    Windows mail can't receive nor send


    Windows mail stoped sending and recieving mail from my pop3 server. I can log into the servers website to read mail but cannot down/upload to my computer. The Internet provider is not able to help as the problem seems to be on my computer.
    I have successfully used this mail for 2 years until last 3 weeks. Help anyone? Kapsa:)

    Mind if I join in with the questions? I'm not trying to hijack or anything, but I have a similar issue. Well, same problem, but I am brand new to Vista and Windows Mail. Seems it doesn't want to reach the pop server and times out. I have yet to successfully use Windows Mail. Have used OE6 for many years.

    Error:
    Account: 'SBC Yahoo Mail', Server: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC19

    I am able to ping both pop and smtp servers.

    Thanks!

    C.

    Similar problem of mine went away by disabling tcpip auto tuning,

    Open eleveted command prompt and type

    netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled hit enter.

    Restart and try
