Zone Alarm Free, problem??

  badgery 08:17 03 Jul 04

Yesterday I updated Zone Alarm, in response to their contact, but am now finding some difficulties accessing some sites. I have to switch ZA off to get into 'Mailwasher' and Tiscali mail also seems to be refusing me!
Anyone else have any problems with this - or any help out there?
The ZA update was 5.0.590.043

There have been many problems experienced by people that have updated ZA to version 5. You need to uninstall ZA and install an earlier version.

ZA version 4.5 is available to download from the Computeractive web site. Or, if you have any free CD's from computer magazines you will probably find an earlier version on one of them.

Thanks, accordian, will do that.

and accesses the mail bit at Tiscali yesterday with no problems.

If you post a link that you can't get in to I will try it.

I have ZA 5.0.590.015 (upgrade from V4.5 from launch) and it works exactly as before.

Begining to think the problem may be with the ISP (lineone - now tiscali).
Tried entering mailbox using Tiscali site, but getting 'page not available'.
Will keep trying for a while in case the problem is there.

Just shut down ZA and still got the same problem!!
Tiscali/lineone cannot be accessed thru either IE6, Mailwasher or Tiscali website. I can get other mail from different ISP's with IE6, normally - so it must be Tiscali/lineone??

Further to the 'problem':-

I uninstalled the 'new' 5.0 ZA Free and reinstalled the 4.5 and all went well.
Last night, I decided to put the 5.0 back and this morning I am back to problems! Mailwasher is erratic in connecting (in other words it isn't!!), as is Tiscali/lineone mail. BTconnect mail and Tesco mail both come in OK.
When I try to collect the tiscali/lineone mail using the Tiscali website I get a message saying my computer is not allowing cookies, and 'page not available'!

So I am now convinced that something in the new ZA 5.0 is unhappy(?), and will go back to 4.5 again.
Would be interested to know if any other similar 'happenings' are occurring out there??

I use Norton Personal Firewall and it has to be disabled everytime to access the Tiscal web based email.

Thanks billgates - thought I was going bonkers with this. Did suspect Tiscali, but the coincidence of changing the ZA threw me.

  Stuartli 09:08 06 Jul 04

I use Tiscali and have no problems accessing the website even with, as I stated earlier, having installed ZA 5.

However, because I Block or Prompt Third Party cookies I normally cannot check e-mails on the web server, only in Outlook Express. There are one or two cookies that Tiscali uses that I don't particularly want on my system..:-)
