windows live mail incorrect password error message 0x800CCC90


  • I'm having some trouble receiving/sending emails. The botton doesn't work anymore, it will ask my password and my username but it will end up in a 0x800CCC90 fault.
    This problem is rather new from yesterday and hasn't solved itself today. Little discription:

    -ERR invalid username/password

    This is impossible, as I tested my username and password online. Now I do use windows live mail, but I have a pandora account.
    I also checked a lot of sites already to seek answers but received none.

    Several solutions which I don't understand or don't help:

    1. Multiple account/alliases ( I just have one?)
    2. antivirus, I tested to put it off (using norton 360 premier edition)
    3. tryed the prompt cmd thing with 'telnet 110', but cmd doesn't know the action (windows 7)
    4. checked server several times, changed them several times, unmarked some boxes which needed to be unmarked.. -> no success

    Could someone give me the answer :s?
