I am having an issue in SBS 2003 where Avast is causing the POP3 Connector to freeze when it finds a virus in an email.

The only way to get it to work is to kill the pop3 connector and remove the email from the external web server.

The version we are running of Avast is Avast Server 4.8 Antivirus.

I am unable to find a fix for this issue, all of Avasts settings appear to be correct.
