I am using Outlook to check a POP3 Mail account as well as Exchange. Exchange works fine, but when it checks the pop account I get the following error:

Task ' - Sending and Receiving' reported error
(0x80004005) : 'The operation failed.'

I had already tried setting the password again but that didn't work.  Any ideas?
