It might be because your outgoing port is being blocked by Mcafee. try disabling your firewall (don't worry its only for a little while) and try to send an e-mail.

Not downloading new emails


You may have to setup your email program settings:

This is what part of mine looks like:

Verizon / Yahoo Mail Server Settings
Outgoing (SMTP)Settings
Description: Verizon/Yahoo
Server Name: outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net
Port:587
User Name: **********
Secure Connection: TLS (if available)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Incoming Server Settings
Server Type: POP Mail Server
Server Name: pop.spamcop.net
port: 110
User Name: *********@spamcop.net
Secure connection: TLS (if available)

You can find these settings on your desktop computer and check to see if they match the laptop's settings.

Hi,
Before jumping into a conclusion that your computer is infected, please check if you have programs like Strongvault, Wajam installed. They will give you popups.
If not use the following tool from McAfee to scan for suspicious files in the computer.

I can receive email on yahoo, but can not forward anything from my email account with yahoo


hey roger,

You will need to check your outgoing smtp settings in yahoo. Below is the information to set this up.
1) Yahoo! Mail Settings (if allowed)

Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

2) Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

Thank You,

Cannot receive any email?


So, not enough information, but I think I can guess your situation.

By not receiving, you MUST be talking about a LOCAL E-Mail CLIENT (Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Windows Mail, Incredimail).

A local clinet connects to the actual mailbox, which is on the domain server.

With all e-mail, it is possible to navigate to a location, like Hotmail, MSN, Gmail, etc. Have you navigated to that location to check for mail? This same location will have the SETTINGS needed for your local clinet.

These settings are not tough, just "French" to many. Some require authentication, some Secure socket layer (like Gmail).

FURTHER, if you are a mobile user, be aware that the OUTGOING SMTP server will not work across internet connections that you typically encounter.

Spam was the cause, but Internet Service Providers (ISPs) became saddled with responsibility for spam moving across their servers. Their response was to force all outgoing mail to go through thier filters, on their servers, to have the ability to monitor and stop spam.
One has to find out what that server is and change the outgoing server, while in that service area. Real annoying. Often a SSL port, like Gmail offers will not be allowed as you travel around.

We can recieve pictures in our email but we cant send them. Is this a problem in our internet service or computor


Most likely your outgoing mail protocal is not set correctly. Your outgoing mail say if you had comcast and were using outlook would be like this:
mail.comcast.net
your outgoing would look like this:
smtp.comcast.net
comcast uses POP3 or "post office protocal version 3"
Not ISP's use POP3 but alot do. Check your settings or call your ISP "internet service provider" to be sure they should be able to resolve your issues. If you are a comcast user and are using outlook this should solve your issue.

The Dell security center should already be in your machine. If not make sure you have the service pack 2. I'm not a big fan of McAfee. You're best bet, since your subscription is current, is going to mcafee.com and useing thier help and support center.
