I have installed the free version of this program but when active it prevents Outlook Express from sending and receiving e-mails.OE OK if this Firewall is disabled.Does anyone know how to program it to let OE do its proper job? Maybe you can`t in the free version but to upgrade it costs nearly £50-too much for me. Secondly does anyone know of a good (ie better than Windows) Firewall program that won`t cause the OE problems I`m having with PCTools?
In PC Tools, "Applications" , in my case, Microsoft Outlook has a yellow sun in ythe in column and a green one in the out column.Hav you looked in applications? If so what does it say for Outlook Express?
John B, It doesn`t list Outlook Express as such but it does list Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer.Is OE included in either of those? I run XP and the choices are Block,Allow All,Allow Trusted and Ask. Mack1
In PCTools, Applications there is an "add" button. Suggest you locate where OE is in Win Explorer, and add it manually.I think you can find it by a "search" in Win Explorer. Outlook Express is the default eMail application in XP but as I am now on W7 I can't rember where it is filed - somewhwere in programme files I suppose.
