Hmmm, look like the Avast has found trojan through home-network! on one of our apple-device!! turned off all our laptops, ipads, iphones, ipods and result: no mailwares found!
Is it a possible?

Yes, Avast scans everything that is accessed. If you access a file on a mounted network disk, than it is scanned as well. (For on-demand scans there is a option to disable it)
