ZoneAlarm has been working fine for years, and all of a sudden I can't send emails. When I try to send an email in Outlook Express, nothing happens. When I try to send an email in Thunderbird, it says it's contacting the smtp server, but never contacts it, never sends the email, and never stops to tell me it couldn't send. I can receive emails just fine.
When I shut down Zonealarm, I can send emails just fine.
In ZA's Program Control, the settings for OE and Thunderbird are:
Trust Level = III
Access, Server, and Send Mail = Allow (green checkmark)
ZA's Inbound and Outbound Mailsafe Protection are turned off.
This all started happening on Feb 19 when I returned from a weekend away. During the weekend, my computer was powered on and received several Windows updates. I don't know why that would cause this problem, but I mention it just in case.
Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this.
