In looking over your initial post, it looks like you have multiple problems:
1) the error message 0x800ccc19
2) asking for password
3) saying that it is wrong (which it isn't)
4) upon asking for mail again, the same messages will be downloaded again with a few more
5) may not decide to "complete".
If you have your password for the server set up properly in the Account Properties, it should never ask for it. If you have it set up as a pop3 account and did not check off "leave copy on server", a specific piece of email should not be downloaded again. If I experienced those problem, I would conclude either that the ISP/email provider was having problems and won't admit it or that my computer was messed up and needed maintenance or a reinstall of the OS. For maintenance you could try disk cleanup, check disk, and sfc /scannow. Microsoft, besides offering their "Security Essentials" antimalware, also offers a bootable disk utility called "Windows Offline Defender". The latter operates from a bootable CD to scan your hard disk without being installed on it.
