I've just started to have a problem with Outlook Express 6. The only way I can receive email is if I restart my computer.
This just started yesterday. I run XP and McAfee. I haven't changed any settings anywhere. When I hit "Send/Receive" it just says "No New Messages", but when I restart the computer and hit "Send/Receive" then I get my emails.
Any thoughts on this one?

Thats pretty strange, does it show any errors in the send/recieve dialog when you try to get your email?

No, no errors. I'm wondering if it's McAfee? The only way I can get my emails without restarting is to go to my ISP's home page and use webmail.

Have you tried disabling McAfee then checking your email?

Do you have just McAfee anti virus or an internet security package as well?

Thanks TDXkev for your posts and help. All of a sudden, I started receiving emails, have no idea what happened. Strangest thing I ever saw!! Maybe my ISP's mail server was down, who knows!
