Outlook Express - unprompted 'data send' attempt.

Hello everyone.

Whilst on the web this morning,my firewall flashed up the following warning:

'Outlook Express' from your computer wants to send UDP Datagram to 127.0.0.1, Port 1030. Permit or Deny ?

Not knowing what it was, I clicked on Deny.

Can anyone explain what was happening and what did it mean ?

Regards

Zootboy
