Outlook won't receive mail.

Hi All,

I've been messing around with Outlook 2007 & now can't receive any e-mails.

I'm running Vista Ultimate & have Bit Defender as an Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware
program.

I also had to reinstall Bit Defender as well, as it suddenly crashed on me
around the same time.

That works fine now (but I'm wondering if i've somehow block the incoming
POP mail).

I've tried adding another POP account to Outlook & that doesn't work either.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave.

Outlook won't send mail. I can send mail from any other place on my
computer. Even one small e-mail won't go through. Unless, I connect to
someone else's internet provider and then it will send from outlook. I can't
figure this one out.

I have the new Vista program, and I can't get Outlook to receive mail. It
sends, but it won't receive. I can create a new message and send it. The
message will be in my sent file, but I get an error message:

I have 2 accounts set up. One account gives the following error message:

Task 'mail.officecommunique.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) :
'Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password
in your account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server
responded: -ERR authorization failed'

The other gives this error message:

Task 'mail.insightbb.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your
e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password in your
account properties. Under Tools, click E-mail accounts. The server
responded: -ERR [AUTH] Authentication failed'

What do these mean? If there's an error in receiving, why not when sending???

I have Outlook set up the exact same way as Windows Mail, and Windows Mail
is working fine.

Please help. Thanks.

When I am sent email with large attachments (4Mb or more) outlook won't
receive them and then all other emails sent don't come through. How do I set
outlook to be able to handle large emails?

Outllok has been workjing fine for 18 months on this machine, but has in the
last two weeks stopped sending and receiving. Outlook will test the account
settings and generate a test email that sends ok and all settings show as
correct, but it won't download it back from the ISP, other emails won't send
and the accounts won't receive. Tried a freeware email client and that works
fine. Doesn't give any error message, just sits there and complains it
hasn't sent all mail when you quit the application. Anyone seen this?

Outlook will not send mail. It use to but just quit. I don't remember doing
anything or making any changes that might have caused it. I can recieive
mail in outlook. I can send and receive from any other place on my computer,
like this site for example. It is only outlook that won't send.
I don't know what else to do. Please Help?

Outlook would recieve email yesterday now it won't. I can go to hotmail on
the web and my mail is there though. Outlook still has the old messages
displayed. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,
I've set my gmail account to be operated through outlook. It has worked
perfect for long time. But since last 2 days, when I click 'send/receive'
button, it says...Receiving Message 1 of 9 (3.2MB of 15MB)...the receiving
memory keeps increasing to about 11MB or so and then it restarts counting
from 1KB onwards upto 11MB and again..some kind of loop. But it won't receive
any messages. If someone sends me new mails to gmail, it will read as 1 of 10
and so on but memory count stills goes in loop.

What can be wrong?! Is it any virus or limit max in outlook set up? It is
frustrating.

Please help...thanks

Hello to all,

I have a user that can't receive mail using a pop connection to my exchange
server. We're configured to use pop with ssl port 995 and it is working
because other users are not having an issue and I created his profile on to
two other computers and it worked fine. He can send mail but he can't pull
anything of the server. He get an error message stating the he can't connect
to the mail server and should contact the system admin. I cheched his
settings and they are correct.

He is using outlook 2007 on a Win XP pro computer connecting to a Exchange
2003 server.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Eddie

Outlook 2003 won't send mail and when I try and shut down the PC with Outlook
open I get a ThorConnWndClass won't close error.
I've tried detect and repair, uninstall, reinstall and Service Pack 3 update.
Is there a hotfix to rectify this issue? How can I get outlook to send mail
again?

I have wireless network at home. Outlook works fine. Whenever I connect to
a different wireless network, Outlook won't send or receive. How can I fix
this?

I was having a problem with Office and the "missing SKU011.CAB" file error,
and could never get it fixed, so I uninstalled Office, and re-installed.
Now, I don't have the missing file error, but Outlook won't run. I get a
message that says "Unable to open default mail folders" when I try to open
Outlook. All the other programs from the Office 10 CD have loaded OK and run
properly. I have tried the re-install twice, and I've run detect and repair
twice. Still the same problem with Outlook.

I am been stumped all weekend. Last Wednesday Outlook 2007 stopped sending
my email. No error messages, in fact a copy of the message even appears in
the sent items folder – however no one (including me) is getting anything
sent from my Outlook email account. I am receiving email just fine.

My Web Mail account works and Outlook Express works fine. I have tripled
checked my e-mail setting – they are correct. I contacted Time Warner / Road
Runner – no problems on their end. My wife (using a separate computer) can
send and receive just fine with Outlook 2003 on a “sub-account”.

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2, with Office 2007 SP1.

