View Full Version : Outlook express and 'localhost' problem

11-10-2001, 08:18 PM
Please, I am running OE5.5 on Win2k machine, recently upgraded from w982ed. Whenever I start up OE5.5, and check my mail on LAN at work or dial up at home, something changes my username and pop3 server from (should be) 'pop3.paradise.net.nz', username 'mark.sherwood' TO pop3 server 'localhost', and username to 'mark.sherwood/pop3.paradise.net.nz'. If I manually change it back each time I start, it works but reverts on each launch of the application. What am I doing wrong? I had the same problem on my home desktop earlier this year and it went away - I dont know how.

Thanks Heaps

This could have been caused by Norton Antivirus checking your email for viruses.
You could try turning off email checking for a while, then resetting it and see if it works after that, or just turning it off altogether.
