    Default Re: Outlook being blocked is your own computer. Outlook needs to use it with whatever ports Windows assigns.

    Outlook also needs to have Send Mail rights, and two additional checks: Access to the Trusted and Internet Zones in the Program Control tab.

    Please recheck your settings on the Firewall zones tab (copied from Guru Oldsod's frequent advice here)
    "1. Go to Run type in command, hit OK, and type ipconfig /all then press enter. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall>Zones tab click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted
    3. Click OK and then Apply for each one.
    4. The localhost or loopback must be listed as Trusted. It has the address of
    5 The Generic Host Process or the svchost.exe listed in the Program list must have both Trusted and Internet access and it must have server rights for the Trusted Zone, but not the Internet Zone."

    Guru Slyfox. I think that that link is for ZA free people where mail check was partly enabled but messing some things up.

    Here we have ZASS, where mail check can be used. I think all it needs is proper setup. The tipoff to the lack thereof IMO is the local host item - if things were setup correctly, 127... wouldn't even come up as an issue. I hope you don't mind my meddling, but my use of ZASS (v6 though) with Outlook is one of no issues at all.