I disabled McAfee Antivirus and Zone Alarm – same problem. I un-installed
Outlook, then re-installed -- same problem.

On an other forum, I saw the suggestion to change the MTU (from 1500 to
1492). The individual said that that did not help. But last night I was
desperate and decided to give it a try. I went to my router (Netgear) and
changed the MTU and I can now send email from Outlook 2007. I tried it again
this morning and it is still working.

For anybody with a similar problem (Outlook 2007, can’t send email, but no
error messages). This same thing happened to me about 6 months ago. I
un-installed then re-installed Outlook and that fixed my problem -- This time
the un-install / re-install did not solve my problem. After trying close to
a hundred things, changing the MTU did resolve my problem. I did not see
anything about this on the Technet.

Unfortunately this afternoon, I am back where I started. Outlook 2007 is
receiving mail just fine, but not sending email. The MTU change only
temporally “fixed” the problem. All other programs are working normally.

Hi people,

I'm new on this forum, so be gentle

I have a strange problem at a client of mine.

This client uses Outlook 2007 and Exchange 2003.
Sometimes mails are sent to multiple recipients inclding himself, and in most cases he doesn't receive those mails. But when someone from those recipients replies (to all) he does receive the email. So he doesn't receive new mails, but 're: mails' are no problem.
There are no rules enabled inside Outlook, no rules or policies enabled on Exhchange, SPAM filter is also not the problem.

Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks!

Howdy.

Troubleshooting a friends computer--XP SP2, Office pro 2003. Suddenly
Outlook will not receive messages. Friend claims only change was a
recent windows update.

I setup another computer on the same network and could send and receive
with no issues, so I know we have the account settings correct, and
there's no issue with the router (netgear) or ISP (cable through RCN).

Diabled the AV scan on incoming email (trend micro) so I dont think
that's the issue.

Tried uninstall/reinstall Outlook, tried the reinstall/repair Office
from control panel--no go.

Tried setting up a new email account in Outlook--it sends email but
will not receive.

When I "Test Account Settings..." the error is "Outlook could not
connect to the incoming mail server (POP3). The problem could be the
server name or port, or your server may not support SSL."

Again, I was able to receive email from the same account on a computer
on the same network. Oh, and I can ping the email server I am trying
to get email from.

This was working, and the claim is nothing has changed except for a
windows update.

Any thoughts??

TIA,

Sean

English, please: what is a mail applet? I'm trying to get rid of Exchange,
too.
Thanks

I have Outlook 2002 on Windows 2000. The computer and everything else works perfectly
except that it has gotten to the point where Outlook won't send or receive if I do not
do a send/receive after five minutes. My computer is free from viruses and spyware, I
scan every week.

The errors are get are 0x8004210B and 0x8004210A. It is getting worse and worse.

My daddy told me to uninstall my antivirus. I did that. I also shut down my antispyware.
I was told to do a tected and repair on Outlook. I did that.
Today I had the exact same problem 3 times. From searching the web I see that there are
lots and lots of people like me with this problem and no one can help them.

This is really hurting me now. I know about my computer and there is nothing wrong with
this one but this is really getting me angry that there are so many people with the same
problem as me but Microsoft won't fix it. Someone please help me.

I just installed Outlook 2007 over Outlook 2000. When I opened 2007 it
wouldn't let me delete/move files as it said file too large, but I was able
to delete much by using shift/delete. I then closed the Outlook and now it
will not re-open, stating that it is too large and I should delete files.
Someone has told me that you are supposed to compact the file after deleting,
but the popup did not tell me that. I can't delete any more files, as
Outlook won't open...where/how do I delete files when it's not open, I don't
understand! I wanted to get help from Microsoft, but it denies my i.d.
number that is on the brand new Office that I bought and received from Amazon
today. Will appreciate any help.

I am running Vista SP0 and Outlook 2003. On the admiistrator account, I can
send and receive mail in both Outlook 2003 and windows Mail. On the
non-administrator account, windows mail sends and recieves, but Outlook 2003
can send but not receive. The "test accounts settings" responds properly.
All settings look to be identical. but when I select send/receive in this
Outlook account, nothing happens. I am using pc-cillin Internet security
for virus protection. Anyone have an idea what the problem may
be? Hopefully, this is not a Vista problem.

I don't know what happened. The isend icon is gone and all sudden Outlook
won't receive any emails. What happened? and wshat can I do to fix this?

Thanks

Outlook 2003 times out receiving mail. This happens only on one machine.
The exact same settings on another machine work fine and retrieve the
e-mail.
Winsock error 10054 from this machine only. All others are fine
Repair install, uniinstall Service packs all tried.
Thank you.
