Browsing Protection Conflicts with Sending Mail on Thunderbird

Since yesterday I have not been able send emails on Thunderbird when F secure Browsing protection is on.

 

I can however send with no problem when I disable Browsing protection.  I have discovered that the problem is associated with Browsing Protection by Trial and Error.

 

I also have a similar problem wth another program I use for sending out "mail merge" emails - Mailist Controller.

 

For the moment I am disabling Browsing Protection - and being careful about which sites I visit.

  • I have a very similar issue F-Secure!!!

     

    Thunderbird will not work - cannot SEND OR RECEIVE emails UNLESS I turn Virus protection! This satrted around Friday last week!

     

    Unable to find any fixes!

  • I have had exactly the same problem, which also started on Saturday, when Thunderbird would not send or receive emails. Finally tracked it down to the Web Browser protection element of F-Secure Safe. By turning it off the problem dissapeared but when turned on again the problem came back. I have contacted F-Secure support today who have acknowledged the problem so hopefully there will be a fix soon. Have been using webmail but what a chore.

  • Many thanks for your update - really appreciated!

     

    Hopefully F-secure will provide a patch asap as it is a real pain to keep switching the app off and on just to get mails throughout the day!

  • Thanks for your message.

     

    I tried using webmail but didn't find it as user friendly as Thunderbird and it doesn't seem to include any audio announcement of a email arriving.  From the comments from F-Secure technician, there may be a few people in the same position as us which should prompt them to immediate action, or lose some customers.  So fingers crossed that there is a rapid fix.

  • This problem now seems to be resolved as I am able to sennd emails on Thunderbird with F-Secure fully turned on.

  • Great news and thanks for letting me know. Well done the people at F Secure
