Email not working again?

Getting no joy through Outlook at the moment - keep getting the usual: "Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server"

Has the PlusNet Pile of Bile crashed again, or is it just my connection?

There are no reported problems at the moment, do you receive an error message or reference along with that text?

The error code with the message is 0x80042108 - many thanks.

@simon, I tend to get the same about twice each week - a reboot of my laptop generally fixes the connection. Rebooting my router has no effect - I've put this down to a Norton AV quirk and wouldn't bother reporting anything unless a reboot doesn't start the mail flow again.

This problem is usually resolved by either turning off anti-virus scanning on email or by recreating the mail account in Outlook.

Thanks, Jeremy and Mand. Norton is turning into the bane of my life. I apologise to the PlusNet mail server for being mean to it Smiley
