Changes to e-mail account not saved

Everytime I open Outlook I have to change the Incoming 
Server Name (POP3) and Username to be able to send and 
receive mail from my ATT e-mail account.  
Why dosen't it save the settings for the next time I 
launch Explorer?  
Or where are the "default" or "master" seeting coming 
from that are overriding the settings I want so I can 
change them?

If they are being changed to localhost, then uncheck the option to use the
AV mail scanning.  it could also be your firewall - check its settings.

Your anti-virus (AV) program is doing this.  See if there's an update to it
that fixes the problem.

Hi,

OK.  If I click off the AV PC-Cillian "POP3 Mail Scan"=20
and "Splash" every thing works just fine. I've sent an e-
mail to PC-Cillian asking why they are not integrated =20
with Outlook 2002.  Any suggestions on better AV=20
software?  Thank you very much.

Saving outgoing mail on IMAP server
Hello. I'm using Outlook 2003, SP2 I have several mail accounts on IMAP mail servers, all configured in Outlook. I want to save outgoing emails on the IMAP servers instead of in the local pst file.
