    verify your computer is connected to the Internet, McAfee recommends that you
    resend those messages from your e-mail program. ?????? What I am connected
    the the internet. Please help have been working on this for 3 days. Finally

  2. McAfee has no business messing with your emails.
    Windows Mail is not compatible with most McAfee and Norton
    security programs. Those will need to be uninstalled, not just

    After uninstalling your non-compatible antivirus, download
    and install a more compatible antivirus like the free Avast:

    Even compatible antivirus programs will need to have their
    email scanning option turned off. For more on this topic see

    No. You only need to disable the email integration feature(email scanning of incoming and outgoing emails)

  5. Depends on what you mean by "disable." All antivirus programs
    need to have their email scanning function turned off permanently,
    but do not disable the 'resident' or real-time function, which is the
    main purpose for having an antivirus.

    For many antivirus programs, but not most of those from Norton or McAfee,
    or a recent one from Trend, just doing a custom install that tell it to
    leave out
    the part that scans email is enough. For some, even just telling them to
    disable email scanning is enough.
