Unable to download mail on outlook express

  Acornone 21:52 22 Aug 2007

I have not been able to download mail on outlook express since he 17th Aug. I can send out though. I get an indication that mail 4 of 30 is being recieved. After about 15 minutes an error Message appears:-

Message number 3 could not be retrieved. Account: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: 'levels so is off to =', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800420CD

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Server: 'pop.tiscali.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
I phoned Tiscali who lead me through reconfigering the POP settings but that did not work. They left me saying that I should take the lap top back to the supplier as the system was corrupted.
Any ideas?
Also is it possible to read tiscali account on yahoo mail? Only I seem to remember seeing something about reading your pop accounts.

Sounds like a Server Problem tiscali

If you get disconnected just temporary then that would do it

You could try and read all your emails on the Tiscali web site through your account.

Look for number 3 email then read it, copy and paste into word if you want it and then delete it.

This might free up the server issue when you try to download them while in OE.

Worth a try.

Thank you so much mail2web.com worked. I was able to read all the messages which were very important to me and delete all the rubbish. Just tried outlook express and I have new mail.
