I am using Dial-UP with Outlook Express and always Outlook Express - Server Error Getting ATT Email ,when any email is 100KB or larger in size? So, Why ???
I have to go to At&T Web Mail and delete the 100kb or larger email and then can go back to Outlook Express and it will read the remaining emails. .... How to fix this ???

Hi, I also have the same problem as you. I started having the problem back on June 25th. I am on dial-up access and use Outlook 2000 for my email client. The error number I receive is 0x800ccc0f, meaning the connection was unexpectedly terminated. I assume your also receive error number 0x800ccc0f. Like you, I've noticed any email bigger than roughly 150kb is a problem. I am performing extensive research on this issue but have not found the solution yet. I suspect AT&T/Yahoo email management has made changes on their end. Specifically, I read that any new AT&T email account created after June 11, 2012 can only be accessed via the web; email clients (such as Outlook Express and Outlook 2000) are not allowed with these new email accounts.

1. Does the above apply only to Free email Accounts ? I am paying monthly for Dial-up access with email ? ... Where did you read this ?
2. I have to take note of the error number next time.

Got the Error again. Stuck on reading an html formatted newsletter of 75KB this time.
Error number is sane as you got 0x800ccc0f.
Have you phoned at&t tech support to report it ? if so, what did they say ?

JosephB_1, no, I have not phoned AT&T tech support to report this problem.
In reading through the posts in this forum, you will quickly see many, many people are having problems using their email client software (such as Microsoft Outlook Express and Microsoft Outlook 2000) to download and access their email from AT&T. Based on everything I've read and done, I strongly suspect the problem resides on the AT&T/Yahoo! email server side. As you may know, within the past two years, AT&T outsourced its email management to Yahoo. Prior to Yahoo!, I never experienced any email problems in over 15 years with AT&T. I have used AT&T since 1995.

When I first had this problem, I think 6 months ago, I had called ATT phone support and their solution was to have me delete the "large" email ( 100 KB) and basically said that an issue with the server is being fixed and that going forth it won't happen again, in the future. But, it acctually has happend many times after that and I just ended up un-subscribing to large newsletters sent in html format.
I know if call agian, they will just say delete the large email, but that does *not* solve the problem going forth because you should be able to get a newsletter of 100kb, its not that large. And, now I have newsletters that I want sent to me that are about 100 KB.
I don't have the time to spend getting frustrated on a phone call at this point. I hope, ATT Tech Support Staff are reading this forum and just fix the mail server problem that seems to be effecting multiple users. It seems many loyal long tiime users are all getting the same error code and getting frustrated and they will start to lose them.
