Outlook Express can't send or receive


Outlook Express can't send or receive

ATT of course won't support a client based email so we're out of luck.  The web interface works.  It will work on a different machine, but not the home computer.  I get the 0x0800CCC19 or 15 messages.  I've tried just about everything I know.  The settings are absolutely correct.  I've made sure email scanning is off and tried turning off the firewall.  I have seen there can be problems with the pop3uidl.dbx file and tried to rename that but OE doesn't create a new one.  Still can't send or receive.  Horribly frustrated.
