Office Outlook 2003 Resets Mail Server & Username

  TedoDude 20:41 11 May 2005

After setting up all the fields required to download mail from my mail server, I can successfully connect and download my mail.

However, when I shutdown the computer (not standby / hibernate), Outlook (2003) decides to change my incoming mail server to localhost, and my username to my real username, a slash & then my outgoing mail server.

It didn't do this when I first installed it, but has started to do so now. After a long time of it this is really frustrating. My Office & Windows Updates are up to date.

Couldn't find anything on KB or the office website. Any ideas?

Do you have an anti virus program set to check your mail?

  TedoDude 20:49 11 May 2005

Yes, AVG Antivirus.

That is likely the problem then. Disable the email checking and see if it continues to happen when you shutdown / restart.

Is disabled, will let know here if works / not. Thanks.

No joy I am afraid. Disabled Automatic E-Mail Scanner and when booted up earlier today the settings were reset again... any other suggestions?

After looking this doesn't seem to affect my Outlook Express settings... even though I don't use it.

Nothing else scans e-mails.

(why does this question keep disappearing from the home pages, and i have to keep searching for? Surely there has not been so many threads that it disappears)

To answer your last question, it keeps disappearing because there are a lot of questions being posted. Now, at 21.34, this page only has the last 3 hours worth of postings.

To find yours, simply click on the link "view your postings" at the top.
