hi All,

My zonealarm personal firewall sometimes gives me message saying yahoo
messenger is trying to send email messages. When I deny the access the
messenger will not boot up. This problem will persist, either till the
time I reinstall the messenger or give the permission.

Do you guys have an idea what email messages are these? Is it some
known spy ware? Thanks
, Leo

What is the specific message that ZA is giving you?  Are you sure it's
trying to send email and not just connect?  I have given access to Yahoo
Autoupdater, Yahoo Messenger and Yserver module.  Not sure if all is needed
but Messenger is for sure to allow it to work.  Never had any mail message
warnings though.
