Windows Mail wouldn't send, now it won't receive




Windows Mail suddenly stopped sending email, as I have tried to fix the
problem, now it won't receive mail either. I thought it was my AVG, so I
uninstalled AVG, and tried again. No go. It didn't matter if I have my AVG
installed or not, Windows mail won't work. I have also had problems with when
I have the AVG installed, I cannot turn off the email scanning for incoming
or outgoing mail. Even if I uncheck everything, trying to disable the email
scanning, it still keeps saying it is on. It doesn't matter if I turn it off
through the tools/Advanced Settings/Email, or through Email Scanner, and
uncheck both Scan incoming messages & Scan outgoing images, it still says
"Email Scanner is active". Here is the error messages-

The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test email', Account:
'mail.bellsouth.net', Server: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.bellsouth.net',
Server: 'mail.bellsouth.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes,
Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Oh, I also tried port 110 which was the initial setting for the second one,
so the message used to say Port:110 .

Please help!
