same certificate problem again.
Eventually I used the "I know the risks button" in firefox and created an exception, which I think might not have been the best way to solve this. Because I still had problems loading other https pages (for exmaple the links to google plus or gmail from the google home pa... Read more

I have gotten an error message from Avast when downloading email.

The message says that Avast mail shield cannot scan the emails because
I have an SSL secure connection configured in the mail client, Outlook Express 6.

Both incoming and outgoing server ports have "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" ticked ON.

I think this setting may be required for att.yahoo.com servers. :confused

Should I just disable the mail guard in Avast?

After using "AT&T" e-mail for years, I have suddenly become unable to log onto the AT&T mail servers via my POP3 client, Outlook Express 6. Can someone show me how to return to POP3 without changing service providers or e-mail addresses? Like many former members of AT&T Worldnet in this part of the US (I am in eastern Massachusetts), my (1.5 Mbps) DSL service now comes from Covad (now known as MegaPath). The mail service is now provided by Yahoo! Web mail still functions but I find it most inconvenient.

I believe that my e-mail password is correctly set up but the instructions at AT&T's Web site are not always clear. As far as I can tell Covad (MegaPath) is blameless in this fiasco. I cannot say as much for AT&T or Yahoo, however. AFAIK, it is impossible to get assistance from a live human at AT&T or Yahoo! Covad/Megapath draws a very strict line on what their customer support deals with.

I realize that I may not have provided all of the info you need to assist me, but if you ask questions, I will do my best to supply answers.

The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to Mozilla's Thunderbird v 24.0.1 on my Win7-64 desktop and my wife's Win7-64 laptop. She uses the paid version of Yahoo and I'm on the free version.

Once I get Thunderbird going, does anyone know how I can:
get mail addressed to me at Yahoo forwarded to me in Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo contacts into Thunderbird?
import my Yahoo folders and their contacts into Thunderbird?
I'm not a techie, so I'd greatly appreciate learning how I can go about this. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I've been doing research on how I can set up my free Yahoo account with Windows Live Mail. After spending several hours researching it, I've came across several different responses. Some people say that it can not be done, others say that it can be. What's the truth?

I'm not sure how I can do it. I was going by the one post that I found on this website, but it still won't allow me to use it. I know how to look for the properties and change things through there, but I just can't figure it out. I tried multiple things and looked on different websites.

Is this at all possible to do or should I stop wasting my time looking for how to do it? It'd be nice to be able to use my Windows Live Mail with my Yahoo account, but I guess I can't unless I pay for it. It's not that I would have a problem paying for it, it's just that I keep thinking of different E-mail address that's cooler than the previous one. Essentially, I can't decide what to keep.

If it is possible, can someone please help me? If it's not let me know and I'll stop trying. I'd like to know either way here. Thanks for all your help!

Answer:Set up free Yahoo with Windows Live Mail.

You can forward messages from the free Yahoo mail account to Windows Live Mail thats what I do.

What's the difference between email forwarding and POP access?
Email forwarding and POP access are two separate tools that help you access your Yahoo! Mail from a different email account. Choose only one, whichever fits your needs better?they won't work at the same time.

With email forwarding, you'll automatically receive email addressed to your Yahoo! Mail account at your forwarding address. New email will not appear in your Yahoo! Mail Inbox while the forwarding feature is activated. Messages you received before you enabled email forwarding remain in your account.

POP access allows you to send and receive Yahoo! Mail using an email client (such as Netscape Mail, Outlook, or Eudora). If you select POP access, messages will appear in your Yahoo! Mail Inbox. Depending on how you configure your email client, you can either leave messages in your Yahoo! Mail Inbox or have them deleted when you download them elsewhere.

When you're using POP access, you can only retrieve email from your Inbox and Spam folder?the feature doesn't look for new mail in your other folders. So if you're checking your Yahoo! Mail from another account, you should delete any filters you might have set up that sort email to folders other than the Inbox.


You can only use POP if you use the paid Yahoo Mail Plus account .

Guys,

Yahoo Mail now offers not only free virus scanning, but also free virus cleaning. I think this feature really will put Yahoo Mail as the best free based e-mail program. In fact, it's my favorite e-mail program. Period.

