    ok this is VERY weird.

    the other day i started getting this error from ONE email account.

    But all my other accounts at the same domain arent getting this error, after a couple days of testing and trying to figure this out, updrading exim, restarting cppop about a million times. etc.. etc.. the list goes on.

    I GOT IT TO WORK, but couldnt receive mail!!!! So i remove the account and re-add it, now im getting the original error yet again!

    So i added a test account, set it up in outlook NO problems.

    Anyway, its like something is blocking this email-user-name.. i suppose? :(

    I just cant figure it out, the error im getting on microsoft.com it says to disable norton email scanner to fix it.

    I dont have Norton or any other viruse scanner that scans incoming and outgoing emails. :)


    Im at a loss. Makes no sense.

    any help appreciated,
    fusion

    oh btw, this just came out of the blue for no reason.. worked fine for the last 6 months. Nothing was upgraded/installed/changed before the error.

    whizkid posted this in another thread, and it works!!!!!!!!


    Great news! I've been able to fix this on my box... here is what I did:

    -) Run outlook, download all mail.
    -) Delete the mail box via CPANEL
    -) SSH in to the box
    -) SU -
    -) cd /home/domainusername/mail/domainname
    -) deltree -f affectedmailboxusername
    -) recreate the mailbox in CPanel.

    Presto!

    Lemme know how it worked out for you!

    Webmail is always an option, no?

    As for the initial problem, time-outs usually mean there was a connection problem, either along the way to the Server or the Server was (at that moment) being heavily taxed and couldn't handle the request.

    Waiting for a bit and trying again should be the first thing one does.

    How do you download the saved-mail and sent-mail folders via Webmail into Outlook? :confused:

    I suppose it shouldn't take more than a day to forward 1000+ emails one at a time to Outlook. :D
