I received an error message in Outlook Express while I was sending emails. The error is "Unknown error 0x800CCC0B". I can't get rid of this one. The system works fine but the error message is appearing simultaneously as I work on Outlook. Can someone please help me?
Error 0x800CCC0B in Outlook Express
This is one of the most common problem faced by the outlook users, and fortunately one of the relatively easily solved.
Actually this problem starts when you try to send a mail using POP3 account, but your mail server requires the authentication SSL security. Like Gmail etc
To address this issue, please open outlook express, and navigate to tools – accounts
Now click on your account and click on properties
On the top, click on the tab marked “server”
Locate a box along with the notation “My server requires authentication”, check mark this box
Now close outlook express and then again start outlook express, and send a new message
The problem should be resolved
