This message appears : Connection to server has failed. A/C:, Server',protocol POP3,Port 110,Secure (SSL):No,Socket Error:10061,Error Number 0x8ooCC0E. What does all this mean ? Will the problem solve itself or can I do anything ?

Could mean that the NTL e-mail server is down.
Can you access your e-mails by webmail?

Wooolwell & Skidzy - Thanks. Yes, I can access via webmail. I looked at the Microsoft link & could not understand what it suggested I should do ! Any other suggestions ? Thanks

Can you try disabling your firewall briefly,and see if you can open OE.
If using IE6 try this fix click here repairs OE also.Does not work with IE7

Do you have any anti-spam software running?

Skidzy & Woolwell - Thanks again. Problem appears to be solved by switching my Zonealarm email protection off & then on again. Had a lot of help from NTL Support Centre & then PC Helpline (0906-9910001 - but this costs £1 a minute ! )

Creditman,glad your sorted out now.But for future need not phone these helplines.
Im sure myself or someone here can help you out,though may take a little longer than phone support,if we cannot help your problems,you always have that option to ring the helplines..
