Outlook Express servere error

  Smason 06:51 06 May 2007

I have started recieving the follwing error message when trying to check email after system has been on standy :
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'your_account',
Server:'your_POP3_server', Protocol:POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): NO,
Socket error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800ccc0e

If I restart the pc it can download and send email.
Any ideas whats wrong?

No idea what's wrong, but have you tried a System Restore to a time before the problem started?

have already tried system restore but it was still giving me the same error message.

what do YOU mean by computer going to standby?

I would imagine that if the comp is not fully up and running after a rest it will not behave properly?

one assumes you are on XPsp2

and what are your protection programs?

hi p;3
if i put the computer into standy while on lunch etc (instead of Shut Down) when I come back up, it will not let me access email unless I restart pc completely.

I am on XPsp2 and use Norton Antivirus

is it a works computer or your own?

MY suggestion would be that it is not fully 'waking up' after its rest and , with Norton on board that does not surprise me;

have you tried compleltey switching it off during your break or MUST it be left on?
