    'Talking MS-Outlook ies' (OL 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    OK I don not know this new language called MS-Oulook-ies. Like what the heck does the error message mean:

    Task "Task_name" - Receiving reported error (0x800CCC0F)...

    Searching for 0x800CCC0F, I got to this page talking about modems. I am on a LAN, and how can the cable be disconnected, if I am on a LAN, DSL connection?

    Hum!!! Could some one in the UK be yanking cables off of servers and modems?

    This problem has made me download 800+ messages over and over again.

    What could be causing this enteruption?

    Thanks

    Sometimes the mail server will close the connection on a large download, particularly if it is servicing too many requests. Very inconvenient for you. Sometimes your mail client will time out waiting for a response (this, at least, you can address to some extent by extending the time-out on the Advanced tab of the account settings). And yes, sometimes, the world is just cruel for no reason.

    Do you have IMAP access to the POP3 account? If so, you could split the 800 messages into folders and download them in groups...

    Yes some time the World is just playing with our feelings.

    OK I also found a MSKB article, number 813514 in which MS blames Symantec and/or Zone Labs, and Symantec blames AT&T and/or Comcast.

    OK so where does the Buck stops? I guess with the User, because all the links point to me not having my settings correct. Forget about the software working fine the day before, and after, its the User <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23>

    I have managed to waste a whole day debugging this application, and I have noted down in my notes that the client gets a whole lot of e-mails. I will suggest making multipe accounts and simply grab each at a time.

    Thanks again

    I have found that I will be ahead if I just play the wait game. No need in getting all upset because the Internet is slow and the servers will not respond as one would like for them to. As time passes so Will the slowness of the Internet. No need in pointing the finger to the other guy, because by the time you have talked to them all it is back on line.

    I do call Comcast most of the time to let them know that the system is slow and the neighbor's systems are also slow. This will get them to check out the lines. We have had ice and water get into the switches which will also slow things down. We had a kink in the line so as the sun hit the cable and warmed up and stretched then the connection separated and lost the signal. This one took about 3 weeks to find, as the time of day it was happening was getting later and later but by a few minutes each day. A sharp tech was in the neighborhood and checking with his customers when it went down. He started at my house connection and headed toward the company's (Comcast's) end. About 2 miles from here he found the kink, work order cut and was fixed that night.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
