    Mail.app and kernel panics

    Look out! Many antivirus (Avast, Sophos Enterprise and Avira reported so far) have critical bug, causing kernel panic after opening Mail.app. It can be fixed by disabling file system/e-mail shields, or uninstalling antivirus. Is there any antivirus working with 10.13?