It is still important for users to have updated virus protection on their own computers. Take all necessary precautions. NEVER OPEN AN ATTACHMENT THAT YOU DON'T TRUST AND ALWAYS SCAN ATTACHMENTS WITH YOUR ANTI-VIRUS SOFTWARE. ALWAYS KEEP YOUR VIRUS DEFINITIONS UP TO DATE!

So I have this shiny new Outlook 2007. And I also downloaded the free "Emclient" @ www.emclient.com.

Using Emclient, I type in my Yahoo email address and password, and it pulls my Yahoo mail right in, no problem, no settings required on my part.

Using Outlook 2007, I try the same process, and it doesn't work. I try to manually tweak settings, and it doesn't work.

I know there is a Yahoo Plus option that gives you POP3...but how can Emclient be doing this for "free" and I am not able to get Outlook to do the same? Emclient shows it is using IMAP. I even put in the same server settings in Outlook, but it won't authenticate.

Has anyone got Yahoo email working in Outlook without Yahoo Plus? I'm just really stumped because it is working in the free client but not Outlook.

If the Vista Mail and with other email applications then this maybe of help HERE but as Yahoo has specific server settings you may need to set the following

Incomming = pop.mail.yahoo.com

Answer:Yahoo Mail Premium Does Retrieve Mail Older Than 1 Month?

I solved this problem myself. I downloaded a program called Yahoo Zimbra. Its like Outlook Express only for Yahoo instead of Microsoft.

When I downloaded all my emails to my desktop I was able to search all the way back to the beginning of my emails. I had over 20 thousand so it was significant.

Yahoo Zimbra is a nice little tool. Too bad they don't advertise it.

I have Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and College Mail... Any way to check all at once/easily?

I don't want to download a messenger service for gmail AND yahoo. I already run AIM and MSN messenger.

I think that only my college mail has a free pop3 server to use in Outlook.

Please help!

Answer:I have Gmail, Yahoo Mail, and College Mail... Any way to check all at once/easily?

Well i know that GMail can be downloaded thru their pop/smtp server into Outlook. So that would allow for you to get your college mail and your GMail at once place at one time. I dotn know of any Yahoo service that allows for this though. I think that is the only one you will still ahve to check via web.

Unless someone else knows how to get Yahoo Mail downlaoded to Outlook.

For GMail log in thru the web. From there click on the Settings. There is a tab for Pop/forwarding. There you can choose to download it thru their pop account. They even give directions how to set up Outlook or most other applications right there as well. If you need more definative directions let me know and i will give them to you.

An computer illiterate friend of mine has two e-mail accounts. One is with her ISP (SBC's DSL) via Outlook Express (OE) and the other is with Yahoo. For some inexplicable reason, Yahoo e-mail has started intercepting her OE messages. And she, like many, has her OE programmed to run continuously and check for messages every few minutes. But she might not check her Yahoo mail for days.

Do any of you have any suggestions as to how she might tweak her system to insure that messages destined for her primary address go to OE?

My friend has been using Vista Windows Mail for her Yahoo mail for a couple of years with via BT.
She then developed a problem and and found she could not use "Windows Mail" for her mail any longer, but could still access her mail by going direct to "Yahoo mail.co.uk", so it looks like a Vista "Windows Mail" setup problem.
I have a 2nd laptop with Vista and tried to set up my current Yahoo mail account on it, but no matter what I have read on line, I find it impossible to read my yahoo mail but can send Yahoo mail on it, it also sends and recieves blueyonder addresses o.k.

Answer:Vista Windows Mail cannot read yahoo mail

Which browser is being used? Is it IE9? Have you tried another browser, Firefox for example?
If you have tried it in IE9 try rolling this back to IE8 by going to Control Panel, Programs and Features (add remove program depending on OS), click on "view installed updates" in left hand column, right click on Windows Internet Explorer 9, select uninstall, restart PC - it should automatically roll back to IE8.

