Fix short timeout setting...

by karry.golden In reply to In Outlook Express I'm ge ...

The reason could be short timeout setting or password authentication option is enabled. To resolve the issue in Outlook Express, Open Outlook and navigate through-

Tools -> Accounts -> Mail -> Properties

Make sure 'Log on using Secure Password Authentication' option is not selected under Servers tab.

Now navigate to Advanced -> Server Timeouts, and change 'Server Timeouts' value to 2 minutes. Just apply the setting and click OK -> Close.

Now restart Outlook Express.

Hope, the issue has been resolved!

This problem might occur because Secure Password Authentication is enabled, or it may a result of a short timeout setting.

Try making the following changes:
• Click Tools > Accounts > Mail tab > Properties
• Under the Servers tab, ensure that “Log on using Secure Password Authentication” is not ticked
• Under the Advanced tab, under “Server Timeouts”, change the server timeout to 2 minutes
• Click Apply > OK > Close
• Restart Outlook Express
If you are still experiencing the issue after applying this fix you can try OE-Mail Recovery
