I don't think it is smart enough.  I did the two things you said, then directed an e-mail to the Verizon account.  I got the familiar Alert error message and no downloaded message.  For what it's worth, no entry magically appeared on the SSL accounts table.

OK, looks like the proxy is not working properly.  settings to try with the SSL table.
1.  verizon.net  pop3   110   none
2.  incoming.yahoo.verizon.net   pop3   110  none
3.  yahoo.verizon.net   pop3    110   none
and if none of those work I think Avast! will need to take a look at it.  Or maybe another verizon.yahoo user will show up.   ???

Nope, no luck with any of them.

Have you done an Avast! uninstall with their uninstaller yet, along with a reinstall?  That is about the only simple thing left to try.  And use the ssl settings with the yahoo.verizon line removed.

I did the reinstallation.  For some strange reason, the d_mn thing is working now.
While installing I got a long avast information message about one removing SSL/TLS from one of my e-mail accounts.  Too bad I didn't understand it the first time. 

Many thanks.  Your patience has been remarkable.

Congratulations.  Possibly the rerun of the AVG removal actually helped but still left installation problems with Avast!  As far as the SSL/TLS message, you get that if you try to use TLS/SSL directly in the TB settings instead of letting Avast! do it after scanning in the SSL table.  But this account doesn't use it.  In general, all of your TB accounts should be set to 110/none with Avast! and the ones that actually use SSL/TLS show up in the SSL table as port 995.  Let us know if you have other problems.
