Bleeping computers looks useful.. I Googled a time out error message while NOT being able to download my emails - and up came this website - and another member with a similar problem. Having recently reinstalled Windows XP in my IBM Thinkpad from factory discs, I then reinstalled favourite programmes, Firefox, AVG etc, but my e-mails just wouldn't download, though I could send them...
While reading the forum on the problem, (and hitting send/receive again in Oulook Express) I spotted Symantic was scanning e-mails.. Hang on, I thought, don't I use AVG for that? Symantic Norton Anti-virus seems to dislike AVG running at the same time - they were both trying to scan my e-mails. I removed Norton - and my e-mail started working immediately.
So thanks BleepingComputers, you were there when I needed inspiration!
I'm surprised this doesn't include a questionaire of what I'm running (XP, on a Thinkpad, with Firefox brouser etc) so I can link up with others.. Ah, Members Profiles.... Later, James.
