AVG Not Compatible with ThunderBird

DA_MccoyFebruary 28, 2012

A while back a member posted their concern regarding AVG Mail Scanner no longer being compatible with Thunderbird Mail. I'm sorry I don't remember who it was. I paid interest in the thread as I too had the same concern, and unfortunately no one was able to resolve it.

I have now found the work-around if anyone still needs it.

It appears the member requiring this information has not been present. I've got it on record if and when it comes up again, and it will from what I read.

avg info:
4. Mozilla Thunderbird plugin
A few AVG users noticed the E-mail Scanner Thunderbird plugin is not compatible with the most recent Mozilla Thunderbird version. Please be informed the Thunderbird plugin development is going to be discontinued as it brings no significant benefits to Thunderbird users comparing to the Personal e-mail scanner plugin.

Please remove the Thunderbird plugin and install Personal e-mail scanner plugin for Mozilla Thunderbird (and for other e-mail client applications except MS Outlook which has its own plugin). More information on e-mail scanner plugins can be found in FAQ 4448 http://www.avg.com/faq.num-4448

That material may be pertinent, but I have located and confirmed about a three click, two character entry that works out just fine. It's so easy even I can do it.
