Need some remedy to get rid of my outlook that hang


T

Hello!

I hope that somebody might come with a solution that solve my problem.

The problem is that my outlook 2000 version 9.0.0.2814 hang when I
click the button marked <send and receive>. This happen even when I
have no mail either to send or receive. It seems to happen any time.
The plattform I use is windows 2000 professional.
I have also tried with outlook express 6 also with the same kind of
hang.

Now to the very strange thing.
Next to me there is another computer called B that also have windows
2000 professional but with outlook express 5 on the same Ethernet LAN
actually sitting in the same switch as the one that is hanging. Note I
have exactly the
same setting as the one that is hanging for POP3 and SMTP and the
account name, password and so on. When I use this one called B I
have never ever have experienced a hang it always work perfectly. So
if I try to
use outlook express 5 on the computer B when outlook 2000 hang it
always work but outlook 2000 hang until it timeout.

As I mentioned this happen often even when I have no mail because
computer B didn't receive any.


We have two network card in the computer with outlook 2000 so I have
disabled the one that I don't use but the hang is still there.

I can't cause it to hang it just hang any time. For example when I
arrived to work this morning I checked to see if I had any mail it
hang so I used computer B instead to check my mail.
So if I check if I have any mail it might work but if I check again
after for example 5 minutes it might hang.


So because I can always click on the <send and receive> on computer B
when outlook 2000 hang the problem must be on my computer it can't be
located on either POP3 server or SMTP server.

I have set the server timeout to 5 minutes
When it hang it says connecting to server and then after some time I
get this message
Here is the error message in Swedish
"En timeout inträffade vid kommunikation med servern. (Konto:Min
mail,POP3-server:
mail.uht.se, Felnummer:0x800ccc19)."

In English it says something like
A timeout has occurred when comminicating with the server.(Account
Min mail,POP3-server:mail.uht.se, Error number: 0x800ccc19).


As a solution I have uninstall AVG completely but the hang is still
there.
I have done route print on both the one that I have a prolem with and
the one that works all the time and there is a difference. I just
wonder if the problem can be caused by wrong
routings.

It's very annoying and irretating problem that I do want to get rid
of as soon as possible.

Does anyone have any suggestion what is causing this kind of strange
problem.

What can I do next to try to figure out why outlook 2000 or outlook
express hang?

Somebode suggest to update my windows 2000 and I have done so but the
hang is still there.

I have now tried to use just the telnet from the console window and
here is the result.
I have manage several times to have this command "telnet mail.uht.se
110" to hang but if I use the same command from computer B I always
receive an answer.

I just wonder when I here use telnet and receive no answer does this
give any more information then we had before using telnet.
