+ - Norton AntiVirus flags Pegasus Mail as a trojan

Attempts to reinstall Pegasus fail as long as Norton is active. There is no definitive word yet about why they have done this and whether and when they will fix it. Much discussion is in the Pegasus community forum. It appears that attempts to resolve the issue through Symantec tech support resulted in the typical clueless support-droid reactions."

Today is a good day for information-gathering. Read someone else's mail file.
