Perhaps the problem is solved in version 2014.9.0.7 (which is available now)

The Mail shield counter does nothing here too, but if I keep the statistics page open and send and receive an email to myself, I see the two entries appear in the last scanned items.

I'm also using Thunderbird (24.1.0) with incoming connection security SSL/TLS and outgoing None (dictated by my service provider).
Mail Shield settings - All three boxes ticked.
OS Window 7 Pro, 64 bit
Avast 2014.9.0.2007.

Unfortunately not, at least for me

In AvastUI, go to Statistics | Historical data and on the top pull-down, select Mail Shield.  You should be able to see the number of messages scanned.
