Unable to scan Hotmail emails with AVG 2011 IS

Postby skins6983 » Fri Oct 29, 2010 8:01 am

How do I go about setting up the servers with my Hotmail account so AVG email scanner scans incoming and outgoing emails. I went into the advanced settings and set up the autopop server and smtp server as directed by someone on another forum but Ive had no luck. Can someone help me out? Thanks

AVG will only scan programs on your computer ie outlook, thunderbird etc if it's web mail you are refering to then that is sorted by microsoft at hotmail. Are you reading your posts on the net or do you down load them with a program?

Then you'll need a program like Thunderbird to pull the e-mails down via POP3 or IMAP on to your computer, if you want AVG to scan them for you. It should be noted that all major online E-Mail hosts such as Hotmail and Gmail have anti-virus scanners built-in.

How do I set a Hotmail account with outlook or thunderbird? I'm wondering what those two servers it asks for are, the incoming and outgoing servers are, for Hotmail.

Search Hotmail's support site for POP3 and SMTP settings.
