Outlook stopped receiving mail...


M

Mikey

I'm running XP Pro, Outlook 2003 & have SBC Yahoo Business DSL as my
ISP.
I'm using outlook with my sbcglobal.net email & on Thursday, I stopped
receiving emails to Outlook.
They still come to iPhone & everything is current when going to the
webmail page.
I can test the account settings in Outlook & everything works just
fine - test email goes everywhere its supposed to, except for Outlook!
I have created a new profile, new email account, pst file, using
different combinations of each, all with the same result.
Error messages I am getting are;
'Receiving' reported an error (0x800CCC90) : Your incoming (POP3)
email server has reported an internal error. If you continue to
receive this message, contact your server administrator or ISP. The
server responded ; ERR inactivity time out.
I've also received the message that the connection to the server was
interrupted, with the error code (0x800CCC0F).
Server time out is set to 10 minutes.
I have also gone to webmail & taken every message from the time this
started to present time & moved them to a separate folder, thinking an
email message may have been causing it.
I have also disable NAV, thinking it may be part of the problem, but
no luck.
ATT's tech support is pretty useless, as 'they don't support' Outlook!
One last thing, another user in office is having no problems, the only
difference is that she's using Outlook Express.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

What settings are you using for your mail server?

With a sbcglobal.net address, it looks like your server settings might
be as follows:

Incoming (POP3):
Account type: POP3
Server name: pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
Server port: 995, secure connection (SSL) checked
Username format: (e-mail address removed)
(be sure you're using the email ID and the full domain, not just the
email ID)

Outgoing (SMTP):
Account type: SMTP
Server name: smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
Server port: 465, secure connection (SSL) checked
Additional settings: Outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication


Also, take a look at this site that tells how to enable Error Logging
in Outlook 2003. This can help you troubleshoot connection issues.

I've had both of those, as well as new setting they said they were
going to be changing to, inbound.att.net (995) & outbound.att.net
(465), using SSL.
Let me try the logging...

Not really, sorry. Obviously, during that run there was nothing to
upload/send, but the download/receive portion of the session looks a
bit like it was transferring some data. Maybe a complete log from the
start of a sync to the end of that sync will reveal some hints.

That's certainly a red flag, especially the fact that you had email

Another interesting item, I can set up the same account, same

I'm thinking remove & reinstall Outlook?

Noted. Still a giant red flag, though, and something I would change
ASAP. There's no need to scan email, especially by the much maligned
Norton.

Feel any better about MS Security Essentials?

Feel any better about MS Security Essentials?

Yes, I do, but still not for scanning email.

If it's opinions you want, there's usually no shortage of them around
here. maybe others will chime in. :)

SON OF A ****ING BITCH!!!!
Removed norton, removed & reinstalled office, ran winsockfix, just to
make sure something wasn't jacked up with TCP setting & I am right
back to where I started -

Did you try deleting the profile, like we talked about? Did
reinstalling Outlook essentially create a new profile, or did it use
the corrupt remnants of what you had before?

This Microsoft article has some things you could try, including
starting Outlook in safe mode and creating a new profile. AFAIK, both
haven't been tried yet.

Yes, I've tried safe mode & have created a new profile, both before &
after reinstalling outlook.
I had hoped reinstalling would have worked & then used old pst file as
an archive, or move anything I might need to new pst.
Posted this over in Technet & the only reply I got was to make sure
Outlook is patched & up to date - why didn't he/she just ask me first
if the green power light was on?

Yes, I've tried safe mode & have created a new profile, both before &
after reinstalling outlook.

Did you *actually* use the old pst file, or did you only plan to copy
some items out of it at a later time?

started with a new one & planned to pick what I needed from old one.
BTW, AT&T's paid tech support isn't worth a shit.
Waited an hour & a half with one guy, who passed me on to a 'higher
level' of tech support - after a half hour wait.
It didn't appear that he was doing much until he asked if I was still
with him, 3 hours later. then he just disconnected.
No see ya, **** you or anything!

I guess I would go back to the error log and compare a successful sync
(on the same server but a different mail account or on a different
server) with an unsuccessful sync to see what's different. You showed
us a piece of the log before, not enough to see anything that jumped
out. If your copy of Outlook works with other servers, it might help
narrow things down. You may have tried some of this already. Good luck
with it.
