    windows live mail error - 0x800CCC0F

    hi can anyone help??, I have been using windows live mail successfully for 6 months with no problems, suddenly I was unable to receive or send emails and got the following message:

    Unable to send or receive messages for the Sky 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.tools.sky.com'
    Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 995
    Secure(SSL): Yes

    I have tried switching off avasta security but no luck I have also deleted and re-entered my email accounts, and, finally I purchased regcure software which claimed it could fix 0x800CCC0F problems!!!, it didnt

    Hi,

    I have just posted a similar thread - it appears this is a common problem but still no answer that helps!. I have tried disabling Norton 360, resetting passwords etc but nothing!!!

    hey,

    How are you connected to the net? because there may be an issue with your router which could be blocking that 995 port? take a look at your router settings....
