    Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

    I am using Windows Mail on Vista and if I click on send or recieve then it will pop a window for username and password and when I type everything in it then the request will again come up. If I cancel this then it will give me error message that will say " Account: 'pop.wanadoo.co.uk', Server: 'pop.wanadoo.co.uk', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: 'Disconnect because authentication to back server is too long', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92. Is there any fix to this thing?

    You need to make sure that the password that you are entering is correct for the email account that you are using, for checking same go to Tools and then Accounts. Also confirm by checking your account settings with the email provider's support webpage on how do you setup an email account in Windows Mail or Outlook Express because both of them use the same settings. Also, if you have any antivirus such as Norton or Mcafee then remove it immediately because there is some conflict with this antivirus with the Windows Mail.

    Even I was having the same issue on my pc. I tried all suggestions given to fix this issue but nothing seem to work then finally I found a solution to this problem. When I went to this website - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/w...tart-to-finish - it suggested to use the following incoming server: pop.myisp.com and then I changed the address from mail.comcast.net to pop.comcast.net, since I was using Comcast and then both the outgoing and incoming servers work fine without any issues. Hope that this will work for others as well.

    I had this problem, too. Repeatedly asked to log in, with this error code. Simple problem = I was putting in my user name WITH the "@whatever.net". Once I put in user name WITHOUT this, problem went away.

    We were seeing this error on Outlook Express clients when they had a smartphone that also checked e-mail. In this case we were running a mailenable mail server on W2K3. The outlook client would work fine until the smartphone checked e-mail, then we get the errors above along with a password request over and over.

    Some troubleshooting revealed the mail server as the culprit. Recycling it fixed the problem everytime on the Outlook client. We found that setting the timeout for remote mail servers down to 180 seconds from the default 1000 in mail enable fixed the problem. Both of these phones were on the sprint pcs network. Not sure on the process used by the smartphones to check e-mail but they must act as a forwarding server somehow, rather than a client.

    The error message you are getting is also a standard error that you get if your mail server that is the ISP is not operating properly. There is little you can do if that is the case, just wait for the ISP to correct the problem at their end. Contact them in any regards, and see if they are aware of the problem.
