At least for Windows Mail, just uninstalling a Norton antivirus program
fails to remove the part of it that causes problems. You often need to run
cleanup program as well:
You may even need to remove your email account under your email program,
then restart the email program and add the account again. Note that, under
Windows Live Mail, this will delete that account's messages unless you
create one or more storage folders for them, then move then there until
the account is added again.
