When sending emails from Outlook express i get the following error message;

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection.  Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.  Account 'gemma@gpc568.com', Server: 'mail.gpc568.com', Protocol: SMPT, Port 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F.

I am able to receive emails but when i try to send i get this message.  I am able to send email from this address using the web based control pannel for the GPC568.COM website.
Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem?

It may also be your antivirus software. Try to disable your antivirus software temorarily and see if you still have the issue.

This link explains how to do that as well.

I had the same problem: 0x800CCC0F. I could receive but not send email.

Turns out I was listed in the PBL (policy black list) of spamhaus.org

Removed my IP- adres en I could send mail again.