This will take some explaining,

Although I have used Google for my default search engine I LOVE Yahoo Mail. However, today I uninstalled Office 97 and upgraded to Office 2003 and everything went well. In Firefox, I was able to set Yahoo Mail as my default e-mail program when clicking on links. However, in IE 8, the only thing that shows up is Microsoft Outlook. Yahoo wants me to download Yahoo Toolbar and/or Yahoo Messenger in order to make Yahoo Mail appear as a program choice in IE's program's list. I tried both and it does neither. I uninstalled both because I don't want more toolbar crap on my computer.

There used to be a simple "Make Yahoo Mail my default mail appett plug in about three years ago" without any toolbars in IE. Even though I don't use MS Outlook as is customary, I opened up each of the MS Office applications just to see that they worked in MS Office 2003, (Word, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint) and I canceled out of the Wizard.

What I want to be able to do is to get that old plug in that Yahoo provided to put Yahoo Mail in my IE Programs List again so I can set it as the default mail client in IE. Also note that when I had Office 97 even on my old Windows 98 machine, whenever I would reinstall it, it would always REMOVE my Yahoo Mail Client, so I know this is not just related to this computer, It is like Outlook is saying, "No no no, you have to have Outlook as the default client."

On logging into the Yahoo page it will allow me to open the mail and reply from there but when I try to look at mail on Windows mail it simply starts a 'send and receive' but never gets anywhere, either timing out with an error code or simply stays locked on 'sending and receiving mail'.

I did buy Kaspersky Internet Security and thought it might be that but having reloaded that, checked the settings and gone through it in great detail with the Kaspersky helpdesk (very pleasant but ultimately did not help!)

Error 404 page not found.The day before this started AVG reported startpage.cza trojan, but all my research on the infected file showed it was a false positive.I also looked at the registry, but saw nothing obvious, although I am not an expert on registry entries.Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I set up my Yahoo account to retrieve mail from my POP account. I set it up to "Leave mail on POP server" and "Retrieve new messages only". After retrieving the messages from my POP account into Yahoo I set all the messages as Read and deleted them all. Then I had Yahoo retrieve messages again and it once again downloaded all the same messages.

Is something else required for the "Retrieve new messages only" feature to work?

Answer:Yahoo mail, (y-mail) Server down?

no problem here around 7am, looking at your time stamp it might have just been the server at the time

My yahoo mail will not open the window to compose a new email. When I click it and it opens slowly(20 seconds or so) and then click send email  nothing happens, the window to compose a email never opens. It is this way on my other yahoo ID's I use.  Is there any way this may be deliberate by somebody? Other than this my computer seems to be working  the same, maybe it is a yahoo problem but I asked a friend  in the same state and his email is working.
 
Let me  set up why I am suspicious I am in an yahoo group and asked a couple of people  there  by posting for help with a tech problem.

Hi, all!

It's very annoying having to open two or more mailers to check e-mails. Is there any means of configuring Windows Mail so that I can download my messages from Yahoo Mail through Windows Mail?

Thanks,

Answer:How can we see our Yahoo-mail on Windows Mail?

Hi Peter,

as long as you have all the required details such as server address, username/password, there's no reason why you cannot set up Windows Mail to connect to the servers for you:

A couple of days ago i noticed that when i log into yahoo.com and enter my username and password the URL automatically goes to us.mg4.mail.yahoo.com. I had entered the proxy address a few times and have read on the web that this is server address. Can someone please let me know if this is normal or should i be concerned because i didn't change any of my yahoo settings. Thanks very much in advance.

Also noticed that when i click the back tab it takes me back to my inbox. This should not happen. Something weird must be going on. Please help.

Answer:Yahoo mail automatically goes to us.mg4.mail.yahoo.com

Mine goes to mg205. I never used any proxies so it looks like a normal Yahoo thing.

Each and everytime I try to log in to my email, I can see an advertisement by yahoo saying that they have Yahoo Mail Beta, which is 2x faster than the current mail, and we can try it because it is available in our mail. But I still can't see that kind of BETA option in my mail. Actually how to activate the Beta version? Is it good? My emails are very important to me, so I don't need anything to get messed up.

Thank you.
