The most likely explanation is that your ISP (manx.net?) server is temporarily down. can you connect by webmail?

If it is manx net then you s try accessing your e-mails by logging in on here click here

can access through web browser, but want to set up windows live mail, but would prefer outlook express. have serached for the error code without success

The error code means that it cannot connect to the server. Are you just setting up the account? have you ever received or sent e-mails through Windows Live Mail? What is your operating system?

Have you ever got it to work?
Have you got the right password?
Double check the settings.
