outlook express receive at start up

  highside 19:06 08 Oct 2005

Hi, My mail is now longer received at start up, I have to click send/ receive all the time. In tools Send & Receive is set to send & receive at start up. Could it be something to do with McAfee as I dont think I had the problem before changing to McAfee security suite? Also Outlook express is very slow to load when first selected.
I have Tiscali 1MB BB and Win XP + x pack2
Thanks for any help.

I bought a copy of the McAfee security Suite and it gave me no end of grief.

I uninstalled it, and downloaded a free copy of AVG.It also scans emails.
Whilst I had no problems with AVG, I now use, SpyBlaster and Ad-Aware. Have been problem free for several months.

On this site you will find that McAfee and Norton seem to cause quite a few problems being embedded in your PC. I am sure that others will swear by it!

Have you checked the settings in McAfee firewall to make sure it allows outlook express unlimited access to the internet

Another PS.
I mentioned above SpyBlaster, it should read SpywareBlaster - also a free download.
