Unable to send/receive email.

I am using Win ME and am suddenly unable to
send/receive email using OE. All I get is an
error message as follows.
connection to server has failed account pop3
lineone.co.uk. Server `local host`. ProtocolSMTP,
Port 7362, Secure(ssl), No, Socket error 10061.
Error number Ox800cccOE.
I am able to access the internet and can send
email from Hotmail. Can anyone help resolve this
problem please. Meshuga.

The Server "local host" and the port number suggests that you're using an antivirus program to scan email before downloading.

Sometimes the AV program doesn't work properly in handling email.

Close OE. Then try disabling email protection. Open OE to see if it works. Then re-enable email protection.

If not, disable AV email protection again, and re-enter your account settings. Try sending email. Then re-enable AV.
