Synchronizing - "Too many simultaneous connections from 22.214.171.124"
Posted on 2004-11-19
Outlook 2002, SP3
One of my email accounts keeps giving me this error message:
Task 'Mail_account - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC90) : 'Your incoming (POP3) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: ??RR Too many simultaneous connections from 126.96.36.199'
Sometimes messages don't download upon synchronization but eventually they do. The address, "188.8.131.52", translates to "user-11216s0.dsl.mindspring.com". My ISP and DSL provider is Earthlink. I have an onoing conversation with their tech support but it doesn't seem to be leading me anywhere.
An interesting fact is that one of the three computers on our home network does not exhibit this behavior. The two do.
