FSAV PSB incoming POP3 mail scannig timeout problem suddenly appeared.

etomcat W/ Alumni Posts: 1,172 Firewall Master

Dear Sirs,


In recent days the e-mail scanning part of FSAV PSB 10.00 build 192 became very slow. Previously, the FSAV PSB mail scan took only about 4-8 seconds on messages which had no attachment. Now, it usually takes more than a minute to check 2-3 pieces of non-attachment e-mails (coming from a Linux mail server POP3 into Windows Mail client of Vista64).


Often times Windows Mail pops up a warning about the POP3 server not responding within timeout period. If I click "Keep waiting" the e-mails appear in Windows Mail eventually.


Thanks for your kind attention, Sincerely: Tamas Feher, Hungary.

    Dear Tamas,


    Can you give the steps below a try:


    1. stop the services:

    net stop fsma
    net stop fsgkhs

    2. delete all the temporary files (cteng*.dat) from c:\windows\temp directory
    3. start the services back:

    net start fsgkhs
    net start fsma
    Is the issue still persist?

    Hi kenny825507,

    The program you are running is the older version, kindly your service provider TalkTalk to upgrade it.
