    Open the Norton Anti Virus window, and click the Options button in the upper part of the window. It has an e-mail section.

    Note: have you completely disabled or uninstalled AVG? I don't think it is a good idea to have TWO anti-virus programs active.

    Two antivirus programs active at the same time leads to conflicts, because both will try to intervene when you are opening or downloading files, etc.
