    I recently signed on with Cox Cable and now I cannot log on to outlook express. I get the following message

    Unable to logon to the server using Secure Password Authentication. Account: 'MSN Mail', Server: 'pop3.email.msn.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

    ANY IDEAS?

    Thanks Keith

    Have you updated your Outlook Express mail account to show Cox as your ISP?

    Open OE >Tools >Accounts > Mail > Properties > and see if your 'mail account' in the general tab has been changed to something like "mail.cox.com"{or net, whatever} and in the 'server' tab, that the outgoing has been changed to something like "smpt.cox.com".

    Some servers have special settings too. If Bill's idea doesn't work call your ISP and have them walk you through the settings.

    It worked at first and then it just quit. I use an msn email account. Am I just going to have to get one from COx?

    Shouldn't those servers have the @ symbol in them instead of two .'s
