I have windows xp ,internet explorer 7,service pack 3 and outlook express 6 .
when i try to send e-mail i get error code 0x800ccc0e. I don't know if it makes any
difference but i also have AVG 8 FREE edition , spybot search & destroy , C Cleaner
and spamfighter. My microsoft updates are on automatic , as a result of which i am
not sure if the beginning of this problem coincided with the installation of service pack 3.
Internet searches to solve this problem all seem to direct me to registry fixers, but what do these do and if this is the way to go, whose should i use ?

Go to www.microsoft.com/support. for changing OE.
Have you talked to your ISP about the problem. I use Windstream.net (used to be Alltel.net) and periodically have a similar problem and have to work with them to correct it.
By all means, get your anti virus back.. dangerous to go on line without one. Also, get a spyware blocker/removal program or two. I recommend SpyBot search and destroy and lava soft's ad-aware. both are available free at www.majorgeeks.com or www.download.com.

Is this the email account provided by your ISP or is it a different domain?

Some years back many ISPs began blocking forwarding or port 25 SMTP traffic to help combat spam. This was frustrating to those who used other mail providers than their ISP such as their web site host; but there were workarounds such as changing to a secure login and port 465

More recently, many ISPs have begun filtering outgoing mail and checking the header. If you use a different email account in the from line you must login to your primary account web interface and add that email address to the list of verified addresses. They will email a confirmation to that email address which you must receive and click a verification link to confirm that you own both addresses.

Other than that the previously provided link
http://computerquestionhelp.com/blo...ror-0x800CCC0E-mean-and-how-can-i-fix-it.html
is your best explanation.
