I have 2 email addresses, one through a company server, and the other a regular ISP account. Using Windows live mail 2012.

-The company email address I can not receive message, but I can send.
-The ISP email address seems to work fine although it seems like I am getting
less emails especially spam type stuff, or anything auto generated.

The servers, ports, password is all accurate. I first had this problem 3 weeks ago, online forum suggested to disable anti virus suite, so I did McAfee I uninstalled it.
So Windows Defender is running now, Windows 10. If I disable Defender it does not solve the problem.

Anyway the problem has resurfaced again. Same problem logging onto Webmail, the one account does not receive. I loaded eM Client (in case it was a live mail problem) same issue.

When I refresh for mail on the company email account I am prompted to enter my password, so I do that and hit ok, it keeps bouncing back. Says unable to send or receive password is incorrect (I can send though)
The error message is
Server Error: 0x800CCC90
Server response” ERR log in failed
then list the server name
Windows Live Mail Error 0x800CCC92
Protocol POP3
Port 110
Secure (SSL) No

Any help is appreciated.

Also when I set up eM Client it automatically attempted multiple port possibilities.

Are these accounts set up using POP or IMAP type?

Live mail is a really old program.

On some setups you can get a System Restore to work by simply starting it from within Safe Mode.

POP for live mail, and I think eM Client is IMAP? I have moved inboxes folders from live mail to eM Client so when I get this fixed I can use it and discontinue live mail. BTW after I uninstalled McAffe suite, email started working fine for about a week.

"Same problem logging onto Webmail, the one account does not receive"

What do you mean by this? To me Webmail is logging into an email account online (website).

One thing that struck me is that if i am right the company email is on POP with 110 and no SSL? That shouldn't be like this in this day and age. It should be 993 and SSL on.

The errors that you have given shows connection to the server and/or incorrect credentials. I suspect the ports are meant to be 993/SSL.

When you uninstalled McAfee, did you use a removal tool? sometimes there are remenants of McAfee that will still cause issues.

Yes webmail is the website of the ISP. I tried SSL on and it generated 995, did not work. I have clear text auth box checked also, always like that.

With McAfee I did a regular uninstall. I did find one last remaining McAfee item called true key and uninstalled a few minutes ago.

In safe mode with networking live mail would not open, message that it could be installed not correctly of something about checking disc space.

I'm sorry, 993 is for IMAP not POP. POP is 995.

So to make sure I understand this:

You are getting an error that one shows incorrect username/password; another is not connecting to server for receiving mail, but can send mail.

When you log into webmail, you get the same issue
Q: is 'webmail' the same email account with the issue, or another email system that you are using to access the affected account? i.e. you have a gmail account and adding the company email account in there to view the emails.

More info:
Make sure you delete the username and password information and retype it.
Since you are having issues with a company email account, does the company have its own email web portal? If so, is it through Office365, G-Mail, Outlook.com, or their own?
Since you are having issues with a company email account, have you spoken to them about this account and why the message is saying your username/password is correct?
Make sure the username is correct... some may need the full email account, some just the first part (before the @)
