outlook express settings altered

  Newuser2 19:55 13 Aug 2004

Each time I start the computer I'm running XP I find that the settings in outlook express under tools, accounts, pop3, properties, servers incoming mail have changed. from pop3.blueyonder to localhost.
Any ideas why and more importantly how to stop it happening.

have Norton Antivirus - or at least an antivirus that scans incoming mail ? Localhost is the antivirus " vault " in which your mail is checked for a virus before the mail comes through Outlook Express

I have PC-cillin 2002.
So does that mean I can leave the localhost setting?.

want to change it permanently,change it to original settings and disable incoming mail virus check. I wouldn't though - too risky !!

I would leave well alone.
