I am having a problem with my email.Often it won't "connect" unless I reboot.Most of the time I receive messages ok but when I try to send them it won't "connect" and gives me the "timed out "message.It will also say the "program" isn't responding.I know this is a broad question but anybody got any suggestions?How do I know if my Outlook has a virus?Maybe that is the problem?Thanks for any help.

Has it ever worked or is this your initial setup? Often times a firewall and/or anti-virus will cause this type of a problem. I would recomend disabling your security software and attempting to send an e-mail. If it works then some tweaking is going to be needed for your security. If that does not work then please provide some more info about your computer(which OS is it running, any SP's?) and how it connects to the internet(i.e. through a router & a cable modem), thanks.

Iíve actually had this problem myself. The root of the problem was Norton Anti
Virus. To overcome it, disable incoming and outgoing e-mail scanning.
