Problems with POP3 and Outlook 2003

I have basically the same problem as this previous question stated:


But this question was never answered.

My situation is this I have 30 boxes all with Outlook 03 running getting their primary emails from our Exchange server on-site (no problems there). We have just purchashed a new domain and I have created 30 new email addresses that my users will be referencing using a new pop3 account through godaddy (hosting). Now heres the tricky part half work and half do not. The boxes that don't work give me the error of Task 'Email Account Name - Receiving' reported error (0x80040154) : 'Unknown Error 0x8004154'. These boxes have all had their OS installed about a year ago using a slipstream disc I had made. No problems with anything OS related until now. The boxes that do work have either been formatted with genuine XP disc or preshipped with OS already installed. I have tried all of the solutions stated from the post listed above but nothing helped. I have partitioned a drive on 1 of the 15 that dont work and reinstalled from XP disc, updated, and pop3 account works like a charm, but Im trying to avoid doing that with all the remaining boxes. I'm assuming that certain files have either become missing or corrupted utilizing my slipstream install, but I have no idea what they might be. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
