Archived from groups: alt>comp>anti-virus (more info?)

Hello,

I just installed BitDefender 10 plus, and am using it with the
following email clients:

Eudora 6.x
The Bat

Bat works fine, Eudora seems to retrieve email (via POP3D), but I would

say that every other POP connect will end with Euroda indicating
"connection reset by remote side (10054)" -even when this happens, I
seemingly still get my mail, but it's unacceptable to keep seeing an
ugly error
status pane appear.

I communicated this with BitDefender, and they are aware of the issue
(going back to 2004):

http://kb.bitdefender.com/KB59

The BitDefender support representative indicated to simply uncheck
"Incoming Email Scanning", and this does cause the problem to go away
-and they claim a virus will still be caught when the email is opened,
etc., but I don't really regard this as a solution -just a workaround
for
possibly a known bug...?

I never had this problem with Norton Antivirus.

Anyone else have this problem with Eudora, or any other email
client...?

thanks,
George H.

Yes, with BitDefender 10 and Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.6. Same problem:
real-time scanning of incoming e-mail causes loss of connection,
disabling it works around. It only occurs on e-mails with fairly large
attachments, particularly images and PDFs. BitDefender is no help,
because their site is down.
