I seem to be getting this error more and more often. I've tried for 2 hours tonight and still get the same error:
"Task 'my email@example.com - Receiving' reported error (0x8004210A) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the receiving (POP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP)." I have restarted Outlook several times and have restarted the modem. Any suggestions on how to resolve this ?
Note: Using both IMAP and POP simultaneously or POP across multiple devices can cause connection/mail synchronization error messages when trying to send, receive or access new email such as the following:
“The mail server denied access to your account because another mail client was using it.”
To avoid these errors we recommend using IMAP on all devices.
POP and IMAP are two different email protocols used to access your email account.
Outgoing Server – SMTP port: 587*
* Note: If you are able to receive, but not send, emails while on your mobile device, you'll need to use your mobile carrier's outgoing SMTP server and port.
