    Hi sheba53, welcome to Wilders.

    Not correct. NOD32 does not effect Outlook Express like this at all, and I have installed it on over 1000 machines.


    Correct.


    127.0.0.1 is an internal address for Windows, typically used by your Host File.


    I would tend to say absolute rubbish, and in relation to NOD32, not possible. It sounds more like a support tech that doesn’t know what the answer is so they just tell you that load of baloney :mad:

    Could you please open up your Hosts File in Notepad and copy the contents here.

    Cheers :D

    Some email scanners work like local proxies - they receive email and then pass it further to your mail client. These proxies operate at localhost (127.0.0.1). NOD32 does not employ such a local proxy, only if you still have the already discontinued NOD32 1.0 version installed which inlcuded POP3scanner working just like this. If you see a white-green icon labeled CC by the clock, you must be using NOD32 2.x which doesn't act like a local proxy so there must be another program acting like this installed.

    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    127.0.0.1 localhost

    this means nothing to me but it was in note pad hostso_Oo_O?

    Yep, antispam programs usually work as local proxies.

    Bingo, the answer will be with how that piece of software operates with Outlook Express.

    Cheers :D

    PS: Your Hosts File is normal.

    Thank you Blackspear, I have just removed Lash back Spam but it did not help so I will shut down my pc and start again and see if that works. I should be so lucky. :)

    I would suggest a simpler method of handling your junk mail, download and install Mozilla Thunderbird from www.mozilla.com it has a very powerful junk mail filter within it, and you will find it is as simple to use as Outlook Express.

    Cheers :D
