Facts:

- Win7 professional 64 bits
- Mail Enable mail server
- ZoneAlarm
- Avira Antivir antivirus

So what protection shall I have? Zonealarm and Antivir are so protectfull that my mail does not come through. If I remove these two products everything works like a charm.

Any suggestion what protection software I shall use that don't annoy and block me all the time, and are simple to configure?

I think that your problem is more of the zone alarm than Avira.

I use Avira too but don't have the same problem you are having.

On the other hand, I used to have that pronlem a lot with Zone Alarm.

You could try Microsoft Security Essentials too. It seems to work real good on one of my PC.
