Got me a brand new 'puter.....
ASUS A8N SLI Delux
1 gig ram
Win XP home
2 nvidia 128 meg video cards
This system came pre installed so I am not sure what was done on set up but I ma having issues with sending and receiving email via Outlook 2000
and Outlook Express version 6. The error message I get is:
The TCP/IP connection was terminated by the server. POP3 server <server name>, message number 0x800cccf
The motherboard is running a hardware/software based firewall that appears to be ( or I am thinking it is ) blocking the ports that are used by send and receive mail functions in Outlook.
I managed, with no difficulty, to get news up and running using Outlook Express version 6. I can succesfully post to newsgroups.
Also, I had an issue with Norton A/V 2005 not being able to run live update. To resolve this I disabled the software based firewall and like magic everything is fine.
Can anyone tell me how to:
- Determine if the firewall is blocking email ports
- How to correct this.
