Avast Premier AV Modifies Emails: Is This OK?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a question about SpamCop's policy regarding email source modifications.

I use Avast Premier AV, which has, among its components an Anti-spam feature and a separate Mail Shield feature.

By default, these features will modify email messages in various ways.

Rather than going into all the details, (one picture is worth a thousand words), I provide here links to the relevant settings pages.

1. Avast Premier AV Anti-spam Settings Page

2. Avast Premier AV Mail Shield Settings Page

If you care to visit these two links, you will see what Avast adds to the different kinds of emails, regardless of whether or not they have been flagged as spam.

My question is:

If Avast, (or any other AV, for that matter), modifies emails in this way, do they still fit within the SpamCop guidlines regarding unmodified sources?

Thanks in advance for any help or advice on this matter.

Best regards to all,

Chris Souter
