Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F

I just played with this in WLM 2012 an added a Hotmail account as POP3.
When I chose "Manually configure server settings" I could add the Hotmail account as POP3 and it receives email.
I used pop3.live.com and smtp.live.com for the servers - same as I use in Outlook.

As the OP account was hacked, it might be best to delete the WLM Hotmail account and re-add it???
Also, make sure the password is changed.

@Neelakantan
Did you intentionally setup this account as POP3 in Live Mail?
The default is "MAPI", unless you manually configure server settings from what I see...

Hi David, when I add a Hotmail account to WLM, all I enter is username@hotmail.com plus my password.
Look at the server setting in my #07 post. There is no mention of MAPI.

I agree, if you don't choose "Manually configure server settings", you get the default protocol - MAPI.
While MAPI is not displayed, it's my understanding that is what is used...

MS does not support the "IMAP" protocol for Hotmail access via "email client programs", they chose to enforce using MAPI, a MS proprietary protocol.

As you see in my screen prints WLM 2012 does allow for POP3 Hotmail accounts, and the user can configure servers, SSL, etc.
Setup a Hotmail (or Outlook.com) account as I showed, and see what you think.
You can setup the same Email account as 2 CLIENT (WLM) accounts - 1 as default(MAPI), and 1 as POP3...
I've done this - I don't recommend keeping it that way as it is confusing.
But, it works and is "fun for testing"...

I don't know how to set the Server tab for POP & SMTP.
My Hotmail is currently forwarded to my Gmail account, with the option to keep a copy on the server unticked.

I used my own "Outlook" settings in post #8 to add a WLM POP3 account, and that worked for me.
If you can't setup a WLM Hotmail POP3 account with what I've posted there, let me know.
I deleted my WLM Hotmail POP3 account on my test box.
I can re-add it and capture/post more screenshots.

Hi David, I managed to set up my Hotmail in WLM using POP. When I sent a message to it using my AOL account, it never arrived in it, but it did in my Gmail account.

Hi George,
I created a new thread for my response to you:
Windows Live Mail - Hotmail POP account

Neelakantan has not replied back with answers or feedback, so I don't know if we are "hijacking" the OP issue???

However, I continue to get this message till now:
Server: 'pop3.live.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0F
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995

Secure(SSL): No
Socket Error: 10053
I tried to repair Windows Mail. Even after that, the error message continued. I reinstalled Windows Live Mail.
Even after that I continue to get the same error message.
Please help. It is a frestrating experience.

Do you have "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" checked for your Hotmail account in Live Mail?
If not, check that option, so SSL is required and see if it helps.

If this doesn't fix your issue can you post screen prints of your Live Mail / Hotmail settings like Roderunner did in Post #4 ?

Dear David W7ncus,
Thank you for suggesting a solution.
But I could not carry out the suggestion.
In my Windows Live Mail, Hotmail Properties has only three tabs.
They are General/Server/Security.
In the Server tab - server information is:
My mail server is an HTTP server
Server URL is ://mail.services.live.com/DeltaSync_v2.0.0/sync.aspx
However, in my Windows Live Mail, I have added another mail service: BSNL.
BSNL Properties has four tabs.
They are General/Server/Security/Accounts
In the Bsnl servers tab
My incoming mail server is a POP3 server
Incoming Mail POP3: pop.bsnl.in
Outgoing Mail SMTP: smtp:bsnl.in
In the advanced tab
Outgouing Mail (SMTP) 25
SSL box not ticked
Incoming Mail (POP3) 110
SSL box not ticked

I am a layman and I have very little knowledge of computing. So I am sending the information to you which I thought might be relevant to you in solving the problem.
Thanks again,
S.Neelakantan

Hello Neelakantan,

I'm not sure if something changed for you, as it seems the error you get changed from what you stated in post #1 and what you stated in post #5...

What I would do, is delete and re-add the Hotmail account in Windows Live Mail to see if that helps.

To remove or add a WLM email account:
1 - Click on the drop down in the upper left corner
2 - Click on Options
3 - Click on Email Accounts...

Select your Hotmail account, and click Remove

To Re-Add the account to WLM...
Click the Add button
Select Email Account and click Next
Enter your Hotmail address and click Next

Here is a screen print to get you started on my instructions that may be confusing to read...
