    Each time that I re-boot Outlook Express loses the POP3 setting and
    substitutes loca network.

    Is this a known problem?

    How do I fix it?

    I have already tried re-installing I.E. and Outlook Express.

  2. Yes Andy,
    I'm familiar with that problem.
    At least on a W98SE operating system in a network of 4 computers.
    As long as the workingstations are "on" then there's no problem but once I
    start with a total reset then the complete POP & SMTP addresses are gone and
    changed into
    Also the usernames and paswords are changed by then.
    I hope there is someone who can help you (and me) out of this stinky windows
    (By the way. I know that the troublesmaker is inside Windows Office. But
    where? That's the question.)

    Whenever I used to get an update for my AV program it used to change
    server to local host. I just unchecked the POP3 scan option of AV by
    right clicking in task bar.

    Well it could be a possibillity I will try that out tomorrow. Because the
    problem is in the officecomputer.
    Backhome I use Norton AV (in a network too but ME) without any problems and
    at the I (have to) use Windows 98 SE with Office 97. ;-)) Don't dare to
    laugh at me!!! ;-)) I can't help it mysef either! ;-))

    Money makes the world (sometimes) go round. Yo know.
    Thanks anyway.

  6. Outlook Express doesn't work? Yes, that's a known problem.
    Pegasus mail is free and much better than OE.
