Hi all
avg has a feature on the e mail settings..."use outlook express 5 plugin"....what is this for??

I did have it checked and all was well.However...for some reason if I tick the box and try to use it now,o/look will not fully load up...so much of it does and then it just hangs with the egg timer showing??(it worked before??)
If i don't tick the box...all works ok??
Any ideas.
Running xp and outlook 6

do you mean outlook express 6 is your client or outlook? The plug for outlook express 5 is simply that, not for 6 just 5. you will need to download another plug in for outlook express 6

You don't need it ticked for OE5; I have OE6 and, as far as I am aware, no plug-in for it, although AVG works as intended.

I, of course, meant you don't need it ticked if you have OE6 - brain working (for once) faster than my typing.

Where do I get the plug in for OE 6?

I use IE6 and hotmail. Just sent my hotmail account 2 test messages the first without the IE5 plug-in ticked and the second with it ticked.

The first arrived un-scanned and the second arrived scanned and with the AVG signature. So, yes, if you are using explorer for sending/receiving mail tick the IE5 Plug-in for your mail to be scanned. j.
