OutlookEx Email Server

By sgo7 ·
My incoming mail (POP 3) server always changes from what it should be to Local Host and the correct server gets catenated to the account name. Example: mail.attbi.com gets changed to Local Host and the account name gets changed to: name/mail.attbi.com. It always gets the slash too. When this happens the incoming mail fails and I have go into Accounts and change it back. This is getting very aggravating to say the least. Can someone please help me solve this?
Thanks, Steve

Are you using Norton A/V to scan your email ?
If so, that is the reason your mail configuration changes. I had to stop Norton A/V from scanning my POP3 mail.

I tried your idea and stopped PC-Cillin's POP3 mail scanning and it did indeed cure the problem.
Thanks for the tip. It worked and I'm grateful. I never would have guessed the virus scanner was causing the problem.
