pop server

  User-637845DF-0B9F-46E2-90B7AABEC7262D6D 18:18 26 Apr 2003

Having a problem with outlook express on winxp pro. Every time I log in and try to access my mail my incoming pop3 server reverts to localhost, and my original server (tiscali) is added to my account name???. Once I have changed these back to original settings everything is fine. When I log off it seems to default back to local host.??? This also happens to other users settings.

Any ideas?

find that " Local host " is your anti-virus email scanner. I know on my system ( with Norton Antivirus ) it is also localhost. : }

Any ideas on how to prevent it defaulting to localhost. ie change settings in anti virus software.??

disabling your antivirus email checker - I would not recommend it though !!!!!!

" Localhost " is like a " box " where the email is checked for virii and other nasties before it is let through to your inbox. That is it in very simple terms.
