It did not fix the issue. Do you think 0 would be no limit in the registry setting? 500 does not help either. Must not be the issue.

The default value used to be 50, so it looks like Support bumped that figure to see if that worked.

Zero 0 used to be no limit in the old avast5.ini (and earlier days).

It seems that 500 helps but not completely. Do I dare set it to 700?

I contacted support back to see what else may be causing this error. Besides the connection errors, I get trying to send emails with all three programs open. My other mail checker fails and tells me this.

AVAST!
Open AVAST! >> On the left select "Protection" then "Core Shields" >> Click the ON button against Mail Shield to toggle it to OFF >> Select "Stop Indefinitely" in the Question Panel which appears >> Confirm "OK" on the component stop panel which appears AVAST! then may continually advise you that you are not fully protected. To stop this, open AVAST! >> On the left select "Status" >> If a message appears warning about a shield being turned off, click on "Ignore" then close Avast.Open AVAST! >> on the left select Real Time Shields >> Mail Shield >> click the STOP button and from the drop down select Permanently >> click Yes to the popup. \parAVAST! then may continually adivse you that you are not fully protected, to stop this open AVAST! >> Settings >> select Status Bar >> remove the check mark from Mail Shield >> click OK.

I don't see why not, it would be a lessor value than setting it at 0 (zero) no limit.

Do we know 0 would actually be no limit? 0 or 1 is more of an off an on in the registry? 500 is working much better. So I am probably close to what I need.

It used to be, but there really is only one way to confirm, by testing, if less of a problem than 500 it would tend to confirm that.

0 does not work any better than 700. I am starting to wonder if this is even the setting causing the issue?
