Some of my emails are being returned as undelivered by my free AVG outgoing email scanner, although other emails to the same address often do get delivered. I have no trouble receiving mail. An error message comes back with the undelivered mail ie: The e-mail server has responded with the following error: Cannot open SMTP connection to '127.0.0.1' I have checked all my account settings,which seem correct,and have had a look at those in the AVG program under tools/advanced/servers/SMTP, but I am not sure about those though. I use talktalk broadband, and have windows XP,and PC tools firewall installed. I phoned talktalk but they said to contact AVG (but not easy with the free version) I wondered if it would be ok to try to send mail out with the scanner disabled to see if this would work.
I have disabled the AVG outgoing scanner at the advice of AVG's own forum, as their FAQ 1287 states that it is not active by default,as AVG's 'resident scanner' would stop any infected mail going out anyway. Now everything works fine. thanks for all your replies.
