    You need to check your pop and smtp server settings. Pop recieves and smtp sends mail, one can be wrong and the other will still work. In outlook express, click tools, accounts, click the mail tab, make sure your mail provider is selected below it, click properties, on the server tab what are your pop3 and smtp settings? Do you know what they should be? If not, who provides your e-mail?
    Attached is a pic of the box you should be looking at when you get there.

    Every once in a while I have that happen and I need to re-boot.
    Neither my ISP or I can figure out why, but the re-boot cures it.

    wow....thanks for so many replies...

    I use Outlook Express for my email program.
    here is the message I get when sending an email message:

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: '[email protected]', Server: 'mail.picscasting.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F


    The strange thing is, I can receive messages but I cannot send them.... I also have one of my Hotmail accounts connected to EO and that works just fine (both sending and receiveng).


    Please let me know if there is any more information required to help fix the problem...thanks..

    I was thinking that Spybot might have caused this problem...I recently downloaded the program and did a scan...lots of things poped up and I ended up selecting everything..(the computer novice that I am)...I think I might have deleted something from the regkey that I wasn't supposed to.... Again, being the computer novice that I am - when things didn't work out with OE, I then removed Spybot from my comupter thinking that this would restore everything back to normal....OOPS.. didn't help...

    thanks in advance for everyones help...

    U still havent answered my question - what mail company do you use, picscasting.com? If you use an email as your ISP gave you, or you might have created one, well as far as I know pop accounts and ISP's arent a good mix, I have the same kinda problem half of the time I check my pop box provided by mu ISP, it just wont work, it's a good thing it isn;t my main email address.
