My incoming mail server keeps changing from my incoming.verizon.net to 127.0.0.1. I've read a couple of other posts on here and I've written before myself, but there doesn't seem to be any real solution yet. Can someone please help? I have Outlook Express and Windows XP Professional.

Thank you.

Your anti virus programme is the likely candidate

Does it stop you getting mail

Yes it does. I went through this before and was told it has something to do with Spam Killer, but if it causes problems and you're told not to use it, why bother with it?

Which anti virus programme have you got?

Look for e-mail scanning, disable it, change the incoming server details, reboot and it won't change

However, this is not ideal, so you need to look through the help guide for the anti virus programme to see what the solution is, or contact their tech support

I have McAfee software. I really don't want to disable anything and take the chance of getting a virus or anything, though.

Thanks.
