I can't receive email through Outlook

Message 1 of 3
(6,783 Views)

I am having  a problem receiving incoming mail on Outlook. I can send but not receive. I have not done anything to my settings. I got an error message yesterday afternoon and I am still getting it today.  " Task incoming.verizon.net - receiving reported error 0x8004210A the operation timed out waiting for a response from the receiving POP server"

 

 I can access mail through the Verizon site but I really like using outlook.

 

Any help would be appreciated

I think I fixed the problem. I deleted the account that was giving me the error message in outlook. I deleted all the spam & junk mail off the account using the Verizon mail site. I added the account back to Outlook and everything seems to be working.
