    For two days now I haven't been able to send or receive any emails.

    I have contacted BT who are no help whatsoever! It is becoming increasingly

    Every time I try and send or receive mail the following message appears

    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for
    this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of
    inactivity. Account: '', Server: '',
    Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error
    Number: 0x800CCC0F

    Have tried the other things already mentioned in other answers!
    Please help!

    It may be Anti virus software... which do you use?

  3. We've seen this problem before with GoDaddy's
    Some older servers get confused by Vista's autotuning feature.
    1. Click on the Vista start orb and type cmd
    2. The search results will display a program named cmd.exe
    3. Right-click on the link and select "Run as administrator"
    4. After the command prompt window opens, type
    "netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled" without
    the quotation marks, then press Enter.
    5. Test your POP account and see if you can download your mail now.
    6. If nothing changes, re-enable the autotuning feature by typing
    "netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=normal"

    Hope this helps.

  5. Email scanning should be turned off in any anti-virus. Also exclude EML
    files from the scan. It provides no
    protection not provided by the regular resident protection.
    Besides that, McAfee and Norton are not compatible with Windows Mail and
    Outlook Express and should be uninstalled. The latest version of Trend's
    anti-virus seems to be causing problems too.
