If I go to Outlook Express, tools, accounts, properties, servers. Incoming Mail keeps putting in numbers and it should read pop.supanet.com. I keep changing it but it won't stick ie everytime I switch off the computer and start it again, I have to reset it.

127.0.0.1 ?

Do you have some sort of anti-spam / anti-virus installed? If so, what is it?

jrb1946 I know this one only too well.It is setting the POP3 to 'local host'.

It is related usually to bundled anti-virus and spam filter software.What's in yours?
In the end you might find that un-installing the said package and then re-installing only the anti-virus is the only solution.

If this works then you can gamble on re-introducing the spam spam junk part.

Exactly it_girl,took me months to find out the root of the cause as my link suggests.

Luckily i do not get much spam,and removing the spamkiller from add and remove solved this issue,eventually.

skidzy just for the record regarding McAfee - if it ever strikes back again,then goto the McAfee site and use there own Removal programs.There are something like 4 different removal programs.The main one being Security Centre Removal.
I am currently using McAfee 2007 Suite and it is really good.Lots of extras including a Registry Cleaner.And it is very easy to install,especially compared to the 2006 suite.

Right, got my head around all that - Seems clear enough now what's wrong and how to fix it. So very many thanks diodorus siculus, vog,skidzy & it_girl. The protection software is Mcafee, but there may be others. JRB1946
