Local Host in POP3 Server

A computer in the office running win2k and using OL2000 currently reads incoming server(POP3):localhost.  It is supposed to have our email servers address of our ISP.  So I change it and everything works fine.

When the person logs out and back in again, it goes back to 'localhost'.  We are connected to an NT server, but profiles are not being used and are all stored on the local machine.  I have removed and reinstalled Office 2000 and the same thing happens.  I added a new user to the machine and created a new profile in OL2000.  The same thing happens, when you log back in the POP3 server is changed to 'localhost'

It only happens on this machine, and it just started happening last week.

Any ideas?
TIA

You either have an antivirus package (Norton, PC-cillin) or a personal firewall (zonelabs) that scans pop mail as it is downloaded.  You need to disable these feature in order for the POP3 server setting to stick.
