error message with mail
« on: August 19, 2011, 01:12:13 AM »

Ever since I installed norton 360 the other day, my windows mail program was working ok for a day or so, but now I keep getting an error message 0x80004005. I cant send or receive wont even load what is in my inbox, but is loading all other folders I have within my email account :(

I tried to restore using restore point prior to install, didnt work.
Tried dos prompt of sfc /scannow - didnt work

I was going to uninstall and reinstall Nortons....would this help?

Before I go fiddling some more and stuffing things up more.....does anyone have any idea how to fix this??

I'm running vista home edition..


P.S Hi to everyone...been a while since I was here....all is well with us! Kids are now 5.5yrs  :thud: and going so well!!

Not sure if this should be a permanent solution, but, this could be something to try and see if it clears things up (if this is even an option in Norton 360).

You receive the "0x80004005 : The operation failed" error message when you receive new e-mail messages in Outlook

OT:  Hi, Deb.  I managed to hook up with Mel on Facebook and even received an indirect message from Cannymum on my birthday!  Such a treat!
