Problems with o2 Mail Server

  Border View 17:02 02 Dec 2008

Is any o2 user having problems with their mail server. I use Outlook Express and am receiving

The server responded with an error. Account: 'O2 Email', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Cannot connect to POP server (, connect error 10060', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

I have used O2 assistant and part of it tells me I am not connected to the internet. Silly of course I am.

Just wondered if its an o2 thing.

I've got the same problem and the same error message.I've done a system restore without any success. Guess I'll give it a little while before contacting o2. Looked at Google but I suspect I may do more harm than good if start fiddling

I wondered if it had anything to do with the new version of Avast which installed today.

I have had the same problem - go to Properties - Servers and make sure you tick the bottom box (requires authentication) and click settings and fill in your details again.

Justed checked and all OK now. Mended itself. Must have been a clitch at the server.
