I'm still using Little Snitch but just noticed that Skype isn't going  
online when I start it up. I'm not seeing any problems with Mail. I'd  
rather be able to adjust the rules correctly than un-install.  
Incidentally, I had no problems that I know of util I updated to  
10.5.6; what OS version are you using?

Good Luck,
