I have encountered the following report for each of our email accounts on Microsoft Outlook Express this morning (Here is one of the error messages):

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '[email protected]'. Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number 0x800CCC0E

I can check all the mail accounts via web access, so the problem evidently is with my Outlook Express. Am I right? What can be done about it? Can you help? T H A N K S !

Hiya

I've moved this to Web and email for more response :)

Take a look at this:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q302339

Even though that's for MSN, where it mentions smtp.email.msn.com see if changing it to smtp.mail.comcast.net. It may/may not work, so you may have to change it back if its doesn't.

Is this just happening when you try to receive emails, sending or both?

Regards

I didn't know it was possible to access one e-mail account using another e-mail account's servers. Why is your address at wateroflifeministries.org but you're using a Comcast server?
