[access-uk] Re: Eset Smart Security problem

Hi all, this is because Gmail uses nonstandard ports due to SSL encryption, 
which antivirus software don't support out of the box. In some programmes you 
can configure it to use nonstandard ports to scan for e-mails, but they're 
often hard to impossible to work out. I know in Avast you have to download 
something called Open SSL before you can even modify Avast to handle 
nonstandard ports, which can only be done by manually editing avast.ini. To be 
honest, I'm just precautious and if I'm not expecting attachments I just don't 
open them. I think it boils down to common sense really, although sure, it's 
nice to be reassured that the message was scanned, but with the right safety 
and security you should have a pleasant e-mail experience. Just my £0.02 worth, 
and enjoy!
