Windows 7: SlickVPN breaks Outlook & Newsreader connections.

29 Dec 2017   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64
SlickVPN breaks Outlook & Newsreader connections.

Unsure of correct sub-forum so...

After installing SlickVPN I'm finding that when it's activated Outlook 2007 and my Newsreader (Newsbin) cannot access the internet. All other standalone internet accessing apps and web browsing works fine.

With Outlook all outgoing mail is operational (both to my non-Exchange personal domain and Comcast). Incoming mail is successful with Comcast whereas my personal domain fails. If I switch the VPN off all is back to normal. I've tried numerous VPN domains from local to distant with no difference in connectivity success.

Windows 7 Ultimate
Outlook 2007
Newsbin 6.80
Verizon Gigabit
Windows Firewall

I'd be happy to supply any additional pertinent info.
