Happens intermitently, OutLook will not communicate with Verizons email servers on my Windows 7 AMD 64 laptop.
My wife's Windows 7 64bit happens less. My daughters desktop Windows 8 started happening today.
Ran the Verizon OutLook checker down load. It failed when trying to send/recieve email.
recieve error (0X80042108) send error (0X80042109)
This happened last year.... then went away.
I am assuming it is "your" problem. Our internet connection does appear to be having issues.
I had the same issue on two PCs, running Outlook 2010 & 2013. Finally got through to support. I needed to change incoming server to : pop.verizon.net I had it set to incoming.verizon.net. Hope it helps.
