    I am using Windows Vista with Windows Mail and logged in this morning and
    clicked send/receive and it came up with this message:

    An unknown error has occurred. Account: 'Chris @ Home', Server:
    'mail.btinternet.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error
    Number: 0x80004005

    How can I get rid of it? I have uninstalled Nortons Internet Security and it
    still happens. Please help.

    Thanks

  2. The 0x80004005 error is usually a result of a corrupted message
    structure on the server.
    In your browser go to your provider's webmail portal and log in.
    Then clean out all the folders in your webmail. If you want to save
    any messages, create a new folder and move those messages to the
    new folder. Empty the spam and thrash folders also. Close webmail,
    then try Windows Mail again.

    I too am having problems lately with sending emails. I am getting similar
    error messages. What is going on? How do I correct?

    I have done what you said and although the email send/receives, it doesn't download any messages so I sent a test message and suddenly it doesn't work again.

    What could it be?

    It is the same with my emails. I cannot get rid of one to British Gas and now
    every message I send goes into outbox instead of being sent. I have had 2
    sessions with BT Broadband help service and been to 2 E.T. shops but no-one
    can get rid of this message. Please help.

    I'm getting this message when I hit 'send/receive'. Not sure why it is
    happening, never happened before. I am unable to send or receive any emails.
    Please help!

    "The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.blueboxgrid.com',
    Server: 'mail.blueboxgrid.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No,

  9. After uninstalling Norton, you need to completely remove your mail account and then close and reopen WinMail and set it up again. Norton screws up the account settings and that will fix them.
