McAfee firewall, Outlook Express6 clash

  DouglasR 22:59 16 May 2003

I'm sorry if someone has answered my question before, but...

I run WinXP Home on a PC with all the new Microsoft security patches installed. I also have McAfee's latest free firewall. I "allowed" all legitimate access to OE6 by the firewall -- but every time I use email, I am asked whether I want to do this. In simpler terms, it's as if I'm using OE6 for the first time.

Does anyone know how I can stop this happening?

i dont use mcafee either but if you look in the options there may be rules or blocked applications that can be configured hare.

outlook or outlook express will have to set up seperately

Very many thanks to all who took the trouble to respond; I've fixed the problem now.
