You don't need the Outlook/Exchange provider/plug-in running unless you have either the MS Outlook or MS Exchange email client. Although it is unlikely, having the Internet Mail and Outlook/Exchange providers running may cause conflict.

You only need providers running if you have a need for them IM if you use internet messaging. Unnecessary providers can be terminated, or removed using add remove programs, selset avast antivirus, remove/change, from the new window select change, in the new window you can untick the providers you don't need.

Ensure that your firewall allows ashMaiSv.exe (if running in task manager)

it is running in the task manager--just checked

Sent myself an email as you suggested--went out, but never came back in--recieved that is.
Sorry for the duplication of posts--just a bit over-enthusiastic about solving this---

Also--terminated the providers you mentioned, as I do not use them---thx for that anyway!!
Still no change though:)

Well this at least the outbound connection is working, was web shied enabled when you did this? - if so this confirms that web shield is also working.
Do you mean you got a connection error (if so what) or something else?

If web shield wasn't disabled for the test email disable it and resend.

Have you checked your server POP3 settings in OE (tools, accounts, select account, properties) are correct, pop3.ispdomain.com, etc?

Disabled the web shield for the test--but nothing came in

this is the error message from the server

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'pop.broadband.rogers.com', Server: 'pop.mtmc.phub.net.cable.rogers.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

Same one I always get when the provider--internetmail--is running.

As for the internet settings--they are the same as they ahve always been---had them checked yesterday with my provider just to be sure..

Click on 'Settings' in my signature and increase the MaxConnections value of avast4.ini file [MailScanner] section.
Probably you'll need to 'add' this line to your ini file.
Can you see if it helps?

About conflicts, avast! is compatible with other non-resident scanners: BitDefender free, Antivir (without resident), ClamAV.
Even in some cases, to experienced users, to AVG resident (email resident specially).
