Outlook Express Won't Download Mail
My mom's WinXP clunker stopped downloading mail in Outlook Express. The dsl router lights flash indicating that it's downloading something but then it times out after 45 seconds or so and gives this error message:
"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'email@example.com', Server: 'pop3.frontier.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F"
It will send mail, but not download it. I went to Frontier's support page and verified that the OE account is correctly set up according to their specs. Then I tried temporarily disabling Avast free edition antivirus but it still won't work.
She can still access her mail at Frontier's website (their webmail is actually through Yahoo mail) but she prefers OE...
I'm not sure what to try next.

Have you checked your ISP's service announcements for problems with the servers?
