I am trying to configure these to work together. I had TB/K9 configured
to work with NAV but can't get AVG to work with them. Couldn't find the
answer in the TB support forums (but I have posted the same question in
the stickied Upgrade thread). Can anyone shed some light on this
situation? I'm sure many folks will benefit.

I can not confirm this, but after searching Google for 1-2 minutes I
found that you need to re-run AVG setup; select Add/Remove Components
(or something worded similar); check Email Scanning and Resident
Shield; on the next screen select Advanced Configuration instead of
Eudora; uncheck the Eudora Plugin and check Personal Email Scanner;
finish the install.

And if those instructions don't work, try these: "when installing AVG,
select the option Custom installation (not Standard). When the E-mail
scanning box appear, select Advanced configuration (not Microsoft
Outlook-recommended. Then select Personal Email Scanner ( and another
if you like)."

Lastly, you can try the Grisoft website:
[http://www.grisoft.com/us/us_ts_wiz_mozilla.php]

Hopefully the above instructions will point you in the right direction
even if they aren't 100% correct.

And hopefully there is an option for removing the stupid signature that
AVG tags all outbound emails and newsgroup posts with -- it's
ridiculous that it tells people it has "certified" a plain text
newsgroup message as "virus free".

From the AVG Control Center, double-click on the "Email Scanner" and then make sure the "Personal Email Scanner" plugin is selected.

That same window contains a "Configure" button that opens another window where in the "Email Scanning" pane you can de-select "Certify incoming mail" and "Certify outgoing mail". I use both AVG and SpamPal with TB and it's a great combination for making sure I stay virus-free and junk mail finds its way into the "Junk" folder.

I don't have any problem getting AVG to work with TB. My problem is
getting TB, AVG and K9 to work together. Right now I have AVG and TB
working fine. But chaining the 3 together is a real pain. I found some
useful info in the K9 and AVG forums and I am still tinkering with my
configuration.

And you can turn off the AVG certification notice.
