i use Thunderbird 1.5 as my mail client and i can send out mail easily enough but when i try to get mail the message "an error with the POP3 mail server. Mail POP3.tiscali.co.uk responded" and that is all is on the message. another thing which i think is coneected, i can't download any updates from AVG anti virus and i get the message "update server connection failed"
the only firewall i have on the computer is Windows and the firewall on the Modem/router. i have ruled the router out as the computer in my daughters room can update ok and this is networked wirelessly through the router.
