  1. Jeff (and Steven) you are not going to believe this, I have not touched a thing on this computer by way of install/uninstall/updates, I just started up Outlook to see if a particular mail I was expecting was in the INBOX using the IMAP connection, the whole pack of POP3 mail came through while Outlook sat there with a "who me?" smirk! <GRRR> I have to suppose it was something at my ISP or along the way, it is darned spooky! Re: telnet, that worked fine and logged in even so no problem there, but then, the problem seems to have fixed itself before I telnetted so no clues there. I've switched over to Opera so I can zoom the page up to 150% so back to "normal" size text. Thanks for your patience and do you know anywhere that does grey hair replacements for bald spots? %-)
  2. Does being registered blind count? ;-) I have limited vision in one eye, sorry if it jumps out at you from the screen. I hadn't realised there was a Repair option - running that now, thank you. Regards
  3. I moved all past messages to a Temp folder and let new mail arrive (it was after 3am after all ) and the same error code is being generated for the new mail. Email scanning has been disabled in NAV to no effect, even after a reboot, but I'm increasingly coming to the view that it is Outlook that is at fault <sigh> Thanks for you help Steven, much appreciated.
  4. guess who again %-) I put that error code: 0x80042108 through Google and came up with their http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;318790 That puts the problem down to Symantec software Now I use Norton AV2004 not NPF or NIS which have been specifically indicated, and up until a couple of days ago, everything was working fine. I'm not aware of any recent updaates to NAV or Office.
  5. Even entering the actual IP address (purely for testing not permanent change), it comes up with that error again: Task 'Spamcop - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' I guess it's time to start killing off Norton Antivirus, etc. :-o
  6. Thanks for the swift response Steven. Ping resolves to the same IP address. I'll just go recreate the Outlook account ... ;-)
  7. Yes, no luck there. The error message Outlook comes back with is: "Task 'Spamcop - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' " Yet the mail server is correct, as far as I can see the settings are all correct. Regards,
  8. Hope you can help, I am using the latest version of Outlook 2003 on XP SP2. In the last few days, I have had consistent errors connecting to download mail using POP3 from mail.spamcop.net I have tried deleting the account in Outlook and recreating it, but nothing seems to work. I can access my mail using webmail or by setting up an IMAP account in Outlook but I would prefer to download mail by POP3. Any assistance or suggestions appreciated, thanks.
