Default Can't Receive Emails

Hello. McAfee VirusScan Enterprise + AntiSpyware 8.7.0i.
Please remember Outlook 2003 worked fine. It is only Outlook 2007 that has
this issue with POP3.

That doesn't let your security software off the hook as being a potential
cause. Because an application was compatible with Outlook 2003 doesn't mean
it's compatible with Outlook 2007. Moreover, your firewall may see Outlook
2007 as a completely different program than Outlook 2003, since the image has
different attributes, and block it when it didn't block Outook 2003. As an
experiment, disable your security suite and frewall and try send/receive in
Outlook again. If it works, then you know it's something in the security
suite. Reenable the parts one at a time and you should be able to find where
the problem occurs. If the problem occurs even with your security suite
disabled, then we've got a better indication that it may be Outlook.
