firewalls and in-bound e-mail

Hey all! This is Crespo here. As a newbie, i'm always encountering new problems. I've got Norton Internet Security 20007 ready to instal when my anti-virus runs out. Someone at work told me that the Norton firewall that is part of the 2007 package is a 2-way firewall. And as such it could block in-coming e-mails from servers such as aol.com.
My friend is currently in the USA and we email constantly each other several times during the week. Yes i know we phone! but we like to exchange funny pictures and messages. It's real important we keep in touch during this enforced separation!
Will this firewall block my e-mails going out or hers coming in? As always, any help will be v. appreciated. Cheers.C.

Not if it is configured properly.
