"Socket Error: 10013, Port: 110, Protocol: POP.An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions"

Wife loves this email program, but for last 4 days have been getting the above quote and will not fetch mail After many hunts on forums found that if I turn off mcaffee firewall, mail came thru
Anyone know a fix for this as do not like turning off firewall.
Running Win 7

Bite the bullet & ditch that program. :badpc: :badpc: :badpc:
You now have a good excuse to stop using it.

You will have some pain trying to import/export email & contact to another program

Also uninstall McAfee COMPLETELY. Win7 firewall is good enough. Get Nod32 or MSSE instead.
DO NOT Give McAfee your credit card details for updates without reading all the fine print first

should you trust a AV company that cant be trusted with your credit card details , as has been fined for its dodgy practices ??

Get rid of Mcafee it causes a lot pf probs. And install something better. Or use windows firewall. Its good enough

I had a friend using Incredimail with Zone Alarm Firewall.

We had to configure Zone Alarm to accept Incredimail.

I went to Incredimails help site and there was a page on Zone Alarm, I imagine they will have some settings for McAffee.

But I would not use Incredimail (its bloated pretty software)
Nor would I use McAfee

You could try the thunderbird e-mail client as an alternative, but if it's all working and the wife is happy probably not worth the trouble. My sister uses incredimail for the emoticons and backgrounds etc but I couldn't be bothered with it myself.
