I'm not sure but, did you run Mail Protection Wizard after avast installation?
You can reach it by Start Menu > avast antivirus

You can choose the second option (not Outlook/Exchange) and all your email accounts could be configurated to use avast automatically (even those ones created in the future).

Did you use a firewall?  ;)
