    OE 6 keeps switching my incoming mail server from pop-mail to localhost
    and adds /pop-mail to my account name. I have to reset my accounts manually. Tried re-installing and re-creating all 3 accounts- no go.
    I am using OE 6.00.2800.1123 on Windows ME 4.90.3000. What gives?

    Some AV's will do this. Do you have Norton installed?

    As dtugg said it's almost undoubtedly you AV...Disable Email scanning ONLY..NOT you resident virus scanner..Ive had people disable their whole Virus system 'cuz of this; so I've made it a point to be clearer on this..

    Thanks for the help. I am using PC-Cillin from Trend Micro. Should I try
    them for a patch/fix?
