How to fix pop3 error 0x800ccc90?

Are you facing the consistent error 0x800ccc90? Most probably, you can see this error in the MS Outlook application while configuring more than pop3 once in one profile account. It’s better to say it’s an error from Outlook Express. The most common reason for getting this error is Outlook Express is not ready or got struck with some other problem so that, it couldn’t connect with the mail server which maintains outgoing and incoming emails.


At the same time, it is not easy to configure POP3. One of the best ways to configure the POP3 is only one at a time. You cannot configure two or more POP3 configurations at the same account.
  1. You may end up with restrictions to configure POP3.
  2. The credentials you enter for login may be incorrect.
  3. The outgoing server port number may have been changed.
  4. Up to other configurations, your server may be an external application.
