    Things that go bump in the night (Outlook Express 6.0/ Win 2k sp2/Office 0

    From time to time I receive the following message when attempting to send or receive mail, "the server connection has failed....
    Error Number: 0x800CCC0E". Visited the MS OEXP web site no clear solution, rechecked my mail account settings and set up all appears ok, running Norton System works 06', visited this site as well......on more than one occasion the problem seems to miraculously cleared itself

    This normally means that YOUR ISP server was not responding at THAT time, but did respond a few minutes later. This is known to happen a lot with different ISP's. Some times the likes of Norton's will slow things down and the server will time out.

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

    Thanks Dave,

    that is what I thought as well, however, from time to time a window will pop up asking if I want to make outlook express my default mail service, makes me think that a software battle is taking place in the back ground. In all cases I check and re-check my account set up options in outlook express.
