Setting up server email account, can send but can't receive email?

Q: Setting up server email account, can send but can't receive email?

Hi, firstly please bear with me as i'm new to this. I'm trying to setup the email on our virtual server through cpanal and using Thunderbird 3 (although i did try it with Outlook 2007 and the same results.)

Using the given Incoming and Outgoing mail server info given (mail.domain.co.uk) and the mail server username, I get a failed to find error (using both POP3 and IMAP). If I change that too the SSL settings for Incoming / Outgoing (serverusername.miniserver.com), it works and autofinds Connection Security as STARTTLS and finds the ports too. With this I can send emails fine, but I am not getting incoming emails, and I don't know enough about it too see what I'm doing incorrect, any help would be great, thanks.

I posted this on yahoo answers first, but the only response I got was "restart your outloook and try later." *facepalm* Glad to have found a place more dedicated to such problems.

Hi, I hope someone can help.

I've been using a virgin.media email account with Windows Live Mail for years without any problems, but today, whenever I try to send/receive mail, I get the following message:

"Unable to send or receive messages for the Virginmedia account. The connection to the server has failed.

Server: 'pop3.virginmedia.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes
Socket Error: 10061"

I've read a few similar forum posts and it looks as though some settings might outdated or need altering, but I have no idea which ones to change. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello - I have a problem with sending email. I have an XP SP2 machine with Symantec Client Firewall and I use Outlook 2000 and Cox as my ISP. I have verified the SMTP and POP3 settings for Outlook and they're OK. I can receive email but can't send it. I do get a "Service Monitor Alert" from Symantec that says, "Symantec Client Firewall has detected one or more services are disabled and should be restarted. Please restart the system to restore the failed services listed below: Symantec Common Client HTTP Proxy." I think it might be an issue with the firewall but am not sure. Can anyone give me any suggestions on what to look for? Thank you - TechGirlAZ

A:Can't Send Email but Can Receive Email

Hi; I've read through posts but I didn't seem to find anything pertinent. My office has created new email accounts for everyone, and I've set mine up on my laptop using Microsoft Office Outlook. I've been using an aol screenname to send/receive emails. I'd like to have my emails that are incoming to my AOL account automatically forward to my new email account for reading (maybe temporarily, maybe permanently), while I am in the process of notifying all my correspondents of the change.

Any way to set up AOL to automatically forward my incoming messages, or to set up Microsoft Office Outlook to import them automatically? Or, is there no way?

Also, any easy way to ensure that, if I read my emails on another webmail viewer like roundcube, squirrelmail or horde (three options allied with the agency that is re-doing our website), that my emails will still come up on my Microfsoft Office Outlook email list?

Thank you all! Suzanne

Good evening Susan
I googled your question and here is a link to what I think is an answer for you.

As to saving emails, set your accounts up to leave the message on the server.

I set up a frends laptop using Outlook Express. First time I tried emailing all was well. He took thhe computer home and could receive but not send. Both incoming and outgoing SMTP are correct. I tried everything I knew to do.

A couple of days later I decide to download Thunderbird. It too worked the very first time used then the identical thing happened - I can receive but not send. I am totally stumped!

Incoming is Alltel.net (mail.alltel.net). Outgoing is Cingular wireless (cwmx.com).

I need to get this resolved quick. Please help!

Thanks a bunch -- Mark

A:Email - Can receive but not send

Not sure if you verify this already, but this is the common issue when a user can receive but not send emails.

Make sure 'My Server Requires Authentication' option is checked located at the Server tab when you:
Open OE, Tools, Accounts, Mail Tab, Highlight / Select the account and Click on Properties.

Hi, I know this post is very similar to some other ones in this category. I read them all and even tried 2 suggestions but they didn't help. I haven't been able to send or receive email (except one time this afternoon it worked...?? don't ask me how) through Outlook Express. Here are the messages that would pop up when the attempt failed:
The host 'SMTP' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'SMTP', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

You might want to try contacting your Internet provider first and see what they say. When did this start happening?

