:tazz: I need help fixing a problem with my incoming mail server.

The server name has somehow been changed to 127.0.0.1
My incoming mail server account provided by my ISP is a
POP.

I receive an error messgage when trying to receive mail.

"No server error 0x800ccc90, error number 0x800ccc92"

I can change the account back to the POP provided by my
ISP and it works fine, until I shut down the computer, then
I get the same error message with the account again changed
to 127.0.0.1

I have run a virus scan with my up to date Mcafee.
No Virus detected .

Also a scan with Spysweeper indicates no problems.

I found the 127.00.1 in the registery and changed it to the correct
account name and again it worked fine until I shut down the computer.

What is changing the account name for the incoming mail server?

If McAfee scans your e-mail then it is likely to change to 127

Turn off McAfee e-mail scanning, click apply to save the change, then change to pop, test the e-mail programme and reboot, see if the e-mail programme has kept the pop details

Thanks> did as insturcted but it didn't fix the problem.
I tried completly disabeling McAfee Virsus Scan and changing
the account- didn't work.

However I suspect McAffee is the problem. I was getting missing Active x control error messages until I uninstalled McAfee and reinstalled.

I have McAfee Virsus Scan, Firewall Plus, Spam Killer, also I had McAfee Privacy Service but have not yet reinstalled it because I didn't like having to enter a pass word and it took much longer for the system to boot up on start up.

Don't particually like McAfee but have it for 3 years.
