You're on the avast Settings...
You must start the On-line protection window: LEFT click the 'a' blue icon.
Choose Internet Mail provider.
Click on Customize
Go to Advanced tab...

I was lost because I thought this option was in the Program Settings. Left clicking the A blue icon displayed the avast! On-Access Scanner dialog. Then I add to click the Details button to find the Internet Mail tab.

Thanks I was able to set the Timeout for Internet communication to 600, I will try 0 later if the Connection timeout dialog keeps popping up.

Just a suggestion but I think you should rename the Details button to Advanced (Settings).

So I set the timeout to 0 and it worked for some days... Today I tried to check my mail using my anti-spam software and got the following error message :

Failed connecting to POP3 source!

concurrent connections limit in avast exceeeded

I set the timeout back to 600 and about 15 timeout windows popped up ! I said no to each of them and now I don't know what to do. Searching for concurrent connections topics I found four topics but none of them give a clear solution : and

Note that I use Sygate Personal Firewall as a firewall, ChoiceMail One as an anti-spam tool and Outlook as a mail client. However these softwares have been installed since 2 to 3 years now and since I upgraded to Avast! 4.5... I got into trouble : timeout, not I can't receive my mails.

What should I do ?

Is there a program name and server address in the timeout message ?
