Managing your Avast email signature settings

If you use an email client (such as Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird), Avast may include an email signature at the bottom of your outgoing emails to let your recipients know that the email has been scanned for malware. This setting is enabled by default.

Disable the Avast email signature for outgoing emails

  1. Open the Avast Antivirus user interface and select MenuSettings.
  2. In the General section, untick Enable Avast email signature.
  3. Click OK to save your preference.

The setting is changed and your outgoing emails will no longer include a note from Avast. You can re-enable this setting at any time.

Customize all Avast signature settings for incoming and outgoing emails

  1. Open the Avast Antivirus user interface and select MenuSettings.
  2. Select Components from the left panel, and click Customize next to Mail Shield.
  3. Select Behavior in the Mail Shield Settings window that appears, then tick/untick the boxes under General according to your preferences (settings related to your outgoing mail are enabled by default).
  4. Click OK to save your changes.

Your preferences are set and will be reflected in future emails that you send or receive.
