Submission + - Norton AntiVirus flags Pegasus Mail as a trojan

dtobias writes: "In an update on May 17, Norton AntiVirus from Symantec began detecting the executable file for the current version of Pegasus Mail for Windows as the "Trjan.Dropper" trojan horse and deleting it. 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."

Your program is sick! Shoot it and put it out of its memory.
