We have a SBS2003 server running Ability Mail Server instead of Exchange.
There are 8 PC's that connect to the server and download their email via POP accounts.

All the Office 2007 clients are working fine but the 2 Office 2010 clients seem to go about half way through the Send/Receive process then timeout with the attached message.

If you do a test send receive in setup that works fine.

I have tried recreating the profile, creating a new PST file, scanned for viruses, Windows restore , nothing works

Please try to move the mailbox to another server database and check whether its still having issue or not.

Are you able to use the IMAP protocol instead?

We only have one server, one database. IMAP sort of works but when you try and create folders under the Inbox you get an error saying they can't syncronise

Problem might be caused by security software or unwanted addin.


Try running outlook in no addon mode and then try send and receive.


Click start- run- type- outlook /safe


This will launch outlook in no addon mode.
