Setup the mail protection manually. Read Avast's manual on how to do it or do a little search on this board. It is explaind in many threads.

The server address for both POP and SMTP should be set to
The POP server name set to: (use the actual username and ISP info)
and... SMTP server name to:

You can go into the Help file within the Avast Scanner and look up Manual configuration.  It will take you through it step by step.  It is not hard to do.

Check the avast help file for Setting up mail Protection. Switch of your email client and run the Mail Protection Wizard - Or you can set it up manually.

Or see this thread for further information and advice User's FAQ - Mail Protection.

I configured the email service manually but I still get the unable to log in message, together with the

"Cannot connect to IMAP server, gethostbyname error 11004" and

"Login to server failed"

This only happens with Netscape mail. The rest of my mail providers have no problem, on Netscape 7.1. Does anyone else have this problem? The forum is too vast to search for me....  :'(
