View Full Version : 'Gmail' Settings keep changing!

17-12-2006, 03:43 PM
For Email I currently use Outlook Express v6.00.2900.2180, 2004 for Gmail, and Microsoft Outlook 2000 - SP3 for Xtra and Yahoo.
Frequently, I find that the following settings are changed for Gmail:-
A.) The POP3 server from 'pop.gmail.com' to '' and
B.) the Incoming server port number from 995 to 110. Any thoughts as to how to stop this from occuring?

Are u using some kind of anti spam program as well?

It looks like a program is changing it to which is localhost.

'Speedy Gonzales' thanks for your reply. Yes, I use McAfee. What are the possible effects of this?
Would you please explain what 'Localhost' setting is used for.

Localhost (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Localhost)

I don't know what Mcafee has in it, As I don't use it.

Try changing McAfee's ports to Gmail's. If its using in it somewhere.

Or try disabling/quitting Mcafee's for now and see if you get Gmail email.

Are you trying to access Gmail in OE and Outlook, or just OE?

I would just go to the Gmail site and forward Gmail emails to your normal email. It saves u trying to add your Gmail addy to an email program.

It'll come thru to your normal email addy anyway.
