In Control Panel: Internet Options: Connections: Dial Up and VPN Settings: "Proxy connection needed" box is being checked each time Eudora 5.1 is used to connect to the internet and check e-mail. According to my grandfather, this is not needed. He has never needed a proxy connection.

What could be causing this problem? :thumbsup:

He is running XP SP1. He uses an anti-virus/anti-spam ISP. He uses the windows firewall. He is running McAfee anti-virus at the local level. He is also running SpySweeper. I don't believe he has any of my standards: AVG, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware SE, Spyware Blaster.

Please advise.

Be Strong And Courageous!

Eudora Support has this to say about proxies. Perhaps the settings are wrong?

Instead you need to configure your proxy server to allow access through ports 110 (POP3) or 143 (IMAP4) for checking mail and 25 (SMTP) for sending mail.
