This, I cannot confirm.


Hi! I am having difficulty confirming this for two reasons. Perhaps I am
doing something wrong. I am running Norton Antivirus 2000 with poproxy.exe
on MS Outlook 2000.

You're probably running liveupdate because...

poproxy.exe SEEMS to only bind to localhost (127.0.0.1) instead of my IP on
the network (192.168.0.24). If I try to telnet to port 110 from another
Windows machine, it cannot connect. If I try to telnet to 127.0.0.1 from my

... this used to be the case that it was bound to all interfaces. It was discovered as a bug (after a long time of bickering with Symantec) and they fixed it in a patch, which could be applied if you used their LiveUpdate feature.

An unpatched version will have the problem.
