I have 5 accounts that I check through Windows Live Mail. 4 of them still work fine but I can no longer receive e-mail for my default account (it appears i can still send from it, though). The default account and 3 sub accounts are all through the same sbcglobal account so I would expect them to all behave the same. I am having the same problem on my PC which runs Windows Live Mail 2009 and my laptop which runs Windows Live Mail 2011. I have been using Windows Live mail on both machines for years. The problem just started on both yesterday.
Here are the actual error messages:
Unable to send or receive messages for the Sbcglobal (emjesleese) account.
Server Error: 0x800CCC90
Server Response: -ERR inactivity timeout
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800420CD
Unable to send or receive messages for the Sbcglobal (emjesleese) account. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Any help resolving this issue would be much appreciated. Thank you!
