connecion to the server is lost due to sever or network problems. If this problem
persists, contact your admininstrator.

What is the meaning of "pop server error number 0x80040403" ?
Road Runner Tech Support did not know!
Where can you get the secret decoder ring or link for this error number?
I suspected the outlook.pst file (size 1.1 GB) and tried Scanpst.exe which did not handle the problem.
A three month old backup of outlook.pst did work, but I don't like loosing that much of my traffic.
Outlook Express 6 on another computer also did retrieve this uncollected mail to it's Inbox.dbx file.
What to do next?
