I'm not sure but I think you can't  :'(
avast only works - by now - with pop3/smtp servers accounts. I've heard they are trying - Vlk forgive me! I know it is a lot of work - to change the email detection way of avast  8)

But, can you download your emails with any pop3/smtp client (program)?
If so, you can be protected by avast  ;)

if it's a web-based email...i thought a well-customized standard resident shield should do the trick.. ???

Saying web based may confuse some, for AOL would be a web based for some perhaps, would not work also. Web based meaning, a real email program, not one that is controled and forced fed to you, as AOL is, and other non pop or smtp email clients.

Hi All;  >:(
I was thinking the same thing, Avast such a great program it is, does not seem to scan http mail and, that includes Hotmail.

*One way out is as Technical suggests in his reply, Re:Lycos mail

*Pick up Lycos mail (and Hotmail) via another pop address: yahoo etc..

*The other is finding another antivirus prog, (just as I was getting use to avast).

*That is unless the Avast developers are going to make changes to Avast to scan http mail. :(

Oh, of course, Standard Shield could only catch the virus signatures present in VPS file (database) and to catch at a download file, you must choose to scan 'all' open/create/modified file in the Standard Shield settings.
Did I make myself clear?  8)

The irony there really bugs me.  I've only heard bad things about Mcafee.
