Live Mail x800CCC00F on Win 7 Home Premium--long post

My wife & I use the same computer. Different Desktops. Both use Live Mail, both have Comcast.net accounts. I have confirmed that the settings are the same. Comcast says no problem with her e-mail account. However, I can download my e-mail from my desktop & she can't download her e-mail from her desktop.

The problem started out as intermittent, then became frequent, and now is all the time. I will send the error message. Error 0x800CCC0F; SERVER UNEXPECTEDLY DISCONNECTED.

Windows updates are automatic. Win 7 Home premium SP1. Live Mail 2012 build 16.4.3528.0331

She can log into the account via the browser, but not via Live Mail.

1-1/2 hrs on phone with Comcast Tech support to confirm that there were no problems with the e-mail. Then 3-1/2 hours on phone with Microsoft Tech Support in India. After taking remote control of my desktop, the Agent checked various settings and set up a new Live Mail account for my wife, which downloaded 36,000 (yes!) e-mails as far back as 2004 (that took 3-1/2 hours, too)--but (after Agent signed off) the new account won't download any more e-mails. Sending test e-mails from Live Mail works, or at least it did. MS Tech agent also set ports at 25 &110, although he told me over the phone that he was setting up an IMAP server connection. I can send Word docs showing my settings, her old & new settings, but I don't want to show our e-mails and so didn't post them yet. (I can & will blur those areas if that would help).

I also don't want to download all of those e-mails again. Could we create a folder on the browser-accessed e-mail and move those old e-mails into it?


2 whole days on the task. Wife thinks maybe we should call a "pro".

Thanks for any help.

UPDATE: I suspended for 12 hours Norton Antivirus checking incoming/outgoing e-mails. No change. On advice of a Windows Wizard I know, I next told NAV to not scan the folder C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local [the folder which contains the WLM e-mails]; still no change. Next options are to change the password (it already complies with the recommendations (min 8 characters, min 1 uppercase & 1 lowercase latter, min 1 number), try the Microsoft Live Mail forum, and throw myself on the mercy of Microsoft Technical support.

Pray for me.
