Hi guys hope someone can help me.

Yesterday my e-mails just stopped coming into my inbox and mails I was trying to send out are stuck in my outbox. (MS outlook 2002 SP3)

I have double checked and re-entered my server settings and account details. I have tried archiving and deleting e-mails. I can still collect mails direct from the server and no-one else in the office (we have a small office network) has this problem, and it just happened spontaneously. I have been told there is no problem at the server end.

When I send/receive you can see it's making contact with the server because it knows how many e-mails are there and says receiving XX of XX but then you get the error meesage '(0x8004060C) : 'Unknown error 0x8004060C'.

Hope someone can help me I'm not that savvy with all this.

Thanks very much in advance.

Yeah sorry it was relatively straight forward in the end.

I had previously gone through my deleted mails box and cleared that out as I thought the pst file was full, and I archived my current mails and deleted a few more here and there with no results which is why I figured it wasn't a capacity issue.

It was only after I got rid rid of about 500 mails or so from current and archive folders that it started working again, so I guess hoarding e-mails just caught up with me.

I hope this is clear enough.
