Incoming server address changes to "localhost" - problem

My pop server address frequently changes to local host.
And, the incoming server address is then appended to the User Name -
preceeded with a "/"

Anyone have any idea why this happens?
Unfortunately it has happened on my laptop, desktop, and my wife's computer.
This even happens with a fresh image (O/S and apps re-installed, with new
mail file).

I've experienced it with Windows ME, 2000, XP home and XP Pro.
Also with Office 2000 and now with Office XP.

If I remember correctly (it's been a long time) the only constant is the
fact that I have used a gateway. Used to be a Linux host, but now a
satelitte modem.

Your thoughts are greatly appreciated!
Glenn

This is being caused either by an anti-virus program or an anti-spam
program. Check the settings on those. Outlook is not changing your settings.

Thanks... I'll try this. For anyone else with this problem and who has
PC-Cillin, Trend Micro suggests making sure real-time scan is on.

server localhost is not responding 09-26-03
I'm trying to install CRM server to evaluate for my company. This isn't a production environment, so I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get this working.

Incoming server changes to localhost
My incoming mail server address automatically changes to "localhost" every time I shut down Outlook. Although the correct domain is appended to the login name, I must replace localhost with the correct domain name to successfully receive e-mail. Thank you for any help you can give. You have a 3rd party tool (antivirus, antispam, .etc) installed that protects your POP3 account. You would need to disable that feature in order to get the settings to stick. /neo ps - localhost is another name for your pc. "No Spam" <anonymous@discussions.microsoft.com> wrote i...

Outlook CRM uses localhost:5555 even when online??
CRM 3.0 install, with a mix of Outlook desktop and laptop installs. While investigating some reported performance issues, we've discovered that the Outlook Laptop client uses the local URL (localhost:5555) even when online. Is this working as designed? I suppose there is a data logic layer that decides whether it is online or offline, and gets the data from the appropriate location, but this means that all the ASP.Net page logic is happening locally, putting a much higher demand on the local machine than using the web client alone. It also has implications for how I deploy the CRM...

Outlook show localhost for server requires password now
Outlook keeps changing pop3 address to local host and now requires me to supply password to retrieve mail every time it quiries server. This seems to be a recent change and I am unable to change this. I have always been able to leave email on in the background, now the password popup interferes with other activities. Does anyone have a solution to this? I'm going to guess that you recently installed some kind of anti-virus e-mail scanner like Symantec? If so, that's normal - though it should have a way to save the password. Which version of Outlook are you using and did you, i...

Hi, We have installed MS-CRM, it works perfectly fine when I access it using Localhost. However I am unable to access it using a IP address. How do I solve this problem. Regards, Paritosh Shah Skelta Workflow .NET (www.skelta.com) Did you install the CRM Website in its own virtual directory, or did you let the installation program overwrite the default website? The preferred method is to create a separate virtual website before you install CRM and specify this website to be the CRM site.

Server Address in E-Mail Account Replaced by Localhost
I have been seeing a recurring error involving my e-mail accounts in Outlook 2002. Every so often the "Incoming Mail Server" stored for each of my six accounts is replaced with the word "localhost" and the server name is tacked on in the "User Name" field as follows "{user name}/ {server name}. The "Outgoing Mail Server" information is unaffected.

POP server always changes to localhost
Hello, My outlook is having a wierd issue. I have three POP3 accounts set up to check email in Outlook. After some point in time, all three will stop functioning because in the E-mail accounts settings dialog my incoming mail server will get changed to localhost, and it fails to log in to box to pull my mail. It appends the POP3 server name to my user name which seems odd. So, to summarize, my Incoming mail server (POP3) field changes from it's usual value (something like mail.server.com) to localhost, and my mail server gets appended to my user name (something like username...
