In Avast, E-mail protection consists of two independent modules; first, there is a generic scanner working on the SMTP/POP3/IMAP4 protocol level. It is capable of protecting any existing e-mail client that uses these protocols. Second, there is a special plugin for MS Outlook only; it is completely transparent, requiring no special settings.

Avast4 will be coming out with a newer version which can be set to scan more than one SMTP SERVER address, but for now it can only scan one.  Thus, no matter how many POP3 mail accounts you have from the same server, Avast takes care of it.  You can search this forum for more information on how to configure Avast for multiple POPs, but for now.....you will have to be content with scanning only one SMTP.
Look for the new version coming soon!

Good Luck ;D

techie is correct...
Just one SMTP server could be scanned.
Wait for a new avast version...  :'(
