Scanning email just slows down your computer. All you need running is the 'realtime / on-access / resident' scanner, whatever it is called.

Its probably got IMAP server on it, which you have to manually change to POP server, I had same problem and got the help from the Thunderbird website to change it so that I could receive and send mail.

thanks golden willow, that is not the problem worked out changing from imap to pop, Its the avast email scanner that will not allow email to receive, turn it off perfect.
