    error message, can't receive emails!

    I keep getting this error msg. And my email messages are not downloading. I
    am unable to use my email.

    "The connection to the server has failed.
    Account:'incoming.verison.net',Server:'incoming.verizon.net',Protocol:
    POP3,Port:995.Secure(SSL):Yes,Socket Error: 10060, ErroR Number: 0x800CCC0E"

    PLEASE help me. This has been going on for 5 days and I can't figure it out.
    Thanks.

    Try this:
    Go to Tools, Accounts, select that account, Properties, Advanced,
    then change the incoming port from 995 to 110. That should automatically
    uncheck the associated SSL option also. Restart Windows Mail, then try
    receiving.

    If no improvement, which antivirus are you running? Some of them cause
    problems with Windows Mail over time.
