I ran the port query tool and got:
Starting portqry.exe -n 127.0.0.1 -e 995 -p TCP ...
Querying target system called:
Attempting to resolve IP address to a name...
IP address resolved to xxxxx
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
