I could not send or receive emails through outlook. The problem was even though I did not have Norton installed, it previously came installed on my new computer. When Norton is uninstalled, it really does not uninstall! Norton has a tool to completely remove it (it will remove any and all of your norton products) but the remains of Norton on my computer would not let me download the removal program!!! So I downloaded the removal program (very small only 600K) onto my other laptop and saved it to removable drive and ran it on the troubled notebook from the memory stick. Now everything works fine! By the way this problem also made it appear to certain programs that I was not online giving errors such as you appear not to be connected to internet!

The removal program is from Norton's website:
