Maybe this can help...

Q: avast! 4 appears to change my POP3 and SMPT settings to and the names of my e-mail accounts are also modified, so I cannot send any messages. Why is this?

A: avast! needs to change those settings, otherwise it couldn´t scan your e-mail messages. But it shouldn´t cause any problems with sending or receiving messages. If you have problems, however, follow these steps:

1. Close Outlook Express.
2. Start Mail Protection Wizard and select "Automatically remove protection from all my accounts.
3. Start Outlook Express.
4. In Outlook Express, check the server addresses and user name. If you don´t know the appropriate values, ask your Internet Service Provider.
5. Close Outlook Express (very important!!!).
6. Start Mail Protection Wizard again.
7. Select "Set up the protection manually".
8. Select "I don´t use MS Outlook..."
9. Follow the instructions.
10. At the end you can start Outlook Express again. The addresses of POP and SMTP servers will be changed and your login name modified, but it will work.
Right from the Avast site.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!