If they can't help you, I would print out your address book, Than go under Tools/Accounts, and DELETE the account that you are having trouble with receiving mail. Than close OE, wait several seconds and follow the New Account Wizard to recreate the account. (If this is your only account by default, you'll go through the Wizard again anyway.) The good news is that your address book contacts should still be there, but with a print out, the worst case, is that you'll have to do your address book contacts over again. I had this issue years ago, (without the error message) but where I wasn't getting any mail, and recreating the account solved the problem.

Other options: Download and install Mozilla's Thunderbird E-mail program, and it will automatically import all of your contacts and settings from OE. Switch to a free web-based e-mail service, Yahoo Mail now has unlimited storage, great spam protection, automatic virus scanning and cleaning. Gmail from Google is also very good. Even Hotmail might help. There are also ways that you can set up each of these programs so that your Contacts can carry over. Specifics depend on the type of program you choose.

For approx the last 6 years my OS has been Vista and I use Windows Mail . Since March 2011 my ISP has been BTinternet. Everything was fine until about 10 days ago when suddenly I could not send or receive email.

I have a broadband account (with BTinternet); I have no dial-up accounts. My system is set to “never dial a connection”. But now, when I click Send/Receive my computer attempts to dial a connection using WAN PPPOE (and fails, of course.)

Attempts to solve this by using Btinternet’s “Broadband desktop help” get nowhere as that finds my broadband connection and says it is fine, but it also finds a dial-up connection to a Tiscali account that I had at least 15 years ago, long before I bought my present system. There is no dial-up account on my present system. The Bt desktop help suggests contacting Tiscali to deal with this but that is impossible because I no longer recall my password from 15 years ago and the alternative method of logging-in at Tiscali asks for the server I used when I signed up for that account – I did not have a server at the time; I “joined” by using a disk that connected me to Tiscali.

Can you suggest a solution to my problem, please?
I’m doing all my emailing via Webmail at the moment because I can still connect to the Internet. But that is not long-term solution and it is driving me mad!

First off, thank you so much for this great site. It's perfect for dummies who have questions to have "The Pros" at hand to help, thank you thank you thank you!! Here's my problem:
I logged on to the internet and my connection was normal; I also opened Outlook Express 6 to check my email and was able to receive email, but couldn't SEND; it would freeze and when I'd close the box, a message: PROGRAM IS NOT RESPONDING appeared. I never got an error report like it tried to send it, it just froze. I deduced that I needed more disk space, because I only had 36% free (I'm using XP). I rebooted, I deleted 100 document files, 30 photos, did a disk cleanup, defrag, unplugged my cable modem, called my ISP (Charter) and McAfee. Since I could send and receive email via web-based email Charter said it wasn't their fault. I uninstalled my McAfee Firewall and Virus Scan and tried to send an email, but still froze, so McAfee they said it wasn't their fault.
Do you think my Outlook Express is corrupt and can I just download a new version? What will I lose, other than my address book (which I saved today under another file) and currently saved documents in my INBOX? I'd rather not reinstall OE if I can help it, as I have many many files saved in many folders I've created. Maybe I should throw some of them out too???

Thank you.

I have several email accounts setup in my OE account, and all of them send and receive fine, except my email account for my domain. With that account, I can receive email, but not send. And it hasn't always been this way, it just started doing this a few weeks ago.

More times than none the problem is at the mail server.
Go to the Cox website and send from your email account that they have online. If they dont have one you may have to wait. This happens to everyone.

If its time senstive
Open an account with Gmail and send from there You will have to check if for responses however or you can tell them to answer to your Cox account.

