    All of a sudden today I was unanble to send or email. After trying all the usual things I was told to disable incoming and out going email scanning. That fixed it. I was told that AVG would still protect me as it would scan when I opened email.

    Other option was to uninstall and reinstall AVG.:mad:

    It would be better if you could have it scan the incoming mail, as that way it will add a virus alert to the message before you even open it.

    True, but I am not up to uninstall and re-install today, and I can't get email for some reason with that on.
