    Windows Mail has stopped working

    I have been using Windows Mail in Vista on my desktop PC to access my '' mail for the last 2 or 3 years. I have had no problems doing this until recently when I fiddled about with my settings to require password input each time. This didn't work so I tried to reset everything as before but now I get the message:

    "The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Wykes', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E"

    As far as I know, all my settings are identical to those I used before and I have not changed any other settings or software on the PC.

    I am using a service from a company called Carbonite to back up all my data externally, but this problem arose several weeks after starting to use this service.

    I am using Outlook on my laptop and have not had any problems so it is probably reasonable to assume that it is not a problem with the btinternet (now BT Yahoo email service.

    Any help gratefully received.
