    Beware Norton Antivirus 2001 bug

    Just spent the better part of two days sorting out problems created by installing Norton Antivirus 2001. Seems the thing reconfigures server settings in Outlook Express when email security is selected, such that user can't use OE for mail anymore and NAV 2001 doesn't work with it anyway. From what I gathered from the Symantec tech site, it's a known bug with no fixes. Beware. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>

    Of what?
    Running NAV 7.07.230D with E-Mail protection on and experiencing no problems. Even through ZoneAlarm.

    I have to agree with dlphelps here.

    I've been using Norton AntiVirus 2001 since it's been out with MANY e-mail programs with no problem whatsoever. And Outlook Express 5 & Outlook 2000 are two that it recognizes & configures e-mail virus protection for automatically. <img src=/S/nope.gif border=0 alt=nope width=15 height=15>

    i don't think i'd call it a bug, it's supposed to be a feature. Unfortunately it doesn't work right all the time and i think autoprotect and tighter security setting in express is better than scanning mail as it arrives.
