I’m using the latest version of CIS and when I start email client (Windows Live Mail 2009) I get the message from the firewall, like I suppose to, asking if I want to allow wlmail.exe to access the Internet. Everything is okay up until here. However, unlike starting any web browser where I get a selection in Predefined Firewall Policies to treat the application as a web browser I don’t get one to treat the application as email client.
The policy for an email client is present in the Predefined Firewall Policies section however it does not show up in the drop down menu when the information pop-up window comes on. I even tried reinstalling CIS and creating another custom predefined policy for email client but it didn’t work. Every other predefined policy shows up in the drop down menu with the exception of email client and any user-made custom policy. I had the same problem with the previous version of CIS and on my both computers (one of them freshly reformatted). What’s also strange is that it did show up only once when I was starting some other application (I don’t remember which one). But it never came up again.
Windows XP Pro SP3 (Using Administrator account)
CIS 3.5.57173.439 (Custom Policy Mode)
Windows Live Mail 2009 (Build 14.0.8050.1202)
Thank you for your time.
