This error 0x800CCC0B can be broken down to 2 causes:
1.Incorrect POP settings (usually the SSL option for SMTP) – check with provider if it is required or not.
2.Firewall blocking ports (usually port 25) – could be 3rd party since Windows Firewall generally allows this port through, unless specifically told not to do so.
