I use ISP ABC and for various reasons I need to check emails from my old ISP XYZ. I use Outlook Express for this. My ISP advised me that the POP3 setting is as per my gateway namely 127.0.0.1, and the SMTP, SMTP.ABC.net This worked fine with another well known antivirus program, however switching over to NOD32, when doing a send and receive, I get the following error message: I was advised by my ISP that the message indicates a POP Proxy such as an AV scanner running locally. I have tried disabling EMON (and the whole NOD32 program!) and also tried it on two PC's at different locations with the same results. All firewalls have also been disabled as well. How can I get around this please Many thanks in advance.
