POP3 ansSMTP server time outs using Office 2003 Outlook



  • 1. Signatures Didn't Transfer From Outlook 2003 to 2007
    I just upgraded from Outlook 2003 to 2007. When I go to Tools / Options / Mail Format / Signatures my Signatures that used to be in Outlook 2003 are not there. ("Select signature to edit" box is blank.) That would not be so bad, but if I hit "New" and try to create a Signature, using the same name as one of the Signatures I used to have in Outlook 2003, I get the following message: "The name you entered is already in use. Choose a different name." (Even though the "Select signature to edit" box is blank.) Any thoughts? -- Steve

My ISP reckons this is a known Outlook bug that should be fixed by office 
Service Pack 3, but after a week of frustration, and doing what I am told, I 
still get the following errors, 0x800CCC15, 0x8004210A, 0x8004210B.  The Big 
Pond webmail seems to work fine and all the e-mail account settings were 
checked with the their technical support.  I applies the registry change 
recommended in the particular hotfix, but that made no difference.  It was 
working fine until a week ago, although it would send multiple copies of 
300kb e-mails to addressees.  The sending seemed to fail before the receiving.

Do you have any security products (e.g. antivirus, firewall, antispam, .etc) 
installed that can scan pop3/imap e-mail as it is sent/received?  The reason 
that I ask is that these programs act as a middle man between the mail 
client and server and can introduce some weird behavior.

Just so you know, what I usually suggest to folks to troubleshoot is:
1) Does this same behavior happen in Outlook Express?

2) Can you remove the security products and just run a Windows XP (SP2) with 
the Windows firewall on and then try the mail program again?

Thanks, Neo,
I have disabled Trend Micro with no change.  This morning I ran the test 
e-mail settings successfuly, but still received a time out error.
Outlook Express seems to have disappeared from my list of programs, so I am 
relying on webmail until I can Outlook to work.
