I am using MS Outlook 2007  and Vista for Business (service pack 2).  I am not using Norton. 

can anyone help?  thanks.

What is the type of email account configured in Outlook?(Is it POP/Imap/Exchange or connector acount)

Check if you are able to receive mails on your Web server.

If it you are able to receive mails on the server, remove and re-add the email account and check the result.
