Norton Internet Security Blocking Outlook Express email !!! argh!

Well this is the third program its blocked for no obvious reason!

I have worked out via a painstaking amount of deduction that Norton Internet Security is 2005 is blocking any connections to O E via it's firewall! I've set (in programs) Permit Access to Permit all and Catogery to General with no result! SO i tried just email setting- no result!

Any ideas short of uninstalling N I S and replacing it with Zone Alarm Pro?

Ive sorted it now- thanks anyway.

I removed all the proticols that NIS was using for OE (again). Replaced it manualy. Turned off compy Rebooted Fixed it.

I must have done somthing in a differnt order or somthing as I tried that before wit no success... computers can suck!

Uninstall it and don't replace it. If you're using XP then turn on the built in firewall and make sure SP2 is installed. Don't use Internet Explorer, use an alternative.

But you will not have outbound protection with XPuke's firewall. Install Zonealarm or Kerio, both free.
