I am having several e-mail newsletter types of mail getting bounced, not consistently. They are things like a sensory integration group (yahoo) or a local "freecycle" listing, sometimes even "Ask the Computer Lady". I use Outlook Express, Windows XP Home, AVG, Spyware Blaster, AdAwareSE, Spybot & Destroy & Spyware Guard. Is there something I need to change on my security?

If there were some consistency in the bouncing, or if you could detect a pattern, then we might be able to advise you with better results. Since this problem seems to be 'off and on' it probably has nothing to do with your computer settings, but to the vagaries of group E-mails and your E-mail provider.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Are the newsletters in question ones that you send or ones that you receive? If the latter, I suspect that it is the server's spam filter that is bouncing them. I've had that happen to me a few times.