A:Can receive email but can't send

I had the same problem initially when I set up my OE e-mail.
I had to define as incoming pop3 with smtp-server outgoing.
I was still periodically getting that message when composing and sending and I found this article.
I consequently changed check for new messages to 2 minutes and have not had an occurrence since.
Heres the article. It may give you a lead.
Usually this is due to the pop-before-relay software on the server. "What is the pop-before-relay software?" You may be asking. Pop-Before-Relay validates Pop3 Email users
before relaying email traffic through the server.
The process validates email users when they log on and check their email. It remembers each user for fifteen minutes, before it needs to be validated again.
If you see a message similar to this:

The connection to the server has failed. account: 'server.com', Server:
'mail.server.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10051, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

You may need to re-validate your account by logging on and receiving your email again. Since you probably saw this message because you were trying to send an email,
the following process in Outlook Express should re-validate your account.
In Outlook Express:
1. Click on the little tab on the edge of the Send and Receive button on the menubar of Outlook Express.
2. Choose "Receive All"
3. This will log on to the server and re-validate you as a user.

This started a week or so ago. Nothing had been changed but I started getting an error when trying to send emails from Outlook. The error I get is as follows:

Task 'pop.att.yahoo.com - Sending and receiving' reported error (0x800CCC0F) The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or internet service provider (ISP).

I called AT&T and they went over my settings which I have checked and rechecked and that I could send email when logged in on the webmail, which I can, and then wanted to send me to a pay department for dealing with outlook.

When I've verified the settings, I've clicked the 'test account settings' button and it sometimes fails but other times the test completes correctly, but then if I try and send an actual email, I get the error message again.

problems like this can sometimes be caused by malware, you say you cant find any viruses but just to be sure pop over to the security and the web section and take a read, as email doesnt rely on the HTTP protocol to recieve mail, it could be something along those lines.

I use MS Office XP. Within this software I use Outlook for my email. I receive my email through Optonline on Line. In the past I was able to open my Outlook in box, click on the Send/Receive button and all my eamil stored at Optonline would transfere to Outlook. When I try to do this now I receive a message that reads "Task'mail.optonline.net- Sending and Receiving' reported error (08004210A0) : The operation timed out waiting for a responce from the receiving (POP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service proviver.

I spoke with Optonline tech support and they said my setup in Outlook was correct and perhaps I should reintall the Microsoft Office XP Professional software or run the repair software in the XP Office software. I ran the repair/fix software but this did not help.

Can anyone offer a suggestion. If I do reinsatll the Office software will I loose all my contacts. If I do have to reintall Offcie is there a way I can save my contacts, I must have over one hundred names and other information?

A:Unable to send or receive email

You can export your contacts to a .pst file for re-importing once you reinstall office. Go to your contacts and from the file menu, choose import/export. There will be a few steps to follow, but should be self explanatory. Just remember what you name the file and where it saves to on your computer. Once you reinstall office, go back to the contacts section, and choose import/export again from the file menu. Then import your address book back in.

Here is a link to a microsoft article that discusses exporting contacts:

Good luck, hope this helps you troubleshoot your Outlook issue.

I am using outlook 2010 with an exchange server and working online. I would like to be able to send a receive at regular interval. I have checked the "Schedule an automatic send/receive every 30 minutes" box and still doesn't work. Thinking my outlook is damaged I asked a few more people in my office to do the same and they have the same problem. Anyone else run into this and if so have you found a solution?

A:email send/receive at interals

I guess you're aware that Outlook must be left running for that feature to work?

I am using OE. For the past 2 days when I attempt to download my email I get the following error message:

"Some errors occurred while processing the requested tasks. Please review the list of errors below for details." Then it proceeds to list the following:

"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problem, network problem, or a long period of inactivity. Accout, 'pop.west.cox.net', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port 110, Secure (SSL): No, Error Number 0x800CCC0F"

What's interesting, though, is that although I can't receive I can compose and send email OK. I can also obtain my email via webmail. Any suggestions?

I recently switched from using Outlook Express to Outlook. I imported all folders and current emails that were in Outlook Express. However I don't receive any new emails. Everytime I want new email from my Optonline account I have to go to Tools/Send/Receive and it will then receive all new emails from the Optonline account.

