How come I get error 0x800CCC0F when trying to send email from Outlook?

by on May 2, 2011

Q: Recently my Outlook Express stopped sending emails. I receive emails OK but cannot send any. The error message is 0x800CCC0F. I have had Big Pond tech login to my computer and check configuration etc but found nothing wrong. Their advice was that it was my Trend Micro blocking the messages but no changes have been made to Trend Micro settings. Can you advise what steps I should now take to correct?

    I think they are probably correct with Trend Micro causing the problem. I’ve found some other posts of people experiencing the same issues. They’ve also found that the blocking sometimes gets turned on automatically after the Trend Micro software updates with new virus definitions.

    In Trend Anti-Virus try unchecking Mail Monitors and see if that resolved your issues.
