This is similar (or maybe the same) as the problem that "madcamc4" had a few
days ago and that "bobmad" addressed.

I am running XP Home. I use either Netscape 7.2 or Mozilla Thunderbird for
email. I have Verizon DSL and I use Yahoo-Verizon email.

My Sever Settings are: POP Mail Server: incoming.yahoo.verizon.net; Port =
110. I leave messages on the server until I delete them, and I usually set this to
automatically download new messages.
The outgoing server is: outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net. I do NOT use TLS or SSL; I
do not use a secure connection.

I have both Norton System Works (therefore Norton Anti-virus) and AVG
Anti-Spyware 7.5, but not AVG anti-virus. I have had these both on my machine
for over a year and never have had a problem with email. But perhaps in a recent
update something was added to one of them to cause this problem??

When someone first boot ups and accesses their email, all is OK. However, if that
person logs off, then the next user has the problem. The "existing" emails are
available, but if one clicks on get messages, or if the email is set up to
automatically load new messages, then we get the following Alert error:

"Could not connect to server incoming.yahoo.verizon.net; the
connection was refused."

Any suggestions?
