    Error 0x8000CCC0f when retrieving POP3 email

    This problem just started happening in the past week. No changes to account
    settings, firewall, network etc.

    Connecting to a POP3 mail server, I'm now unable to connect and retrive
    email. Receive the following error:

    Unable to send or receive messages for the XXXXX account. Your server has
    unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include
    server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

    Server: 'pop.xxx.yyy.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 995
    Secure(SSL): Yes

    Sending email shows the same problem:

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
    this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
    inactivity.

    Subject 'Test'
    Server: 'smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com'

    Are you scanning your in and outgoing emails? Disable the email scanning by
    uninstalling your AV and then re-installing it without the email
    integration(scanning). Sometimes just disabling it will not take or do

    I suspect it is actually 'pop.bizmail.yahoo.com' (based on the SMTP
    server name).

    Re: Error 0x8000CCC0f when retrieving POP3 email

    I'm synchronizing two accounts, one is hotmail (working fine) and the second
    one started encountering the same problem (0x8000CCC0f) few weeks ago after
    working fine. This must be something local on the machine as I set up the
    same configuration on another machine and it is working fine.
    The faulty machine: XP SP3, Symantec end point protection 11.0

    Windows Mail doesn't do Hotmail unless your Hotmail account
    happens to have POP access.

    Re: Error 0x8000CCC0f when retrieving POP3 email

    Tried disabling AV to no avail

    A couple of more tidbits ...

    - The same account settings work fine in Thunderbird
    - I have another POP account in WLM that works fine
    - The key difference between the 2 accounts is that the "failing" account
    uses SSL, the "good" account does not
    - Both accounts are hosted on Yahoo - The "failing" account is a business
    account through Yahoo's web hosting service. The "good" account is a Yahoo
    Premium personal email account.
    - I tried deleting and re-adding the "failing" account in WLM. Same problem
    after the account was recreated.

    Any other thoughts ... ??

    Re: Error 0x8000CCC0f when retrieving POP3 email

    Which AV is it? You might try a temporary uninstall to see if that
    implicates the AV as the culprit. Just 'disabling' an AV often does
    not stop all of its pervasive activities.
