Hi, folks. I've been helping an elderly client of mine--80yrs+--set up and maintain her new computer. The computer has a Duron processor, win98se, netscape 4.79, 128Mb ram, Ontrack system works, pccillin. This is the problem: Her email smtp server works fine, but the pop3 server settings keep being reset to localhost whenever the computer is turned off completely. This means she can send email without problems; she just cannot receive email until the pop settings are reset. I have set the pop settings in netscape, and IE5. I searched the registry for localhost to make sure the settings pointed to the right place. I'm not at her machine at this moment, but looking at my own, I can't see what else to check. I've found no settings (on my machine) for the pop server in win.ini or system.ini. Hidden somewhere there must be a setting that always changes the pop server when the computer is turned off. Any ideas? I should say that her computer had been working fine until a family member came from overseas and used it. My client could give no further info.
