I suddenly can't get messages on my Outlook 2007: "0x80042108 Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming POP3 e-mail server"

I've checked my internet connection (a-ok), tried disconnecting and reconnecting, uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook, no effect.

Something's interfering with Outlook's connection to your mail server (obviously). Here are some tips from Microsoft itself:
• There are corrupted files on your hard disk.
• You are running Norton Personal Firewall 2002.
• You are running Norton Internet Security software.
• You have installed an update to Microsoft Office.
• The Norton anti-spam add-in is enabled in Outlook.

Note Norton Personal Firewall 2002, Norton Internet Security software, and the Norton Anti-Spam add-in are supported by Symantec Inc.

Microsoft might be passing the buck to Norton, but if you can try disabling any of the above apps if they're running on your computer.
