I use AVG and Outlook Express and I don't use the included email scanner. Its slow and hangs occasionally when its on. I get a frequent trojan laden email (thanks to a "friend" who gave my address to a greeting card thing) and AVG doesn't see it anyway when it comes in. It does see it when I open it. The email scanner seems only effective against attachments and I can scan those manually anyway. I right click them, save them somewhere, go to that location, right click them again and select Scan with AVG.
To turn off the email scanner, double click the AVG icon near the clock to bring up the Control Center, click the Email Scanner section, click Properties and click Disable plugin. The AVG icon will now be grayed out indicating something is not functioning, that being the email scanner.
