After googling this error code and trying, testing, spyware, defrags, debug and everything else I could think of (other then re-installing all of Windows XP Professional). I still cannot send and receive my POP 3 accounts. However hotmail is working fine in Outlook Express :(

For some reason I cannot un-install Outlook Express with the add & remove programs. It shows it's gone on my desk top. However when I re-install the program is the same corrupt one get launched? I am trying to avoid a complete re-install.

Does anyone have any ideas. IPS, servers, passwords and accounts are all fine. We have many adresss with this server and all other PC's here have Outlook Express and are fine, using the POP 3 mail server and ISP.

Please help.

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'Arata Info', Server: 'mail.arata-ex.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '+OK 1107 octets', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

NAV has been known to cause this problem.
Do you have Norton Antivirus?
Also, do you have a firewall? The firewall may be blocking OE.

I do not have NAV? Also yes, I have Norton, but I went through all the settings. That is not the problem? As a matter of fact it has been working fine for 14 months until 9 days ago?

I have been to this page and have gone through the steps. No luck with respect to NAV, all the settings are right?

DO you have just Norton Antivirus? or Norton Internet Security (ie. Norton's firewall)?

If so, have you tried to disable Norton and try the email?
Do you have any other Firewall, such as ZoneAlarm?

One thing Symantec forgots to mention, is sometimes you have to completely Uninstall their software (as it is messed up). If you have a copy of it (so that you can reinstall it if you want.. but I would switch to a different one), I would uninstall all Norton products and then try your email.

Wow! Your the man!

I completely Uninstall their software and the POP 3 mail is fine? Should I re-install NAV?

To be brutally honest... NO.

I personally use the paid version of AVG, but you can get a free copy for personal use here: http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/

As for a Firewall, your best bet would be to purchase a router (you may already have one) that has firewall capabilities (about a $60 purchase) - however, this will only be usefull to you if you are on highspeed internet.

Thanks for the info. If I am using a PC card (via cell service). How can I protect myself without a firewall? I hear zone labs and other firewalls cause problems.

You'll want some kind of software firewall..
ZoneAlarm - http://www.download.com/ZoneAlarm/3000-10435_4-10388719.html?tag=lst-0-1

Sygate - http://www.download.com/Sygate-Personal-Firewall/3000-2092_4-10332265.html?tag=lst-0-1

Kerio - http://www.download.com/Kerio-Personal-Firewall/3000-2092_4-10322940.html?tag=lst-0-1

And yes, these software firewalls "can" cause problems. If you have Windows XP, you can also enable its firewall (not the best in the world)..

You definately need a firewall, so I would take the chance with one of the ones i've mention above.

Hey Bradly, I did what you recommended downloaded AGV, however I am experiencing trouble with the hotmail account in Outlook? It keeps prompting me for the password. Of course it hasn't changed in 10 years? Any thoughts.

Also, is there a way to set up a spam folder with AGV (like NAV has)?

Thanks for your time.

After you enter the password, does it then work?

AVG does sometimes cause problems with emails.. but it just requires a little fix.

See the last post here for the solution: http://forums.pcworld.co.nz/archive/index.php/t-52710.html


AVG does NOT have a spam filter, but you can either setup rules in Outlook yourself (Tools - Rules Wizard).

There is also a FREE outlook spam plugin (spambayes), which you can download here: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/spambayes/spambayes-1.0.3.exe?download

OR your other option is to go with a 3rd party spam filter software.
