Orange email problem?

Is anybody having problems with the Orange email server. When I attempt to download my email [with outlook express] I get the following message.

The server responded with an error. Account: 'pop3.freeserve.com', Server: 'pop3.freeserve.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR AVG POP3 Proxy Server: Cannot connect to the mail server!', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

The only thing that has changed since I was last able to download email is that I have upgraded from AVG7.1 free to AVG7.5 free.

That shouldn't have altered anything, I am with orange, formerly wanadoo, formerly freeserve, and had no problems after upgrading to AVG 7.5.
Have you checked your account settings to make sure nothing has been altered? Is your firewall blocking it?

Thanks it was a change in the firewall settings, I can only assume AVG caused this during the upgrade [AVG email scanner Access had been changed to block].
