Windows Firewall and Windows mail

Hello,

I want to set Windows Firewall to block all inbound and outbound
traffic in the "Windows Firewall and Advanced Security" panel in
Administrative Tools for all three profiles. This is not the problem
though. The problem is that I can not get it to allow "Windows Mail" or
"Windows Live Mail" connection to the internet. The e-mail programs
will give me a "Cannot connect to server, port 110" error when it is set
to block all. I set the Windows Firewall to allow the EXE files of both
e-mail programs in both the incoming and outgoing rules. What am I
missing please? I have no problems with IE7 or Live Messenger being
allowed.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Shawn

You need to add an exception in the firewall to allow port 110.

Hope this helps.

Hi Steve,

I added an exception for port 110 for both in and out, but when I set
to block I still have the error message above. Only when I set the
firewall to allow outbound for public profile again will it connect, of
course. The other two profiles are always set to block in & out. I only
use the public profile.

Any other ideas?

Thank you,
Shawn
