    Sorry but I had to re-post this problem as the title was incorrect.

    Socket error 10065 from Outlook Express
    Hi, for the last few days we have been receiving "The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Joint French', Server: 'pop.orange.fr', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10065, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E" from Outlook Express.

    I have :
    - run a full Norton system scan - no viruses found
    - run a disc cleanup via Start programs, accessories, system tools, disc cleanup
    - run a Norton registry cleanup - same problem
    - tried uninstalling Outlook and then found a posting that says you cant physically uninstall and reinstall outlook

    Google chrome is working ok and I can get to the messages via Chrome but am having no luck getting outlook to send and receive mail.

    Internet search implies it may be a broekn registry entry but is there a recommended registry cleanup took and/or can you suggest anything else I can try?

    Much appreciated

    Just for completeness - I found the cause of the error was nothing to do with ports. We use an application called Peerblock which prevent our PC sending information to third parties (telecoms companies, educations institutions, etc.) This uses lists from www.iblocklist.com and one list in particular (the bogon list) would seem to contain an IP address which conflicts with a combination of Orange.fr and Outlook express requirements and so prevents Outlook working.
