Solving outlook express errors

Sometimes we get some errors while using outlook express but we can’t understand what they mean and what could be the solution for that.

Here’s the usual errors codes with their solutions:

0×800CCC00 – Authentication did not load.
Solution :
*) Try closing and restarting Outlook express
*) If still getting same error, wait 20-30 minutes for a server reset of your account then try again.
*) It could be a corruption of the user account in Outlook Express. Try setting up a second identity and see if it works.

0×800CCC01 – INVALID CERTIFICATE CONTENT
0×800CCC02 INVALID CERTIFICATE DATE
Solution :
*) Get your certificate re-issued by your authority server.

0×800CCC03 – USER ALREADY CONNECTED
Solution :
*) Close all connections on all machines, wait 20-30 minutes and try again.
*) If you are not logged in on another machine or poplocked then someone may be using/downloading from your account or something is wrong with your account.
*) Sometimes due to improper disconnection your account gets Poplocked so to get out of it either wait 20-30 minutes for it to time out or get somebody to shell into the mail server and stop the mail task that is running on the account.
