This just happend today. When I tried to send emails I get this message.

An unknown error has occurred. Protocol: SMTP, Port: 0, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800C012E

I looked up on the net, and try to fix the problem as they tells me to: go to search and find *.dbx and uncheck the read only and apply. Well, all my dbx files do not have read only checked.

What do I do now?

Receiving emails is fine.

Howdy:

Couple things to try.. BTW, is this with Outlook or Outlook Express??

As per Microsoft..

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.
2. In the Named box, type folders.dbx.
3. In the Look In box, click your primary hard disk (usually drive C), and then click Find Now.
4. Right-click the Folders.dbx file, and then click Rename.
5. Type folders.old, and then click OK.
6. Start Outlook Express. This creates a new Folders.dbx file automatically.

or this one..

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then click Files or Folders.
2. In the Named box, type Sent Items.dbx.
3. In the Look In box, click your primary hard disk (usually drive C), and then click Find Now.
4. Right-click the Sent Items.dbx file, and then click Rename.
5. Type Sent Items.old, and then click OK.
6. Restart Outlook Express. This action automatically creates a new Sent Items.dbx file.

I restarted the computer and it did the repair disk procedure on its own, and it is working now.

FYI, step one did nothing for me.

Thanks
