    Livemail inexplicably throwing up this error (under WIN7)

    When trying to send/receive I get :

    Unable to send or receive messages for the Yahoo.co (............) account. An unknown error has occurred.

    Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004005
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 110
    Secure(SSL): No


    (..........) above is my Yahoo email id.

    EDIT
    BIZARRE - 10 seconds after posting it fixed itself ...... computers ...dontcha love em
    First time this has happened in 18 months using Livemail and WIN7 - was receiving mail successfully 10 minutes before it decided to go into error.

    Any ideas anyone ?
    I can still acess Yahoo mail on web.

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    This just happened again - identical circumstances ..... and so far it hasn't fixed itself - still interested in any other experiences as I see my original post was viewed 600+ times ? Anyone had the same error and know how to fix it ?
