Error 0x8000CCC0f when retrieving POP3 email

#1
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'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 465
Secure(SSL): Yes

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

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.

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 ... ??

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.

With some anti-virus (and anti-spam) programs, simply disabling the
e-mail scanning function doesn't really disable it. It simply tells the
program not to flag any messages. It still processes all the messages
and may still cause send/receive problems. What you may need to do is
uninstall the anti-virus program, then reinstall it using a custom
install option and unselect the e-mail scanning component for
installation.

Depending on how the anti-virus installed itself, it's entirely possible
that it is scanning e-mail in WLM and not Thunderbird.

If you change the Bad account POP3 on port 110 without SSL like the Good
account, does it work then?
