error 0x800ccc0e socket error 10060

I am trying to help a friend out with this error. He can send but not
receive in Outlook Express 6 running on Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I
have read and read articles on the internet on how to fix this and
tried several different suggested solutions with no luck. I have
uninstalled and reinstalled OE as microsoft suggested, I have
uninstalled all antivirus software (temproarily of course), and tried
with the windows firewall turned off and have even moved the machine
from behind his Linksys firewall. No luck in getting this issue
resolved. I have went over his connection settings several times as
well, and verified that they are correct with comcast. I did find a
few viruses and a lot of spyware on his machine when I started working
on this issue. I guess what I am trying to find out is if there is a
type of virus, spyware, or malware that would cause this issue? I have
scanned and cleaned the machine with AntiVir, Symantec Antivirus
Corporate 9, Windows Defender, Ad-Aware, Spy-Bot and Prevx1. I have
also ran windows SFC with no luck. Any help or ideas would be would be
appreciated. My next step is the pretty little Dell Recovery Disk.

Hello,

I am having a problem with one PC that has Outlook 2000 installed.
When outlook is
running in the background the dialog box will pop up with the error:

Unable to connect to server. Error 0x800CCC0E

I have verified that all of the pop3/smtp server settings are correct.
I have tried to rebuild the outlook.pst file. This is not the
problem. Also, I've deleted the profile and re-entered it from
scratch.

What could be causing this error and what is the remedy?

Thanks.
Mike

We are using e-trust firewall and SCM (Secure Content Manager). From
yester day we are facing a problem when cheking email via outlook
express.

In server "smtp for scm" service is inactive. I tried to start the
service but failed to start the service. The error message is posted
below:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: '192.168.0.1',
Server: '192.168.0.1', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,
Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Suggestion / solution is welcome.

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Don Willson', Server:
'SMTP.COMCAST.NET', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error:
10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

One day Outlook and Outlook express were working perfectly, the next day I
could not send.
I turned off Norton E-mail scanning, in and out.

Any suggestions.

Thanks

When i start up my pc which is XP i get a few messages saying that certain
ports ie.110 are used by other programs and i need to change Spamilator and
Outlook Express port numbers. Then I get the error message
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'My Name', Server:
'localhost', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061,
Error Number: 0x800CCC0E.
Ive tried to look everywhere to see what is actually using port 110 and cant
find the info anywhere. Im using Comodo Firewall and the problem has just
started recently. Could it be a virus??

I cannot sent or receive messages. My Server: SMTP.aol.com. errors: No
Socket Error 10060,
Error Number: 0x800CCC0E. (What is Port 25, if my Port for IMAP is 119).
Could help to solve this problem?

I have a paid account and seem to have endless issues with OE and HOTMAIL.
Once working something comes up that needs repair after a few weeks. Below

I can receive e-mails but cannot send them out. Up to few days ago, I was
using Outlook perfectly. I can't say what changed. Actually, nothing i can
think of

When I click 'Send/Receive' I get the following error message:
Unable to connect to the server (Account: 'xxxxx', SMTP "Server:
'smtp.mail.yahoo.com.br , Error " Number 0x800ccc0e).

Looking up at Microsoft help page, I read I need to use a MSN account if I
intend to use Messenger (because it wouldn't allow a SMTP other than MSN). I
simply refuse to be forced to use a different SMTP. That one I was using,
worked perfectly for years!
Here some data that may help identify a solution:
Windows XP
Internet Explorer 7.0
Microsoft Outlook 2000 SR-1 (9.0.0.3821)

I've tested this 9 ways from Sunday.

On the effected machine I can't send using either outlook or outlook express. The machine is an XP box with SP3+ and McAfee running. MS office suite is office 2002. All are up to date with no known vulnerabilities. I get the error message of "The connecction..... Protocol SMTP.......,Socket: 10060, Error Number:0x800CCC0E"

The weird thing is that I created a test account, pop3, and tested from my remote machine. It runs fine from this one but when I load it on the effected machine with the same settings it doesn't work with either outlook and OE. This only effects outging messages and not incoming.

I've tried disabling firewalls, all av programs ect with no luck.

The web mail based version works fine for send and receive and it works from my remote machine so it's only this localized box. The only thing I can think of is a common service or dll that is common between outlook and OE that could be corrupt or not running.

I've blown away mail profiles but beyond that, as I said, I created a new mailbox on the mailserver and loaded it on 2 different machines. It works fine on my local box but gets the same error messages on the effected box. Any direction on this one? It's definitely only on the one machine and not coming from my server.

Thanks for all your input and opinions.

I can't send any email with OE to nobody. my account is with aol.com &
hotmail.com
and even more.
and even my password go through with aol & hotmail, so far ,but it's always
block anytime I
try to send an email please tell me what to do below is errors;

I am trying to assist a senior citizen with her Outlook Express 6 error
proglem. I normally am able to locate the solution to her problem but this
time I am getting somewhat confused by some of my research, Can you tell me
how to get her Outlook Express to send and receive POP3 email in Outlook
Express from MSN Mail. The settings look fine.

Hi guys,

Cant get IMAP SSL working on my exchange 03 box.

When turning off SSL in the imap virtual server by going properties > access and unticking SSL in both authentication and communication and obviously changing the ports in outlook back to 143 the connection works fine and i get my mail. When turning them back on i get the following errors..

Task 'Checking for new mail in subscribed folders on mail.domain.com.' reported error (0x800CCC0E) : 'Outlook is unable to download folder (null) from the IMAP e-mail server for account mail.domain.com. Error: Unable to connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Port 993 is forwarding to the mail server. The certificate is installed on the virtual server and OWA works fine. Am i missing something here?

"Task 'Work: Folder:Inbox Check for new mail.' reported error (0x800CCC0E) :
'Outlook is unable to download folder Inbox from the IMAP e-mail server for
account Work. Error: Unable to connect to the server. If you continue to
receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service"

Connecting to a LINUX server running Dovecot.

Any ideas on how to stop error.

Thx

I have recently (May 05) started recieving this error code when attempting to
retrieve my POP3 mail (Outlook 2000). Have tried removing/disable firewalls
and nothing works. I can send through the SMTP but not able to recieve. My
ISP will not assist as it is a third party e-mail. My e-mail domain provider
states it is not an error on their end. Any suggestions?
