  • Understanding Avira Quarantine Warnings & PMail Messages and Folders

    My anti-virus software says that it has detected a phishing tool ''PHISH/MSNBC.D'' in object FOL037D6.PMM and is suggesting that I move that to ''Quarantine''. Is a .PMM file a SINGLE message ? The start ''FOL''  makes me think it is a FOLDER. I don't want to rashly delete data I care about.  I wonder if this is just something ...

  • Re: Pegasus Mail 4.52, Netware Fileserver with user mailboxes and Windows 7

    It could have to do with the anti-virus Kaspersky 5.70 at our Netware servers. If ''on access scan'' for ''created or modified'' is active, then dupes in the New Mail folder appear and the first of both will be with blank content.Does someone know whether for the new mail folder an index file is used internally and the file name?

  • Re: Lost Folder - HIERARCH.PM del didnt work

    Greenman, While there may be people in disagreement, for myself I have no problems with the movement to quarantine - however, the two problems that need fixing are very clear and specific: 1. Automatic deletion of files should not be set as a default. On this matter  I have discovered in 'scan results overview' the listing of the which ...

  • Re: Lost Folder - HIERARCH.PM del didnt work

    So there we have it - the question resolved, and an understanding of how to prevent the problem from re-ocurring. But I have to comment (I can't stop myself) - how can it be that the AV producers (who fully understand the risks of deleting files) send out their 'point & click' software, with defaults set to delete? It's not as if we are now ...

  • Re: Lost Folder - HIERARCH.PM del didnt work

    Ok, so here's the bummer, The two pmm folders are not required - one of which was the folder for undelivered messages - maybe they were auto sent, and refused because of infections. The two folders I wanted are not there, so I checked AVG8 history log, and it states it found 18 infected files, yet it only quarantined 5 - the others are not ...

  • Re: Lost Folder - HIERARCH.PM del didnt work

    Yes - me too. AVG8 found Crack.S in my adobe creative folder plus:  I-worm/Netsky and I-worm/Netsky.D Now it found this in an old email, cos it was also in an old backup ie. it must have been one of those emails that never got moved into a folder. Strange that AVG7 had never found these so called viruses, as it was regulary ...

  • Alert: Turn off the flapping wings when using Network install - they create untold volume of packet traffic and network slowness

    I have determined that the Pegasus Mail horse icon that appears in your system tray (bottom right hand corner with clock on your monitor) creates a huge volume of unnecessary network traffic when set to flap its wings to alert you of new mail. You can use the following instructions to be sure that your system is set to not have the wings ...

  • Re: AV software suggestion

    You don't have to apply it specifically to any MUA. The IMON module checks all traffic. http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=37509 gives a great introduction to NOD and holds your hand through the settings. You don't need to apply them all but they will give you optimum protection until you know the product well enough to tweak it ...
