When my OE 6.x program tries to send or get messages, I get two error messages:

An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'pop-server.nyc.rr.com', Server: 'smtp-server.nyc.rr.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '554 Cannot connect to SMTP server 24.29.102.150 (24.29.102.150:25), connect error 10061', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 554, Error Number: 0x800CCC6F

The server responded with an error. Account: 'pop-server.nyc.rr.com', Server: 'pop-server.nyc.rr.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR Cannot connect to POP server 24.29.102.101 (24.29.102.101:110), connect error 10061', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC90

I recehecked all my settings and spoke with my ISP. They say it's an OE problem. I am able to browse WWW and check my email via web mail, no problem.

I've tried reinstalling OE, but Microsoft Update tells me I have the latest version and won't install over it. I don't have an XP2 CD as Dell didn't provide one so I'm stuck at this point. Any suggestions?? Thanks :tazz:

Folks,

I actually solved the problem in case anyone else has the same issue. It turned out to be a firewall issue (Zone Alarm) which was somehow blocking access. I determined this by shutting down the firewall and trying OE again. It worked fine with the firewall off.
