e-mails protection

Recommended Posts

With Windows XP-SP3, I just dowload and install NOD32 trial version.

 

I've unchecked "web protection" and "e-mail protection" (It's a french version)

 

I start my e-mail client, but my firewall Kerio says that NOD32 wants to connect to port 110 and 995 (the e-mails ports).

 

what's happen ?

On Windows XP, ekrn works as a local proxy for http(s), pop3(s) and imap(s) communication. So any application that communicates via these protocols has the communication routed through ekrn. As a result, you see ekrn connecting outside in a 3rd party firewall for instance.

OK. I guess it's the same "problem" as the other question named "web protection" for port 80 and 8080 (except the difficulty to load web-pages).

If you want to prevent NOD32 from scanning the internet traffic at all (so that this "redirection" won't happen) you could of course completely deactive the protocol scanning:

However this is not recommend as you will lose many protection layers if you do so. Additionally if you do so the phishing protection won't work and e-mail protection will be restricted.
