Hi all, I ran the TCP Inspector utility on TDS3, in the past it has always shown all ports checked as "failed" however today it shows ports 25 (SMTP) and 110 (POP) as "connected". I know that these ports are associated with my e mail, but why are they "connected" now, they were not before? is it because I have decided to leave Outlook Express on my computer since I re -installed? (I never used it before because of its bad reputation for e mail virus etc.) I did an online check at "Shields Up" and the check showed that all my ports were "stealth" and that ports 25 and 110 were not open. I am now "confused". am I at risk?
