Outlook Express Error 0x800CCC0F
When you start Outlook Express or try to
send an e-mail message, you may get one of the following
- Your server has unexpectedly
terminated the connection. Possible causes for this
include server problems, network problems, or a long
period of inactivity. Account: 'pop.yourname', Server: 'pop.yourname',
Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error
This problem is often modem related. The
first step is to;
- check your
Outlook Express settings, making sure that the POP3
and SMTP servers are as in the screenshots, and that
your full user name and password are correct. (Tip.
Watch out for SMTP spelt as STMP, and that commas are
not there in place of full points).
- If this is OK, read the
Modem and connections troubleshooting guide
- If you're still having problems,
it could be that Outlook Express is itself corrupt.
Microsoft's instructions on how to delete it and
reinstall it, along with making a backup of your address
books etc, are at

for Windows 2000.
