Hello  pitohec,

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.


We suggest to reconfigure your email account using the correct settings you can find on the link provided by Bruce Hagen.
