Microsoft Outlook 2003 & Norton Internet Security 2005?
Posted on 2004-10-14
Howdy all. Is there any known issue using Outlook 2003 with Norton Interenet Security 2005?
I've attemped to load Norton several times on a XP Pro with SP2 loaded. Initially it works fine, but within one day all email will be blocked. I get a "server not responding" error. I know it's something local on the machine, because I can use a different computer to access the email. And as soon as I uninstall Norton, the mail works again.
I checked the internet and the Symantec website. Symantec is NO help. Not even email support, all they have is an on-line website that verifies all your files are up to date. On the web I found that if you uninstall and reinstall, it should clear up the problem. No luck.
I have installed Norton when the Windows firewall was turned on, and installed Norton once with it turned off. Made no difference, got the same results. I've gone into the firewall settings and deleted all the programs that it logged as accessing the internet, to make it "re-recoginze" Outlook. No luck. I even tried to use Outlook Express 6 with the same results.
I'm not a computer novice, but this has me stumped. And I'm morally against paying for tech support for a program that I all ready paid for!
