Solved Outlook 2007 can no longer receive POP3

After installing Windows 8 Outlook 2007 worked fine for half a day, then it stopped receiving on my POP3 Accounts -
"Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP)."

It still works fine on two other Windows 7 computers, so it is not a question for the server admin, or my ISP. It is clearly a Microsoft issue.

. It is clearly a Microsoft issue.

not quite sure, it can be a firewall issue, what do you install or change on your pc between the time it work and the time it don't

No changes were made/ In fact Outlook was running and receiving POP3 mail, then on the next attempt it began to have the noted error.

SO I was looking in the good direction, the other PC are on Windows 7, remove Norton crap and use only the Free Windows Defender included with Windows 8, all those kind of problems, peoples have here on this forum are created by third party anti-virus

The same accounts work fine if I delete them and reconfigure them as IMAP, but that screws up the way my accounts have been structured, so I REALLY don't want to do it that way.

My mail server is POP3. Works fine with Mozilla Thunderbird, my favorite mail client, on Win 8 with Norton Antivirus. It might simply be a problem with Outlook. You might want to check for an update to Outlook.
