I can send email but not receive it.  This started about 3 days ago out of the blue.  to my knowledge, no changes were made to my computer.

Here is the error code:  Task '(my email address) - Receiving' reported error (0x80004005) : 'The operation failed.' 

I am using MS Outlook 2007  and Vista for Business (service pack 2).  I am not using Norton. 

can anyone help?  thanks.
