Hi temp003. Re your reply to my posting yesterday about my not being able to send/receive via OE it turned out to be that my Preventon Firewall had notinstalled properly and had caused the OE and Incredimail account settings to change. I asked a computer engineer to look at it and he found it quickly. He uninstalled the firewall and reset the settings and then reinstalled the firewall and all is now well. You weren`t far out when you thought it was the AV causing it. Hopefully this may help someone in the future. He only charged me £15 so that wont break the bank. Regards, Meshuga.
