My OE is not checking for new emails as set in
Tools/Account/General/Send-Receive. Most of the time, I initiate the
download of incoming emails. Is there a solution to this?

Using Ad-Aware, Avast (which I cannot stop scanning emails); Windows
Firewall is ON; Spyware Blaster; OE 6 (all updates current); XP Pro with all
MS updates.

Thank you.

Tools | Accounts Mail | Properties | General Tab. Is: "Include this
account.........." checked?

yep, thank you, though Bruce. I re-installed AVAST from their website (not
CNET) and all's working fine, now.

YW. You can avoid e-mail scanning in Avast. I believe you have to do it
during installation though.

Choose Custom Installation and under Resident Protection, uncheck: Internet
Mail and Outlook/Exchange.

I got rid of Avast and Windows Defender in lieu if Microsoft Security
Essentials. That said, Avast is fine and use what you are comfortable with.

Microsoft Security Essentials:

Actually you can turn it off at anytime.

Yes, but I believe it is one of the programs that still leaves its hooks in
e-mail scanning even unchecked. AVG was notorious in this respect. Just
unchecking it in the AVG Security Center usually causes a conflict with the
Windows Security Center.

Agree! Being a careful, yet non-professional user, I'm paranoid about my
ports being open w/o me knowing, et al. Thank you!!!!
