It’s been a long time since the Windows Live mail is discontinued and merged with the Outlook mail. But many users have retained their access to the Windows Live Mail ID. But when people try to configure the same mail ID in the third-party email clients than the Outlook, then face the 0x800ccc0f Windows Live Mail error.
The error is very annoying as it does not describe the actual issue. If you are continuously facing this error while configuring the Windows Live Mail with an Email client, then you should not worry at all. In this post, we are going to share some working solutions to get rid of Windows Live Mail Error ID 0x800ccc0f within a few minutes.
You only face this error while adding the Windows Live Mail to any third-party email app. The issue is not applicable to the Outlook email client. Here are some of the solutions that you should try out to fix this issue.
Most of the email clients won’t change the port settings according to the email service provider. So, if you are facing this problem with Windows Live Mail, then you should know it is related to the Ports. You are advised to change the port for the Incoming Mail Servers to the “995” with SSL enabled and then change the port for Outgoing Mail Servers to the “465” with SSL Enabled.
Most of the Windows Live users including me never faced this issue again after changing the ports as the problem was lying with the Email Client default ports.
If you are using a low-speed internet on your computer, then you are going to face this problem. There is no chance that you are not facing this problem with the high-speed internet. The connection to the incoming and outgoing servers often gets timed out if the internet speed is very low, resulting in the error. That’s why you are advised to check the internet connection and perform a speed test. If your internet connection is stable and you are still facing the problem, then restart the Router and also restart your computer.
The virus and malware programs are dangerous for any of the online activity such as emails and cloud storage. If you are using the virus infected PC and those virus programs are interrupting with the system services, then you are going to face this error on your computer. The Windows Live mail may show this error if the essential background services are interrupted by the malicious program. The best course of action is to download and use any reputed third-party antivirus software program and get rid of the issue. Also, you can use the inbuilt Windows Defender security program to scan your computer for the malicious program.
If you are still facing the same problem even after following all of the methods mentioned above, then there is no other option than reinstalling the email client. If you’ve encountered the installation problems with the email client, which resulted in the corrupted installation, then installing it again is the only option you can exercise.
Not being able to add a Windows Live Mail in third-party mail service is very frustrating. The Windows Live Mail Error ID 0x800CCC0F tells the user that they are facing some technical issues. But thanks to the solutions we shared above, the problem can be fixed within a few minutes. I hope you’ll follow these methods and solutions to get rid of the can’t add Windows Live Mail in Email Client error.No tags for this post.
