My AVG antivirus keeps popping up a message box saying that it is mail checking and that something called AutoPOP3: is connecting to, and then a random series of letters ending in telia.com

I looked at telia .com to see and it's just some comunications company.

Does anyone have a clue what this is and what I can do about it?

Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan, nice to see you again.

Do you use Outlook, Outlook Express or another email client? That is the AVG email scanner in operation as your email client checks for and downloads your email. Telia.com is most likely your ISP, your ISP's parent company or the company that handles your ISP's email. You can disable the email scanner in AVG to make that pop up go away but its not a good idea.

Thank you for also answering my particular question. I thought for a moment someone was trying to use my internet connection to dial out somewhere else!!

By the way, can that happen with broadband?

Hi cristo and welcome to BC

You can't dial out unless your computer is attached to a phone line.
