Suddenly I cant send or receive email on my Windows Live

Resolved Question:

Suddenly I can't send or receive email on my Windows Live Mail. I get an error message reading "Unable to send or receive messages for the Shaw Email (beegilbert) account. The host '' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D
Protocol: POP3
Port 110
Secure(SSL): No
Socket Error: 11003
Whatever is causing this has also caused other minor problems. For example, although I still have full Internet access through Internet Explorer, none of the Internet shortcuts I have on my desktop will work.
Help, please!

I'm afraid System Restore has not been switched on since we got the computer a few months ago, so what you suggest is not possible. You'll have to dig a little deeper.

That will give step by steo instructions to check the settings

So far I'm disappointed with your routine answers. Your information hasn't really told me anything I don't know already. I expected some analysis of the error code '0x8000CCC0D'. It obviously points to something very specific that is wrong e.g. a corruption of some kind in the registry. Please elaborate.
Expert:  abhi_iitian replied 7 years ago.

Right-click on the account in the Folder pane and select Properties. At the
bottom of the Servers tab, tick "My server requires authentication"

0x8000ccc0d is usually associated with it not being able to resolve or reach your listed mail server. I was trying to make sure you have correct server settings.

Also, Please download, install and run, the following utilities, they will only do good to your system and make your system cleaner and spyware free.
