MAPI error message when import or export messages in Outlook Express

Error Ox800CCC78

Are you using Outlook Express or another email program (like Microsoft's Live Mail)? What ISP are you connecting to ( (formerly Hotmail),

This is a symptom of a security mismatch. The exact solution will depend on the answers to the questions above. Most likely, you either need to change the port from the default one. You also may need to change the encryption/authentication protocol. These settings may be under different sections of the email program setup menus. (They will be in the Advanced settings of the Server Settings/SMTP settings section of the program. Check under Tools)

For example, uses port 995, instead of 110 for the pop3 server. The outgoing SMTP server needs to be accessed at port 587, instead of 25. You need to include your full email address in your user settings for both the incoming and outgoing mail. See for some details of the Hotmail/Outlook/Live Mail configurations.

Please add some comments with your specific situation for a better solution. I hope this helps.

i will assume that when you opened your web browser, your home page had been set to your email account web page. you have to find out the web page address, and then in the options for your web browser, change the start up page. to find out the web address of your emails, you will have to goto support for your email provider and ask them. your previous configuration probably remembered the passwords too.

Getting error code for sending e mails from Windows Vista home. Ox8OOCCCOD

Third Party Solution Found: From Microsoft

Error 0x800CCC0D
Problem: When you try to send or receive email, you get an error message. It
says the error number is 0x800ccc0D.

Solution: This error is basically saying that your computer cannot connect
to the mail server. The most common and obvious cause of this is that you
are not connected to the internet at all. To test whether this is the case,
try opening a news web page like or doing a Google search (just
opening your homepage is not a good enough test, because it may be saved, or
"cached", on your computer's hard drive). If this test fails, then the
problem is not with e-mail specifically, but rather with the internet
connection. For users on dial-up, you need to dial in first, and then you
should be able to check your email. If Windows is indicating that you are
already connected, try disconnecting and then dial in again. If that fails,
try restarting the computer and then connecting again. If that fails, you
may have spyware or your modem may have gone bad.

If, on the other hand, you are able to pull up web pages, yet still get
error 0x800CCC0D, you should check to make sure the mail servers are typed
in correctly. To check this in Outlook Express, open the Tools menu, select
Accounts, click on the Mail tab, click on the Properties button, then click
on the Servers tab. Or, if you use a different email program, follow the
equivalent procedure for that program. The incoming mail server should be unless your email address doesn't end with, in which
case put in whatever your address ends with instead of (for example,
if your address is, enter in ). The
outgoing mail server should be or substitute whatever your
email address ends with for

Make sure to check the mail servers for all your mail accounts if you have
multiple email addresses.

If you still get error 0x800CCC0D, and definitely can pull up web pages
(that is, the rest of the internet is working fine, only email is having a

* Restart your computer. This is simple, so you might as well try.
* Try disabling e-mail scanning in your anti-virus program. To do this
in Norton, double-click on the yellow picture for Norton down at the bottom
of your screen by your clock to open Norton. Then click the Options button
at the top of the window (if a drop-down menu appears, choose anti-virus),
then click the word Email on the menu on the left side. Uncheck both Scan
Incoming and Scan Outgoing. Click OK, then close Norton. Try checking your
messages again.
* Disable your firewall. It could be blocking Outlook Express, or
whatever your email program is, from accessing the internet. McAfee firewall
will usually not turn off even when you tell it to, so you'll have to go
into the firewall settings and delete your e-mail program from the blocked
list, or just uninstall McAfee firewall entirely using the Add/Remove
Programs control panel.
* Make sure you recieve replies when you ping the mail server. If you
cannot, something strange is going on.
* Try checking email using a different mail program such as Thunderbird,
or through webmail on our web site, and see if that works.

Other Cases

You may be able to get mail when you first open Outlook Express, but then
get error 0x800CCC0D from then on. To solve this, go to the Tools Menu >
Options > Connection tab, and uncheck "Hang up after sending and receiving".

Your email works fine, but error 0x800CCC0D keeps constantly popping up over
and over. In Microsoft Outlook, Tools > Options > Mail Setup tab > Send and
Receive, and uncheck "Schedule an automatic send/receive every 5 minutes"
(older versions of Outlook will have a similar option under the Mail
Delivery tab). In Outlook Express, go to Tools > Options, and uncheck "check
for messages every ... minutes".

Hi, When I launch Windows Mail, it sends and receives emails with no problems. When I press the send/receive button I get the message "Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks....

what email service are you using, is it hotmail, yahoo's pop3, gmail, your isp's

I suspect is a setting in the advance settings in windows mail, possibly in the advance tab. I would suggest for you to enable logging in the maintenance section under the advance tab in settings that way if there's a problem this can be logged into a text file that will help with the troubleshooting process.

I have something similar happening to a client, he was using his ISP (internet service provider's account), we concluded that the issue could be the actual isp as when the computer was moved to another location (different isp) in my shop, we attempted to recreate the problem, and the problem was gone.

also check with isp, there may be something in the configuration that may have been missed.

I can't receive e-mail. A log in message keeps popping up each time I open my e-mail. My user name and password is there and I have to cancel the box to get to my messages. This time I got a message:...

What is your email provider (like hotmail, yahoo, etc), and what program are you using to get mail? (windows live, outlook, outlook express?)
Have you tried accessing your mailbox directly from a browser window and logging into the provider website? You'll be able to check your password access that way...
Give us some more details and we might be able to answer better...
If you're using outlook, I think I fixed that issue once but it took some searching, and reappeared after may have a corrupt user profile or mail profile and need to make a new one...
