Mailwasher Pro - Socket Error 10022: An invalid argument was supplied

Recommended Posts

I have installed a trial version of latest Emsisoft Internet Security. When launching Mailwasher Pro

(Firetrust), there is an "Alert" in its logfile. There are no further issues, as far as I can see. Things seem to be working properly, as before. However, each time when Mailwasher is checking for new mail, it is showing this flashing 'Alert'-tab.


Looking at the error it reads as follows:




Description: An unknown error has occurred. MailWasher is unable to
determine the cause of this error.

<EVENT><NAME>MWPEXCEPTION</NAME><ID>8e76e58d78734736d331991937157c49</ID><DT>2014-11-11  07:24:47

</DT><MWPEXCEPTION><UID>Exception  3bd82bb836965161ba18e8572569f4e7



</SOURCE><MESSAGE>SocketException  - Socket::Destroy() - shutdown() failed with code 10022: An invalid argument was supplied.





This is new since installing EIS.


I am using EIS using its default settings.


System: Windows 7 x64

1. Protection-Application Rules: have added Mailwasher Pro.exe there (all allowed/all allowed, firewall in/out)

2. Protection-File Guard: have whitelisted all folders containing Mailwasher (Firetrust) stuff there and also additionally the Mailwasher.exe-file.


Error still continues to exist.

My guess is that this is caused: whilst using Norton - there was no problem.

I'd prefer not, to be honest.

The error is new to me, whilst using two  Internet Security suites, there were no issues.


The program that is being launched is Mailwasherpro.exe







I am also in contact with Mailwasher developer as I can see the a 1-line error that is logged in the log file of 1 email account (out of 3)

in backups of previous logfiles there were no errors.


waiting for their feedback.

Am not enirely sure what has been changed in the Firewall, but after tagging "Enable beta updates" (Settings->Update)

I am happy to see that the error has gone.

The error: Mailwasher Pro : 'alert' in the the logfile "Socket Error 10022: An invalid argument was supplied".
