NcAfee VirusScan 20005 Ver 9.0

  406SV 18:04 06 May 2005

I tried to upgrade Version 6.0 with Version 9.0 (the upgrade version, not the professional version) and found that I can't access my email account.

When I contacted McAfee, they came back with all sorts of talk referencing SpamKiller etc. I told them that I don't have SpamKiller - but they haven't replied to my email, since 01 May. Is there anyone out there who can offer me some help.

I've used System Restore to ensure that I go back to the old version, until the problem is resolved.

Are you using Outlook Express?

What actually happens when you try to access your e-mail account?

Sorry Mattyc-92 - yes I'm using OE

The following message appears every time I try to access my email:

The host '' could not be found. Please verify that you have
entered the server name correctly. Account: '', Server:

Sounds like you have blocked OE from accessing the net...

Try configuring your Firewall to allow OE to access the net

Thanks folks.

I think I'll bite the bullet, take it back to the shop and install AVG. At least it's free.
