    A couple of weeks ago, I installed Norton Internet Security 2004, and am finding trouble with it vis-a-via Eudora (6.1, paid mode). Here is one annoying feature. I decided to disable email scanning, and followed the instructions for this. Norton dutifully shows that email scanning is off. But any attempt to send email results in scanning. I can't get Eudora to realize that email scanning is off.

    Another issue is that Norton Antispam does some weird things. Before Eudora starts each time, I get a box saying that Eudora COM automation (whatever that is) must be turned on in order for NAS to work. It offers to do so. After clicking "yes", it gives me a box saying that COM automation has been turned on, and that I should restart Eudora. Doing so starts the whole procedure over. And Automation is indeed turned on.

    One thing I don't want to do is to uninstall and reinstall Norton. It took several hours to download all of the updates. And if I uninstall and reinstall Eudora, I will lose all of my mailboxes, address lists, etc.

    Yuch. I'm thinking of dumping Norton, although I don't know of any other products that work well with Eudora.
