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 news.com 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
pop3.vcn.com unless your email address doesn't end with @vcn.com, in which
case put in whatever your address ends with instead of vcn.com (for example,
if your address is person@wavecom.net, enter in pop3.wavecom.net ). The
outgoing mail server should be smtp.vcn.com or substitute whatever your
email address ends with for vcn.com.

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
problem):

* 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".

I cannot send email to using yahoo account


You must allow your router access to send out mail. other wise it will keep the messages you send in the outbox. go to your router setup or type your router ip address in the internet browser and manually enable the port 465 you may have to goto applications and games tab if you have a linksys router. Also enable ports 80 for internet,25 for simplemail transport protocol (SMTP),110(e-mail),443secure (bank account information) this will allow the router the proper ablity to send and recieve e-mails.

What is the POP 3 address to send email using instead of using wi


You simple CANNOT. Windows Mail no longer supports the HTTP servers used by Yahoo! and other web-based e-mail providers. Windows Mail does not permit the use a Web-based (HTTP) e-mail account on a computer that is running Windows Vista.
For an alternative, use Windows Live Mail instead of Windows Mail

loadTOCNode(3, 'resolution'); Windows Live Mail is an e-mail program that you install on your computer. Windows Live Mail stores messages on your computer. This means that you can access, read, and compose e-mail messages even when you are not connected to the Internet.

Windows Live Mail works with popular Web-based e-mail services such as Hotmail, AOL mail, Google mail, and Yahoo! mail. Windows Live Mail is built to automatically configure many popular e-mail services.

To install Windows Live Mail, visit http://download.live.com/wlmail

I have vista ultimate computer.When I try to send message of picture using windows mail I get msg "error" The host msn cld not be found.Pls verify that you have entered the server correctly subject...


Are you using Windows mail or Outlook? You need to set the sockets and outgoing server settings.
Try going to Outlook Express tools, Accounts, then click on "ISP Account".
Click "Properties", then the servers tab and check that the detail in the SMTP entry is correct for your ISP. It may be advisable to delete it and re-enter it to be sure.
Go here and do further reading.
If you use Windows Live, use one of these settings. You can check it from here, and also download the setup again. If it gives more trouble, go to Add/Remove Programs and from there you can select Repair or Change->Repair.
Check the router settings to check whether it blocked (or check the settings if you have a firewall).
For further help, please Right Click on My Computer and go to Manage and go to Event Viewer and go to the Application category and copy and send us the exact error message please.

Email set up problems


from the data you have given, me, it sounds like you are using Either Outlook, or the bundled Windows Mail service.  
What is happening, is that an email your program is trying to send, an email with "test" in the subject line, but is unable to because it cannot connect to the server. looking at the string, I see several problems. make sure your settings are configured a mentioned below: 
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing (SMTP) Server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
  • Email Address: your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
If this doesn't resolve your problem, refer to this page for more information. (Note: if you do not subscribe and pay in to a "Yahoo Plus" plan, this could also pose a problem, as Yahoo does not allow you to use third-party email programs with their "free" service, as they like to restrict it to webmail only. If you want a free email service that *does* however, I strongly suggest you check out google's Gmail service [what I use])

Sending mails using asp.net


ASP.net is a programming environment, not a freaking e-mail MTA. If you knew why the transport connect failed, that would give you a clue how to fix your program. I imagine you are not; however, programming. Are you trying to use a .Net Mail program?

Stop calling for Sir, too; smart girls might hook you up, and then you'll be behind even if you can send e-mail. Which I also suspect; really, you should not.

E-Mailing


This is because your server that you are trying to send email on doesn't support Pop3, SMTP, etc. Make sure it supports it first before attempting to enter it into Windows Live Mail.
