IP on Outlook Express?? Where is this IP Address, in the server sections?? Are you sure it's not The 127 address is the loopback address for the network card and may be the address for the anti-virus software that uses a virtual machine (localhost) as the delivery point for email before forwarding to Outlook Express.

If this is what is happening, does he still get email?

What is the exact problem and what error messages do you see?

Yes it is Outlook Express, I didn't think of it involving the anti virus...I will check that out when i go back over, Thanks.

The error message we get is unable to locate server or something, And after checking it is 127 not 125
