    Just installed a VM under win7 and everything working fine but for email
    retieval with OE or OL

    Retrieval very slow and usually fails with error:

    A time-out occurred while communicating with the server. Account: ' XXX,
    Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC19

    it has retrieved the occasional message which makes me think settings are ok
    and internet connection speedy browsing and downloading so don't think thats
    the prob

    no virus or f/wall s/ware running

    server is ok with OL outside of VM and webmail access works fine.

    Any ideas?

    TIA

  2. Does other networking work correctly? (like browsing the web, etc...)

    sorted it thanks

    seemed the virtual pc was using a different version of the network card. set
    it to same as host pc in settings and all seems fine.

    Everything else other than pop3 was working fine though!

    When I try to send/receive from OE in XP mode under Win 7, it doesn't connect to the server. I get this error.
    The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'MSN server', Server: 'pop3.live.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Internet access from IE within XP mode works just fine. Thunderbird and IE8 under Win 7 works. What do I need to change to use OE within XP Mode?

  5. Check your User Name and Password and the server ports under Tools | Accounts | Mail | Properties | Advanced and verify that they are correct. OE can connnect without problems, so your issue is likely due to improper settings.
