Outlook 2003 Error 0x800CCC0F

Specs: XP Pro, Pentium 4, 512 Ram
I am setting up a POP3 account and am very frustrated. Outlook Express seems to work however I cannot get full Outlook to function. I am using the same IP for POP3 and SMTP as recommended by my provider. Full Outlook is supported. In test part of the setup I cannot send a test message. When I try to send mail I receive error 0x800CCC0F. What is the most likely problem here?

Verify with your ISP that your Outlook settings (outgoing mail server; authentication required/not; ssl settings) are all configured correctly.

Thanks so much for the message.
I have tried virtually all combinations of
authentication required/not & ssl settings along with the correct ports for ssl. I am unable to send a test message in setup and still receive error 0x800CCC0F when sending. Any other options/probable causes?

Are you able to receive mail?

It seems to be hit or miss on the receiving end. Mail is getting through however.

I would check the server timeouts and also verify that you can indeed ping the mail server. Try recreating the email account in Outlook, or check this MSKB Article:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813...

There are many possible causes of this. I'd go with recreating the account first.

This error message means that outlook can't connect to the mail server due to TCP/IP blocking filters... via security settings on your local box or the remote one...

I had a customer receive this error and the mail server was blocking the customers requests via firewall filter settings..

As I said, there are many possible causes for this error. The KB Article does include firewall issues.

However, it's not normally on the server end, and the poster did say OE was indeed connecting fine.
