Hello all,

The past few weeks, I have had problems connecting to both the internet & email. Every so often when attempting to connect to t-bird or firefox, I get the message "thunderbird/mozilla is unable to connect to server". Usually it will connect after I "retry" however it has become very annoying.

I am running Windows XP Avira,SAS,Spyware Blaster,MBAM,Spybot,CCleaner. Nothing has been detected from any scan I have run. I have contacted my ISP with no success.

Could this be a firewall issue?? I have the standard windows firewall along with the firewall on my Linksys router enabled.

Any help would be appreciated

thanks!


P.S. Is SAS/MBAM enough ??? do I really need to have Spybot??

Hi,

It could well be firewall related. Try disabling your firewall and see if they can connect to the server.

I would reccomend uninstalling both products and reinstalling them one at a time, i had an issues with FF3 and a quick reinstall worked. :thumbsup:

Go to the "Tools" menu and select "Export...".
Enter a name for the address book, select "LDIF" from the drop-down list, choose where on your computer you want to save the address book, and then click to save the file.
