 Multiple id's multiple email servers.  How?

Ok, I got the instructions from the manual on manually setting the avast4.ini file.
 I have a reference from a post on multiple email accounts and multiple SMPT.
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=4987;start=15
In this post it says to :
The only way was to set the incoming server (127.0.0.1) and the username (login#incomingserver) in every account manually in TB!

What exactly am I entering in under users name??

The user # 1 name is :  archer
The # 1 email server is :  flxtek.net
The # 1 SMPT :  flxtek.net

The user # 2 name is :  bowarcher+tiyogi.com  (this is not a typo )
The # 2 email server is :  tiyogi.com
The # 2 SMPT :  tiyogi.com

I know the server name will be set to 127.0.0.1 port 110.

But  what do I put in the username?
# 1 archer#flxtek.net  ???
# 2  bowarcher+tiyogi.com#tiyogi.com

How do I handle 2 different SMPT's?
I did not see anything in the instruction for this.  Or did I miss it?

Gargoyle, the easy way will be:

1. Configure your email accounts to 'not' use avast.
2. Close your email program
3. Start Menu > All programs > avast! antivirus > Mail Protection Wizard
    Follow the instructions.

If you do not succeed:

The user # 1 name will be:  archer
The # 1 email server will be:  flxtek.net (are you sure it's not pop.flxtek.net ?)
The # 1 SMPT will be:  flxtek.net (are you sure it's not smtp.flxtek.net ?)

The user # 2 name will be:  bowarcher+tiyogi.com  (this is not a typo )
The # 2 email server will be:  tiyogi.com
The # 2 SMPT will be:  tiyogi.com

I know the server name will be set to 127.0.0.1 port 110.

But  what do I put in the username?
#1:  archer#flxtek.net
#2:  bowarcher+tiyogi.com#tiyogi.com

Check SMTP authentication
Write there:

#flxtek.net
your password and check for remember

and

#tiyogi.com
your password and check for remember
The best things in life are free.

Hi Technical,

In my orginal post I forgot to state that I am using Thunderbird V 5.0
Quote
The user # 1 name will be:  archer
The # 1 email server will be:  flxtek.net (are you sure it's not pop.flxtek.net ?)
The # 1 SMPT will be:  flxtek.net (are you sure it's not smtp.flxtek.net ?)

No there is not typo there it as stated flxtek.net and the same for the second one tiyogi.com.

Neither of the two use the POP or SMTP in the setting for the mail.

I tryed the Mail wizard and it seems to be pulling in old accounts that I had when I first started using aVast.

In my aVast4.ini there is a Mail scan section :
[MailScanner]
DefaultPopServer=postoffice.worldnet.att.net
DefaultSmtpServer=mailhost.worldnet.att.net
ShowTrayIcon=1
UseDefaultSmtp=0
AutoSetProtection=0


Since I have two different SMTP's ,  what would I put in under DefaultPopServer=???
DefaultSmtpServer=???
