I am trying to setup an email on a neighbours computer the computer connects to the internet with no problem. When you try to use the email program it will not connect, after about a minute an error message comes up which reads "Pop3 Port110 Secure SSL No Socket error 10060 Error No. 0x800CC0E" it will occasionally receive emails. The operating system is Vista Home Premium email program is Windows mail, the computer came with Norton pre-installed for a trial period, which has now run out. From day one I have not persuaded the email to work. The Internet connection is Broadband.
I have just tried enabling ssl on my windows mail and I now get the same error as OAP65. If I disable it I can use as normal. Note the wording in advanced states "this server requires secure connection". So I assume this will only work if your server supports SSL.
many thanks for all the replies so far, the neighbour who's computer I am having problems with has gone away and will not be back until monday once he returns I will try these solutions I have received so far or any new ones that arrive in the mean time. I will come back onto the help line to let you know how I get on. Many thanks
