When I used to have AVG I did, initially, have problems with e-mails.

The answer was to add a couple of AVG files to ZoneAlarm and grant Permission to access the net.

One was something on the lines of avginet.exe but can't recall the second as it's about two years or more ago now.

Started to have problems collecting emails since this morning, Can send OK but will not download.

I wondered what was going on, thanks you might have just hit on the answer, don't need any more grey hair at this time!

I have tried going through the details in the email account and all seemed OK there.

I will try to download a new AVG File in the morning and hope that put's it back to normal.

Im not sure if its turning out to be the server at fault As all my accounts are now troublesome. Avg downloads via proxy server which it says it cant find, it could be having bother ! or my lines intermittant (poor wiring has been a problem for years.as the wind gives em a fair rattling (all overhead lines here)Ive removed 7 reinstalled Avg 7.5 but got no further , so leaving it now till fri night . Catch you all later .

There is a problem with Zone Alarm and AVG

They both have to be up to date

I had this problem a few days ago (with OUTLOOK)
