I have a problem with OE. Each time I log on and check for mail, I don't receive any, even though I know some has been sent to my inbox. A way around this is to go into Tools and Accounts and remove my Account Settings and then add them again. Then the email comes through. I have tried disabling McAfee Spamkiller and this still does not resolve the issue. Having to remove and add the settings each time I log on is a pain of course.....any ideas how to resolve this?
Thanks in anticipation.

Send and receive is fine once i have reset the account settings. McAfee Firewall has never caused problems before. Is it possible that online updates have caused an unwanted problem? I am of course reluctant to disable it.

when you look at the account settings are they set up correctly and you just re-enter everything
are the settings 127.0.0.1
these where used on older versions nav, avg, avast etc virus scanners