What am I doing wrong? What do I need to change in order to get the new emails to Outlook automatically when I open Outlook?



A:Can send email but can't receive in Outlook

I use OE but I bet that if you open Outlook, click on Tools > Options in the general section there are boxes you can check concerning sending/recieving mail like in Outlook Express, aren't there?

Hello. in Windows live, in the inbox, the "Date" and "Sent" date is almost always the same, even if the mail was written hours or days before receipt of the message. Why does the inbox not show the date that the mail was sent from the senders machine ?? They are sometimes a few seconds differant, I presume this may be something to that happens if download takes a longer time.
Thank you

I am trying to send email, but I keep getting a server time out. I can receive email just fine. I have tried it using the latest OE and the latest Thunderbird and get the same response. Also, I am running XP SP2.

I can send a one word email just fine. Anything over about 10 characters won't send. My network guy where the server is says it is a time out, but he says the timeout on the server end is 5 minutes.

I have tried with a different account from my machine, and its a no-go. I have tried from other email accounts on other computers and it works fine, so it must be my machine.

Any ideas out there? I'm stumped.

Thanks for your help in advance.

I was/am a Bellsouth DSL customer, recently taken over by AT&T. AT&T made an upgrade to our homepage/email a while back. I finally actually completed my end of the changeover/upgrade last week (even though we had been notified/offered it awhile ago). Since the night I did it, I am not receiving my email into my Outlook XP (2002) client. I am still sending just fine, and when I connect for a send/receive it goes through the steps of receiving and then says "receive complete" even though nothing came into my inbox. If I view my email through the website, it is all there, as testament that it was not successfully downloaded (and thus deleted from the server). I do not get an error message.
I tried troubleshooting it a bit last night and on the Bellsouth/AT&T DSL support site there is a set of instructions about this. It entails changing the Outlook settings (changing pop and smtp servers and a couple of other settings). I did this, and it does not help. In fact, after changing the settings, I actually get error messages about not being able to login to my email servers.
The help site also references a patch for Outlook and provides a link to microsofts download site, but when I get there, and choose my version of outlook, there is no new patch there.
Not sure if it matters or helps, but the AT&T mail is associated with Yahoo and I previously had a Yahoo account (for Groups, not email). When I did the "upgrade" it made me setup a new account.... Read more

Mauri (Greetings) All,

I've used 2 email clients for the past several months without errors in sending/receiving, but ever since, after installing MS Office Update via Windows Update yesterday morning, both my email clients just can't send/receive mails till now.

I use: MS Outlook 2007 for 2 gmail addresses; and DreamMail for my official email address.

Any tips and/or comment will be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to set up my msn.com email addresses in outlook 2007. (Ironically they set up fine in Entourage.) I don't want to use the connector program, as it receives mail in a separate folder, and I'd rather keep my email together in one inbox. I've set the proper settings for both receiving and sending, but I can neither send nor receive. Any ideas? Thanks very much.

Here at the doctor's office I work at, all of a sudden last Thursday, a prompt came up asking us to put our login credentials for our email upon sending an email, which is NEVER does. The user name and password was all saved, so we just clicked OK. Our email addresses are all different and all end with @ourofficename.com, which is using a Verizon.net server.

Now, on multiple computers, everybody can still RECEIVE email, but nobody can SEND email. This is through Windows Live Mail and Outlook Express on both Windows XP and Windows 7. The exact error reads as follows:

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

Subject 'test'
Server: 'smtp.verizon.net'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: SMTP
Port: 465
Secure(SSL): No

I have attempted to change the outgoing server port to 465, 995, 993, to no avail. I have also updated the server from outgoing.Verizon.net to smtp.Verizon.net. It does not help.

To convolute matters more, we are not entirely sure of our password... :-D

If anybody could shine some light on this issue, the doctor's and I would be very appreciative. Thank you so much.
