OE Error # 0x800CCCOF

I am receiving the following error message, which I can temporarily remove
by doing maintenance scan and defrag, but only for a few days:
"Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
inactivity.
Account: (my account), Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No
Socket error: 10054, Error Number: 0x800CCCOF."

I have checked with the ISP and they supposedly are not at fault.
What specifically might be causing this behavior?

Troubleshooting error messages that you receive when you are using OL and OE
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=813514

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It provides no
additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:

<paste>
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.

PA Bear:

That's simple enough, but Avast has specifically OE mail and others.
Since I don't have a problem with my other emails, it should suffice to just
disable OE, shouldn't it?
I thought I'd try this for a while and see what happens.
Thanks for your assistance.

Harry.

If you meant that using Avast you can choose to disable scanning in several
Mail Clients and that OE's one of them, yes, disabling only the OE option
should do it.

One of us didn't have their fingwers crossed, PA Bear.
That dreaded message is still there.
I'm just glad to be able to fix it, even though only temporarily.
Now we'll have to look into and explore the remaining possibilities in the
link from microsoft you provided.
Keep you posted.

Harry.

<sigh> Jeez, it's my day for OE and AV problems, it seems. (See thread
'Can't send/rec e-mail - ?reinstall?')

Your current Identity may have been damaged by Avast's previous settings
(especially if its the default Main Identity).

1. Try one or more of your mail accounts in a new Named Identity
(File>Identities>Add new identity).

NB: Make absolutely certain that Avast is not configured to scan
incoming/outgoing mail before running your first Send/Receive.

2. Assuming all is well, import messages from the old Identity before
deleting it (File>Identities>Manage Identities).

I don't have the courage to mess with my identity, PA Bear.
And don't think that that may be the case.
How can I determine if the identity change would be at fault?

Harry.

Creating and testing you account(s) in a new Named Identity is no big deal,
Harry. I *do* think your current identity has been damaged, especially if
it's the default one named 'Main Identity'.

The only way to determine if the current identity is corrupt is to try the
account(s) in a new Named Identity as I explained. NB: Do not rename the
'Main Identity' and do not give the new identity the name 'Main Identity'.

With email scanning disabled from the get-go, if the problem doesn't persist
in the new Named Identity, just import your folders* from the old 'Main
Identity' (http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/how.htm#importOE5) and then delete
'Main Identity' (File>Identities>Manage identities).

Just do it. I promise it won't hurt. <w>

* Two suggestions before importing folders into the new Named Identity:

1a. Move as many messages as possible out of Inbox and Sent Items and into
other Local folders.

1b. Delete the contents of Deleted Items folder.

1c. Compact all Main Identity folders
http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm#compact

2. You don't really need to import empty Inbox, Deleted Items, Outbox or
Sent Items folders.

Hi Harry,

For work on a new OE identity there is some helpful information in the
Microsoft KB.

OLEXP: How to Create and Use Identities in Outlook Express 5.x and 6.0

PA Bear:

Before I go ahead and change my identity, I have a question:

Thanks for your patience.

Harry.

Hi Harry,

Temporarily change your name! There isn't a need to take the instruction
literally. Give the identity any name that is appropriate (for you).


1. In the Type your name box, type a name for the identity.

PA Bear:

Before I go ahead and change my identity, I have a question:
My default identity was not my name, but a pseudo identity.
Must I use my real name for the new identity, or can I choose any?
Thanks for your patience.

Harry.

You can use any friendly name you wish for a new identity. Call it Identity
One, Identity Two, Webster Mail, Test Mail or anything else you desire. But
any accounts you create in the new identity must be set up correctly with a
correct username, password and appropriate settings for the POP3 and SMTP
server.

That is really important information you supply here, thanks.
Definitely will keep in touch until this thing is resolved.
Glad I held off a little with my final action.
Thank you very much.

What Jim said.

You can use any name you want.

Do not delete the "pseudo identity" until you've gotten all of its folders
imported into the new Named Identity and you confirm that none are missing.

I'm almost ready to go ahead, PA Bear.
Thanks for all the good advice. I definitely need it.
With a bit of luck I should be able to manage.

PA Bear, Jim and everyone:

As embarrassing as this may be, but I may not have to change my identity
after all for the simple reason, the fault was in my configuration, without
me realizing. Under User Information I had entered a different name for my
mail and news. Once I synchronized those two, the error message stopped
appearing. Hope it stays this way.
If it shouldn't, I'll let you know.
Thank you all.

Harry.

PA Bear:

I still get this termination message every once in a while. Don't know what
prompts it, but by shutting down and restarting it disappears again.
Probably an indication that the problem is still there and I'll have to do
the things you recommended, unless you have another solution.
Will let you know when things are straightened out.
Thanks again.

Harry.

Again, test the account in a new Named Identity, Harry. Do *not* enable
scanning of outgoing or incoming mail by your anti-virus application.

It may take you all of 2 minutes to create the new identity and to set up
your account in it.

If all is well in the new identity, it may take you all of another 2 minutes
to import folders from the old identity into the new one.

It will take you all of 2 seconds to delete the old one.
