IBM Thinkpad; Windows XP Pro SP2; Outlook Express 6.00.2900.2180 (sp2); Norton Internet Security 2005
I'm having problems receiving mail from a pop3 server. I looked at the pop3.log file and the connection is made ok, the user is authenticated ok; the server reports the number of messages ok. Outlook Express starts 'receiving mail' and eventually times out.
I have increased server timeout to 3 minutes
I have disabled Norton Internet Security
I can send mail just fine. General internet connectivity is fine.
This only seems to happen when I use my wireless connection. If I plug the pc into the phone jack and dial up, then things seem to work ok. I have another pc on the same wireless network that receives mail just fine using Outlook Express and Outlook. The other machine is Windows XP home edition SP2, but I don't know if that (Pro / Home Edition) is significant.
