Windows Mail stops sending and receiving

I have had Windows Mail on my system for 2 years now and suddenly it's started having problems with sending and receiving mail. This is not 100% of the time, but intermittent - it's been ok for all day for example but now it's failing to connect and is coming up with the error message 0x800CC13.

My iPhone is thankfully still downloading mail in the interim so I don't think this is a server issue.

I'm using Windows Vista and this may be coincidence but I'm sure this has only started happening since the latest Windows update....

Any / all advice would be welcome, I'm using Windows Mail for work and this is really proving a bugbear.

Many thanks!
