POP3 80042108 Error receiving emails and accessing website

Posted on 2009-05-01

Last week we stopped receiving emails to our pop3 related email address.  The error 80042108 tells me that outlook cannot connect to your incoming email server.
I have spent the passed 2 days trying all the solutions on the web i can find - I have reinstalled office, reinstaled explorer turned antivus on and off a million times- to no avail.

 i can still receive my emails on another pc usings the same specifications.  this seems to be localised to my domain/pop3 account/server on my pc as i also cannot access my website either, which is available on everyone else i know pc.

Is it possible for my pc to have gotten a bug and attached itself to my pop/domain/server details just for my pc.

I am really a novice and dont have any idea what to do.

Any help is very much appreciated!!!
