after updating AVG proggie
Published on November 19, 2006 By werewolf In WinCustomize Talk
Hi again

After I updated my AVG free to the new 7.5xx version, Mozilla Thunderbird throws the following error when I click on Get Mail: "Could not connect to service; the connection was refused."

I have checked my firewall, the AVG Free email scanner, Thunderbird account settings and everything is fine, or at least all the settings are the same as they have always been.

I have to setup Thunderbird to use the address so that the AVG email scanner will work. SMTP and POP have different ports, but everything is still setup the same. I set the Thunderbird servers to normal parameters to bypass the AVG scanners and was able to connect and retrieve mail.

I googled the error message, but didn't really get any help. The help forums at AVG and Mozilla were of no help.

This is my last hope.
