    I posted the following in the Vista\Mail newsgroup, and have received no response. So I'm posting here, where the brains are.
    I ran the port query tool and got:
    =============================================
    Starting portqry.exe -n 127.0.0.1 -e 995 -p TCP ...

    Querying target system called:
    127.0.0.1

    Attempting to resolve IP address to a name...
    IP address resolved to xxxxx

    querying...

    TCP port 995 (pop3s service): NOT LISTENING
    portqry.exe -n 127.0.0.1 -e 995 -p TCP exits with return code 0x00000001.

    Same results for ports 25 and 110. So how do I fix this? I've tried adding these ports to the exceptions list in windows firewall. Windows mail is already in that list. I disabled the firewall, antivirus email scanning...
    None of that did anything. I keep getting

    The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'MSN', Server: 'pop3.email.msn.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    Help.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    Are you doing this with outlook? Outlook express?

    Did you try Eudora or Thunderbird? Perhaps it's a problem with the mail client.

    Your port 110, 995, 25 etc don't need to be open - they are the ports on the server. Your results are correct.
    I'm using Windows 7 - you got a problem with that?
