BT Yahoo! Mail Virus Protection

  Dirty Dick 20:52 28 Feb 2005

I'm signed up with BT Yahoo and keep receiving ALERTS. But they date back to SEPTEMBER 2004. I delete the e-mail but it comes back the next time I log on. Has anybody any ideas ?

Hi dirty dick, I gave up with the Yahoo browser/mail system as I found it intrusive and unreliable and now use ie6 and oe6 with BT broadband. (Outpost firewall and AVG free AV both work well with this set up)

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I don't use the Yahoo setup, but I use Outlook Express, Avg etc works ok, but still keep getting REPEAT virus alerts, THE SAME ALERT.

Hi Dirty Dick. I've got a similar setup. I'm on BT Yahoo broadband and as you do I avoid the web based email page and access my email in Outlook Express direct from the pop3 server. My AVG isn't running in real time, I simply use it as a scanner quite frequently. My real time AV application is Avast. I don't get problems with recurring mail and associated virus alerts. It would be interesting to see if the alerts disappeared if you mimmicked my setup.
