Everything is configured correctly however after getting 50 megs of updates windows xp no longer lets me send email out whether it be through outlook express, or outlook from office xp, or netscape etc etc.. I am using windows XP professional and Office XP everything worked fine before the updates but now it recieves mail correctly but when I go to send it says 'Task 'pop-server - sending and recieving' Reported error (0x800CC0F); 'The connection to the server was interuppted. If this problem continues contact your server administrator or ISP.' Office XP won't let me remove it or reinstall it everytime I try the install program says not responding after 30 seconds. Norton and Mcafee say no virus and have latest updates and this is a fresh install on a fresh hardrive with only minimal programs installed. This all happened after I took the updates from Microsoft. Other computer on cable internet hub sends and recieves perfectly through WinME.
