It looks like I'll drop my Avast Anti-Virus from my 4 machines and my clients machines.  They forced an upgrade on me.  When I sat down in front of my machine on which I had the Outlook 2010 problems, it was asking to reboot to complete an upgrade to Avast 2015 version 10.2.2218.  I did the reboot and surprisingly my Outlook 2010 still works.  I simply find the forced upgrade unacceptable.  A company does not have the right to force there upgrades or configuration changes on me.  This is very simply intolerable.  What would they have to say if the upgrade broke Outlook 2010 on me.  I can't trust Avast.  Goodbye.

If that's the case, then it's a sad state of affairs for Avast that they will upgrade my software to a version that has been shown to cause me problems without my permission.  I installed every Avast 2015 version Avast has releasesed and they all had the same problem with Outlook 2010 until I went back to the earlier version of Avast 2014 where outlook finally worked.  Avast circumvented all of my efforts to use their product.

As I said, you did gave avast permission.

There are differences between avast 2014 and 2015.
Not only when it comes to handling/scanning the mail, but other things as well.

I have helped many peoples with the "mail problem", and not only with Outlook.
All had their mail client setup incorrectly.

Have you checked if the root certificate was correctly added to the trusted certificate store. ?
