Update happened now I can't connect to my POP server. I have opened ports 110,143,25 in the firewall settings and still can't connect. I have disabled the firewall and still can't connect. I have removed the program and can connect just fine. I have had Total Protection 2010 since 12/29/2009 it worked fine. Today came this update and now!!!!!
Have chatted with tech support to no avail >4hrs.
Any Help would be appreciated.Message was edited by: Gigsley on 2/23/10 6:25:09 PM CSTMessage was edited by: Gigsley on 2/23/10 6:42:01 PM CST
Check the date and time, if it is not correct, correct it and restart the computer
What is the type of Operating system ? ( Windows XP / Windows VISTA / Windows 7 )

Are you connected with a router ?
Get back to us with the above details
Along with the above requested information, please let us know what is the version of McAfee products you have installed ?
Open security center and let us know whether it says Am I protected YES or Your computer is secure ?
Also May I know whether do you receive any error message while connecting to your POP server , if possible try to attach a screen shot for the same.

I read your message, fine ! So right now you reinstalled mcafee or it is not there in your computer
I have reinstalled again from download. Only when I removed Mcafee did i recieve mail properly.
I have downloaded again reinstalled and the problem repeats.
Did you have any luck with this problem? Sounds like the same thing I'm having and I can't seem to get any response from anyone
What email client are you using to connect to the POP3 account?
I'm using windows mail....I was using McAfee antivirus before and didn't have any issues.Message was edited by: JBally on 3/31/10 12:21:54 PM CDT
It took quite a bit of doing to fix my problem. McAfee had to be uninstalled and then the registry cleaned out of any traces of McAfee. Then started over with a fresh install this fixed the problem.
If you are uncomfortable with this you can go online with support and they will have you download a program called "go to assist" which will allow them remote control of your computer so that they may do this process for you. This is done at level 2 support which requires a phone call back at a specific time to initiate the above.
Hope this helps, I know it is not what you wanted to hear.
