Yup, it's me again with a computer/OS/SBC problem that is causing mental problems.
Quick update on the machine and server. X-P SP3, Outlook Express and SBCGlobal.net. I have been getting the 0x80004005 error message off and on for the past three months. I call the hot line and wait a lifetime for an agent to help me. They all say SBC does not support Outlook Express. I explain I had OE when I signed up for their service, why do they not support it now? None of the agents have answered that to my satisfaction, however, for a few bucks per month (I can't remember the exact amount) I can subscribe to their service to get help for OE. That sounded like blackmail to me. They have always helped me get my mail program working, only for a day or two. The past few days I have been researching this issue with the help of Google, many folks seem to think this error is a problem with the server.
Have any of you had this problem? If so, how did you rectify it?
Once again, thanks for the great help.
