mcafee blocking sent emails

  Newuser2179 16:24 29 Oct 2006

When I attempt to send email mcafee immediatly blocks it saying there is a possible worm in my computer.
Did a full virus and adware scan, tried to contact mcafee via their help page, tried to send an email, but comes up with error 800a00d.
I really am stuck.

I don't know if this will help. (When I had Mcafee - many moons ago), I received the same warning as yourself when I sent consecutive e-mails with identicle subjects.

varied words all failed

Are you sure its blocking or just asking are you sure you want to send it.

I have Mcafee and when I try to send emails to multiple recipients it asks are you sure

What version of Mcafee are you using Newuser2179,like the above mentioned,if you are sending the same email several times Mcafee thinks its a worm and tries to block it.

If you have the the Spamkiller within the Mcafee,try disabling it and try to send.Or try disabling the email scanner and send.The Email scanner may need configuring due to an update.

Thanks everyone but just need a bit more advice.
Yes it was blocking my emails, and I was't sending same email, over and over, it blocked first and I tried sending various other mail.
Need advice on this I have disabled In mcafee "SCAN OUTGOING MAIL", and it sends email but Mcafee keeps saying I am not fully covered, is it really necessary to scan outgoing mai I am sending??

If you are sure your pc is clean Newuser2179 i would not worry to much about outward mail,just the inbound mail is the main concern.

If you have the Mcafee on disc,maybe an uninstall and reboot with a reinstall may cure this problem.Obviously something has been altered with the settings.This may need a little tinkering.

Good luck
