Problem with e-mail and firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a problem that seems to be with firewall. When I receive an e-mail with an image and forward it the recipient may receive 10-20-30 of the same e-mails. Also when I enclose a picture with my e-mail the recipient may get 25 or more e-mails or get a bunch of garbage. I was informed that it may be a problem with Windows One Care firewall?

  • No, OneCare does not include email scanning.

    If you have other security software installed, it may be happening due to a conflict with OneCare, but the problem is likely either with your email program or your ISP.

    To confirm that it isn't OneCare (assuming no other security software is running on the PC), open OneCare, click on Change Settings and temporarily disable the firewall.
