yep timeout...

Try to increase both timeouts (of avast into the Advanced tab of Internet Mail provider settings and of your email account, in Properties of the account, Advanced tab too). You can set both to 600, for instance. If you're on a DSL connection (not dial-up) it shouldn't be necessary a so long timeout anyway...

If this does not help, can you uncheck the Outbound mail scanning?

Do you use any spam killer? Sometimes the spam killer enters in a 'loop' and consume all the timeout. Shutdown it and start it again.

Basicly there is no problem at all. Everything is working like it should. Avast is checking both inbound as well as outbound mail. The 'inbound' part takes care of your system. The 'outbound' part takes care that (if your system gets infected) the malware isn't spread to others but stopped.

But I thought avast was blocking clean outbound mail...  ??? ???
