[X-post to OE General]
Assuming you're referring to Outlook Express...
Troubleshooting error messages that you receive when you are using OL and OE
Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It provides no
additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.
