In general, Avast shouldn't mess with email at all.
When disabled, it turned off Dynamic Signature updates and real time scanning so they have been collecting my data for as long as I have been using it.

I am an avast user - if I set up an account using your server and Thunderbird - it connects every time and fails immediately to login, but then that's because I do not have a valid account on the server.

But your instructions are enough to get us Free users to the right setting.
My only beef with Mozilla is that 65 broke my chrome. However, a good number of folks would just prefer to never go there for fear of permanently messing something up and then not being able to find their way back to fix it, hence the question s posed above.
