I have got this error message for the last 24 hours and am therefore unable
to send emails. Any suggestions?

The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'ashkat???', Account:

I have tried everything but buy a new version of Outlook. I have removed all
AV software, removed Office 2003 and re-installed, verified and re-verified
ISP info and can not get Outlook to retrieve msgs. It will send but will not
receive. The full error msg is as follows:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.windstream.net',
Server: 'pop.windstream.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,
Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Any suggestions? I am running on a dial-up from my home computer with a
speedstream modem. I previously ran Bellsouth as my ISP and have since
changed to alltel. They provided me with phonejack gadgets to avoid internet
interuption. I am connecting to the internet because I am able to retrieve
my msg's from webmail. Any thoughts on this issue?

Smart People:

I have a new Dell computer running Windows XP Media Center Edition
2002, SP2 and this is what's happening: I get online (I have a dial-up
connection) and get email and use the internet and all works fine,
sometimes. But quite frequently everything stalls. The monitor icon
in the system tray says I'm connected, but I can't get on the Internet
or receive/send email. In Outlook Express I get this message:

Server could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the
server name correctly... Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,
Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D.

I've searched this forum & others looking for solutions and have tried
shutting off my AV email scan (EZTrust) and that did not work. In fact
after turning off the AV email scan I got Socket Error: 10060, Error
Number 0x800CCC0E.

I have to disconnect (it takes about 20 seconds to disconnect after
this happens) and then reconnect and sometimes all works well for a
while (an hour or so) and sometimes it doesn't. This problem is
occurring daily.

Can someone help me solve this problem, it's driving me nuts and is
most annoying.

Thank you.

Hello Community, i am very computer savy business owner who is as desperate
as can be. I simply can not sen emails from outlook express ( nor any other
email client installed on my 2 computers).
The complete error message i get from outlook express as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The connection to the server has failed. Account:
'mail.utahoutventures.com', Server: 'mail.utahoutventures.com', Protocol:
SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I am on a Comcast DSL Internet connection, and have tried (almost?) every
possible setting there is. My settings have been verified with my technician,
he is able to receive AND send emails with teh exact same setting i am using,
just on my computer it does not want to work.

Here are my settings: pop and smtp are set correctly, ports 25 and 110 with
60 secs timeout, Incoming mail with correct user/pass, remember pass checked,
Log on using secure Auth is unchecked, My server requires authent. is checked
with teh same user pass as for receiving. But as i said on my techs computer
it works...so it has to be on my machine or my internet connection - right?

Oh, Firwall turned off, and the same error with escan anti virus truned on
or off.

HELP!!....PLEASE!!!!!!

you were absolutly right ref this socket error,i ran Spybot and it found a
firewall problem and solved it.outlook outgoing messages fine. thanks

-I have been using OE6 and it suddenly quit working properly. I can receive
e-mails but when I send i get an error.
Port 25, Socket error 10060 and 0x800cccoe...I appears by my research that
port 25 is being blocked. I am using comcast and can send e-mail if I go to
their site. Why would they block that port? Who Comcast? Is anyone else
having that problem in this area? What can I do to fix this problem?-

Hi,

I have a 2003 server and it exhibits some strange behavior so I do not know
how to fix it. I have tried everything, as suggested by Microsoft - for the
specific error(s), with no avail.

The server is a Dell computer with Windows 2003 Server (Domain Controller)
and Exchange 2003 running on the same box. Actually this is the only box on
the domain. Exchange 2003 is at SP2, the OS has all security patches
available installed. There is no antivirus (OS or email) on it at this time.

The network configuration is as follows: ADSL, Netopia DSL router. The email
server is NAT-ed using a 192.168.1.X IP and the public IP (on the DSL router)
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx resolves to xxxx.dyndns.org. The router allows SMTP, HTTPS,
IMAP to pass through for the email server’s IP.

I send/receive emails with IMAP and OWA and all works fine, no problems –
but only when I am NOT connected to the same network! When I connect either
wireless or directly to one of the router’s LAN ports, I cannot send emails.
The interesting part is that I cannot send with either IMAP or OWA – both of
them will timeout. The message when using IMAP is, after about 30 sec:
- Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes
for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
inactivity. Subject 'Re: TSq', Account: 'xxxx.dyndns.org', Server:
'xxxx.dyndns.org', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error:
10053, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

The message when using OWA is: after about 1min a window will pop-up with a
yellow exclamation sign and the word UNKNOWN in the middle.

Here comes the interesting part. If I connect with the VPN to my work
network and try to resend the message – it works! It also works if I am
anywhere else connected to the Internet but not on the network where the
email server is.

There is a more interesting behavior. If I try to send a test message with
only a few words, the message goes through, NO error. If I write 4-5 words
and try to send an email it will NOT work. The same - will not work - if I
try to reply to an email, probably because it increases slightly in size –
but works fine if I connect with the VPN to my work place and try to send or
reply to the same email. It appears that only small emails can go through but
not larger ones.

I have enabled the logging and there is not much I can see, only noticed
that after HELO and other instructions there is no DATA entry when the email
fails (In the IIS SMTP log). The same email will have a DATA entry in the log
when trying to send the same email but after connected with the VPN – so,
from the outside network.

I have noticed that in the Application log (OS), there are entries that say
something like user xxxxxx connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and then it doesn’t
work, but when I connect through the VPN and it works, it says user xxxxxxx
connected from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - the IP at work (from the VPN). The computers
I try to send emails from are all connected to the same DSL router – either
LAN or wireless. Anyone knows if there is something in the Exchange or
Windows 2003 that will prevent a user (domain admin or just regular user – I
have tried with different accounts) to logon and send email when coming –
apparently – from the same IP as the server’s default domain (although the
server is NAT-ed, the public IP actually resolves to xxxx.dyndns.org which is
the domain for the email server). Why is it working if I am not on the same
network with the email server but not when I am connected to the same router
as the server?

I have tried all methods suggested in kbs -I could find- for these specific
errors: no av software, no firewall, IIS bandwidth throttling, different XP
computers with SP1 or SP2, even a PDA, with the same negative result. The
only one I cannot try is the MTU as the Netopia DSL router doesn’t have a way
to tweak the MTU. I saw that some Linksys DSL routers have this issue.

Sorry for the long post but I believe this is a pretty interesting issue. I
have seen that other people had similar problems but I could not find a fix
for this particular one. This is not related but it may be a similar
“security feature”, someone may be aware of. I know that for security reasons
(last year), one Windows hotfix disabled the ability to connect with the VPN
if you come from the same subnet/network as the VPN server. This email
behavior is similar but still not consistent so it may not be the same as the
emails go through if small, a few words, but timeout and fail if they have
4-5 words or bigger.

Thank you,

Running XP Pro, receive this message when trying to send from OE6: "The

All email settings are correct, contacted ISP, have followed KB article
191687 as much as possible since we aren't running Windows NT, and any other
