Windows October Updates causing E-mail Problems?

    I'm using IE on Windows XP (SP1) platform. After installing the recent
    Windows updates as well as Norton Anti-virus updates, I've been unable to
    retrieve and send e-mails from my main e-mail account. However, I'm able to
    surf the net and use my free e-mail accounts. My ISP (Sprint / Rogers) tells
    me it's not a connectivity issue; my connectivity settings are normal and
    they're not having server problems. There's an update, MS Windows and/or
    Norton, that's causing this.

    I uninstalled the Norton WMI updates, rebooted, and tried to send an e-mail,
    thinking this may have been the culprit...still can't send/retrieve e-mails.
    When I ran Liveupdate, it didn't pick up the need to update WMI ( I had
    previously uninstalled it).

    Has anyone had any e-mail problems after the recent Windows updates? Any
    ideas how I can resolve them? Your help would be greatly appreciated.
