Hi, there. Since this morning, I can't receive any emails on my Windows Live Mail 2011 on my laptop. I have a yahoo.co.uk email address and, fortunately can receive emails via yahoo on the internet, but I find that really user unfriendly. I can send emails. The error message I get is 0x800ccc0E Socket Error 10060. Is there any sort of quick fix for this? Really hoping someone will be able to help. I haven't found google searches to be very useful sad
TIA

Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes
Socket Error: 10060

Go into yahoo and check the pop settings are correct.
Mine just stopped working a couple of weeks ago and when I finally checked the settings the were different.
I hadn't changed my laptop....so presumably yahoo has changed them? They did have access issues a few weeks ago so I thought it was connected this that.

Ta. Have changed from POP to IMAP now and that seems to have done the trick.... I hope!
