Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

The Nortons AV email protection works by using a local POP proxy server. This is a service that is running on your machine, that is listening on POP's port.

To use it, change the following settings to get your mail via the POP proxy:

incoming POP server: pop3.norton.antivirus [which incidentally, is your machine, or localhost or 127.0.0.1]

account id/name: this is comprised of your account name [on the Real POP server], a forward-slash, and then the address of the real POP server you want to connect to. i.e taxexile/pop3.myisp.co.uk [if my id were 'taxexile' and my ISPs POP server was pop3.myisp.co.uk

best o'luck
