Messenger 7.0 Build 7.0.0777 email problem

I'm using Norton Internet Security with MSN 7 but when I click on the mail
button to read any mail, it does not connect to Hotmail. However, when I
disable NIS it connects to Hotmail fine.

Now for the strange part.....

If I re-enable NIS and press the email button again, it goes straight to
Hotmail no problem!!!

What could be wrong?

The problem is Norton Internet Security. It's a piece of junk. Norton
makes it SO difficult to allow anything through the firwall. You'll need to
add the URL and possibly the port/upd for inbound and outbound in the Norton
firewall in order for it to go out without any problems.

My suggestion is when your subscription to Norton expires, uninstall it, and
buy Trend Micro's PC-cillian. It's far superior to Norton and much easier
to make work.

Or, get AVG 7.0 free antivirus.
