I am running Norton Internet Security 2003 on XP Home. Both Windows and NIS are up-to-date.

When I send mail through Outlook Express the system still notifies me that Norton is scanning my outgoing Mail even though I have disabled it in the Options. I then get a time-out error and cannot send emails.

Help Please.

Snakey: Just a suggestion, select Start, Search, All files and folders, All or part of file name,...Write norton and click search.

Look for duplicate entries in the listing.

Norton2003 was a nuisance with my outgoing OE mail until I disabled it in the norton options.

Check what your smtp servers are - they should be those of the ISP you are connected via.

Open NIS. Go to Options -> Norton Antivirus -> Email. Click on Email -> Advanced. Uncheck the 'Display progress indicator...' box. (At the same time make sure the 'Protect against timeouts' box is checked.). Press OK. Now check to see if this problem recurs.

If the above doesn't work open NIS again. Go to Options -> Internet security -> Email. Uncheck the 'Progress indicator' box. Press OK & recheck to see how things behave.

Also see -click here - the error message may not be exactly the same as you're experiencing but it contains some t'shooting tips if you're unable to send emails. And - click here - to t'shoot problems when sending & scanning is enabled.
