    I set up two mail accounts and I have broadband and vista mail can't
    connect. Newsgroups seem to work fine tho.

    Post your error messages and codes or at least the name of your ISP
    so someone can advise you on the set up.

    Also... If you are a Norton or McAfee AV victim give serious
    consideration to replacing them with free Vista compatible
    products such as Avast or AVG because they will bite you
    eventually even if they are not involved in your current problems.

  3. Email scanning should be turned off in any anti-virus. Also exclude EML
    files from the scan. It provides no
    protection not provided by the regular resident protection.
    Besides that, McAfee and Norton are not compatible with Windows Mail and
    should be uninstalled.

    If that doesn't fix it post the exact error message.
