I am sorry you continue to have problems.
Personally, there are no circumstances under which I would have Avast products on any of my computers , however, the choice is yours; though I do appreciate that for many ‘Free’ is an attraction, however, there is no such thing as free meal.
Avast doesn’t only cause problems with email!
Avast Collects and Sells Your Browsing History!
By default, Avast collects your web browsing activity and offers it to marketeers through their subsidiary named Jumpshot.
Companies who pay Avast/Jumpshot can view full “clickstream data” to see what Avast users are doing online.
The data collected is so granular that Jumpshot clients can view the individual clicks that Avast users are making on their browsing sessions, including the time right down to the millisecond.
The collected data is linked to a person’s name, email and or IP address. Each user history is assigned to an identifier called the device ID, which persists unless the user uninstalls the Avast antivirus product.
Not that I have anything to hide, I simply have very strong opinions about this sort of activity and why I take this stance about my personal computers and company systems.
Further that my company could not offer the security that we do to our government, banking, insurance and blue chip clients, and potentially lose their trust.
As an alternative Microsoft’s Windows Defender, which is integrated into all versions of Windows 10, and of course is free. Microsoft’s antivirus doesn’t have an agenda beyond keeping antivirus off your computer.
It doesn’t track your web browsing!
I combine this with Malwarebytes: https://www.malwarebytes.com
Mailwasher Pro world leading anti-spam software together with HideAway VPN both from: https://www.firetrust.com
I/we have never had any virus etc problems plus eMC works perfectly for me on all my computers, MacOS & Windows.
