Finding outgoing/incoming mail server CANCELLED

Hi Experts,

I have WinXP SP3 machine with Windows UPDATE (including IE 8.0).
I have also Office 2003 SBE installation.

Problem is with Outlook. When pressing "Test Account Settings..." for POP server the message appears (at the same moment when pressing button) saying "Finding outgoing/incoming mail server CANCELLED".

Uninstalling/Installing Office 2003 do not solve the problem.

Any ideas.

I would recommend you use office 2003 with full updates (includes service pack 3).

I suspect this is windows profile issue. Try following..
Create new windows user or profile and login to new user and setup Email account and try.

I tried also within new windows profile but the same problem occurs.

Then another IT administrator do something with Outlook Express.
It seems the problem was of absence of Outlook Express on the computer.

So now the problem is solved.
