Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Error Nu

  1. I am getting this error: "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the
    connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network
    problems, or a long period of inactivity. Error Number: 0×800CCC0F".
    I am connectiong to IMAPS mailbox. I have no antivirus software installed
    and no FW installed expect that integrated into Windows Vista.
    Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

  2. The basis of this error is that your computer (more specifically WLM) is
    having problems communicating with the IMAP server.
    Can you ping the IMAP server? Double check all your IMAP server
    configuration settings. Maybe you've misspelled the server name. Also check
    you're communicating on the right ports. For IMAP that should be port 25.

  3. Communication should by fine as it is happening quite randomly. I am able to
    receive and send emails. But sometimes WLM and WM are showing this annoying
    error. The only thing I can do in this situation is to restart WLM.

    By the way, IMAP is using port 193 and IMAPs is using port 993.

    Me too, I get the same message, but only since the day I set up Gmail on
    IMAP. This is irrespective of whether the focus is on a Gmail inbox or the
    "unread mail" folder.

    No idea.

    For IMAP that should be port 143. Port 25 is for SMTP.

    I have two IMAPS accounts, Gmail and Fastmail. Neither are having problems
    with server access. Of course, I am using Windows Live Mail 12.0.1601 under
    Windows MCE 2005, in case that would make any difference. No firewall except
    the native XP firewall.
