    Emails fail to transmit (XP Windows Proff. SP2 )

    Hi all, all of a sudden I am unable to send an email to myself, something I occasionally do when sending an email to numerous names in my address book choosing to use the Bcc field for their names to preserve anonymity. I know such emails have gone because they are listed in the "Sent" folder. Any idea why this should happen and how to rectify it would be appreciated. Incidentally, sending an email to my Outlook Express address from an alternative Hot mail address transmits ok so maybe this points to some anomaly with my OE settings? Thanks S F.

    Re: Emails fail to transmit (XP Windows Proff. SP2

    Hi guys, seeing no one has had time to respond to my question perhaps I can add a little more info. that might help. I have just noticed that any email I send myself from my O.E. account appears in the "Deleted Items" folder so I have just checked the "Blocked" senders list and my OE address is NOT on it. Regards S F.

    Is the email domain blocked?

    Hi Dave. The simple answer to your question is "I haven't a clue", you're dealing with a silver surfer who doesn't know very much I'm afraid. SORRY but you will have to be a little more explicit as to how I determine whether the email domain is blocked or not. All I know is that before downloading AVG version 8 I never had any bother sending emails to myself ( for checking purposes) and incidentally, neither did I have any bother running "Scan & Repair " < http://scanandrepair.net/ > [see attachment] but now AVG rejects it as "A Fake". Very strange as I have used it without any problems for many months. Regards S F

    Re: Emails fail to transmit (XP Windows Proff. SP2

    Have you tried shutting down AVG after sending and then trying to receive your email ?? It is a relatively safe way to troubleshoot the problem. If you are still unable to recieve your own email after a normal wait (10 minutes should be enough) then you can assume that it's AVG causing the problem and work on the setting in AVG.

    As far as "Scan & Repair" goes, you can simply click on the "Add To Exceptions" button and it won't warn you again. But, I should add that I agree with AVG's assessment.

    Re: Emails fail to transmit (XP Windows Proff. SP2

    Hello Doc. Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate this forum and all concerned with helping fumbling souls like me. Please forgive my ineptitude but with the previous version of AVG I found it easy to turn it off for such purposes as the test you suggest but with this version it is not not [to me] clear how to so do. PLEASE talk this silver surfer through the process step by step. Regarding the Scan & Repair, I acquired it from the owner of my local computer shop who recommended it and I have no reason to suspect that it is anything other than reliable & expedient to have on my HD. As I indicated, I have used it for many months without conflict with the previous version of AVG but this one pounces on it immediately and pronounces it a fake. I have found it to be a quick and simple program to use & expels intruders with a simple click of the Delete tab. KInd regards S Fox

    While in OE, go to "Tools, Message Rules, Blocked Sending List".
    Check to see if your email address or domain is listed, if so, delete it.

    I'm afraid that I can't help you with AVG. I don't use it and am not very familiar with it other than from working with older versions on other people's computers. I would assume that it should offer a list of options if you right click on the System Tray icon.

    If you like Scan & Repair then, by all means, use it. I checked their website and was under-impressed with it. That, combined with AVG marking it as suspect, is what I based my opinion on.

    Re: Emails fail to transmit (XP Windows Proff. SP2

    Hi again. Doc, thanks for your frankness about Scan & Repair I must admit it is very much an unknown quantity to many loungers but I have not found it to be suspect in any way whilst I have used it. As for the original anomaly regarding the rare emails I send to myself not appearing in the Inbox, it is nothing to sweat about seeing I am now aware that are in fact diverted into the Deleted Items folder, I just wondered why all of a sudden this should happen. As for the suggestion made by Dave that I should check the "Blocked" addresses in O.E. I have already done that so it seems I must do a little more fishing for suggestions, maybe Grisoft can enlighten me. Incidentally I have uninstalled the Scan & Repair prog just in case!!!! Many thanks again S Fox.

    (Edited by HansV to make URL clickable - see <!help=19>Help 19<!/help>)

    Hi all - here is a sort of PS; I have just been fishing around and discovered the reason emails addressed to myself are sent to the Deleted Items folder instead of the Inbox. For the benefit of any others who may encounter this anomaly caused by AVG's new version 8 this URL will lead to a page of helpful information: -
