Hi Experts,

This problem has been keep on bothering me for quite sometimes. The scenario begin like this...

I've install a MS Outlook client on a server to received/send internet email and it doesn't has any connection with my Exchange server. Basically just Internet email.
Besides that, i have a program using CDO.dll to received/send email based on the MS Outlook. The problem is.... occasionally, all new emails failed to reach the Inbox. When we clcik on "Send/Received" button, it will take very very long to establish connection and after that an error prompt "Please specify the correct POP server....... ". Even though the POP server is correct and not down..... it will still failed to recieved. and the current solution is ... i need to close and reopen MS Outlook then it works properly.

Anyone encounter this kind of problem before?
Experts... plz share your ideas with me...thanks.
