Technotiger, thank you. Yes I did read Djohn thread when it first appeared. There were not too many responses at that time. Djohn is (hopefully) a good friend of mine and lives maybe 3 miles from me, but I know he is on XP and Outlook. I am on Win98SE and Outlook Express, but his thread didn't exactly say the same as what I am experiencing, although I am trying all the suggestions in the responses that Djohn is getting.
Right click on AVG system tray icon and select Launch AVG Control Center. Click on E-mail Scanner (on the right) and then click the Properties button (bottom right). In the new window click the Configure button and then untick the Certify Mail boxes that come under the E-Mail Scanning heading (keep the Check Incoming/Outgoing Mail options ticked though). Click OK and all should be done This is from the Djohn thread, I did as Dan suggested and it worked march
march, right I have done that. Obviously I don't know whether it works or not as I need some more incoming emails. I have just sent myself a test email and it didn't have a paperclip next to it so maybe the problem is solved. Have to wait and see when I get all the junk mail tomorrow.
