Most often this problem occurs when your internet service provider (ISP) blocks their sending port from use by other servers.
Example: If your internet service provider is bellsouth for example and your outgoing mail server is set to mail.yahoo.com or smtp.yahoo.com or mail.yourdomainname.com etc.... it may be getting blocked by bellsouth. The do this to avoid spammers from using their systems.
To fix it, contact your internet service provider and ask what your outgoing mail server should be. For Bellsouth it would be mail.bellsouth.net. Replace your outgoing mail server information with the information provided by your ISP and all should work well.

I have had the same problem with being unable to access free AOL mail and error code COFE1702. I have had to clear the internet browser history and cookies each and every time and then I am able to access the mail.
Re-booted the system several times before it would clearly shut down properly. Then went onto several different e-mail sites which showed no problems getting the e-mail. I still have no idea what really fixed this problem but the next day, everything was working fine. Thanks.
