I just set up Microsoft Outlook to work with my gmail account and it worked fine for a few days. Then, I move into a dorm, and I have to do all that **** with the schools internet stuff and it can't send/receive from gmail anymore. I did everything I could think of and it won't work. I tried all the MCafree settings and everything. Anyone have a clue? I know it is due to the school but does anyone use outlook that can maybe help?

Does internet and other emails work ok?

The school hasn't blocked it on purpose?

Oh isn't this the wrong forum?

What the hell is this doing in General HARDWARE section?
Oh and McAfee is better than AVG...

Same problem here. :(

All was fine until the last big update from Mcaffee. After a couple of hours pulling my hair out I went to the Mcaffee suport and did an online session with a tech. He informed me that this was a known problem and a hotfix to fix it was avail. He sent me the fix and it now works correctly.

I suggest you do the same or at least check the Mcaffee site for info on this hotfix.

I hate it and don't like to use it. In order to acess the school's network though, you need to have it. BUll****. It ****s things up. I'll try that hotline/try to find that hitfix for it. Thanks.

QFT - I used it once a couple years ago, never, ever again.
