Every few days the mail server settings in MS Outlook will change. The pop3 have the mailbox name appended to the end, and the smtp server will become localhost.

After changing them back to what they should be they will stay like that for a few days.

What might cause this?

Your AntiVirus software is more than likely doing this.  PcCillin is notorious for doing this.  What AV are you using?  Is this affecting your ability to send/receive mail?

If you do have Pc-Cillin, you might try disabling it or exiting out of it, then changing your server settings to what they're supposed to be, then turn the AV back on.
