Open AVG control centre,right click Email scanner
select properties, on the plugin tab select properties, select servers tab if POP3: is not there add it, highlight it so it becomes active click OK
and try again...

If you use ZoneAlarm you may need to add avgnet.exe and avginet.exe from the AVG folder to ZA's permissions.

Forgot, as you close the boxes you may need to click apply somewhere along the line..
