My Outlook keep showing error, what is all the code means ?

General Errors & POP /SMTP Code

Error Code: Error Type: Description:
0x800CCC00 LOAD_SICILY_FAILED Authentication did not load.
Solutions:
Try closing and restarting OE.

If you still cannot connect, wait 20 minutes for a server reset of your account and then try again.

Try setting up a second identity and see if it works. This could be a possible corruption of your user account in OE.

0x800CCC01 INVALID_CERT_CN Invalid certificate content.
Solutions:
Get your certificate re-issued by your authority server.

0x800CCC02 INVALID_CERT_DATE Invalid certificate date.
Solutions:
Get your certificate re-issued by your authority server.

0x800CCC03 ALREADY_CONNECTED User already connected
Solutions:
You may be logged in on another machine. Close all connections on all machines and wait 20 minutes to check again.

Some mailservers will not recognize an improper disconnection in some instances. Your account may be "Poplocked". You can either wait for the "poplock" to time out, or have someone shell into the mailserver and kill the mail task running on your account. This normally only happens with accounts that have UNIX shells.

If you are not logged in on another machine or poplocked, then someone may be using/downloading from your account, or something is wrong with your account.

0x800CCC05 NOT_CONNECTED Not connected to server.
Solutions:
Can you get webpages? If so you may have the wrong mailserver typed in your account or the server may be down.

If you cannot get webpages, hangup and try connecting again.

Reboot your computer and try again.

If it's still not working? If so, treat as a normal "Not Moving Data" issue. (Check your DNS numbers, rip and reinstall TCP/IP, etc..)

0x800CCC0A INCOMPLETE Message download incomplete.
Solutions:
This is a possible corruption of the pop3uidl file. Close your internet connection and all programs. Search for the file pop3uidl and delete it. Reconnect and it should work.

Repeat step 1 with a reboot before you check your mail again.

You may have a corrupt or a very large file attachment on the mailserver. Large file attachments, mail that are missing headers, or mail that do not conform to the mail RFC's can cause this.

0x800CCC0B BUSY Server or maildrop is busy.
Solutions:
Try to retreive email about once every 5 minutes. Alternatively, call your ISP help desk and to make sure that the server hasn't crashed.

You may be logged in on another machine. Close all connections on all machines and wait 20 minutes to check again.

Outlook Express cannot find the mail server, because you have failed to enter the correct mail server name information in your account properties,

Reboot your computer and try again.

If it's still not working? If so, treat as a normal "Not Moving Data" issue. (Check your DNS numbers, rip and reinstall TCP/IP, etc..)

0x800CCC0F CONNECTION_DROPPED Connection closed.
Solutions:
Modem was disconnected, or network cable was disconnected. If this happens alot, there may be noise on the phone line, you may need updated modem drivers, or an init string.

0x800CCC10 INVALID_ADDRESS Address not known on server.
Solutions:
Check your spelling in the To: field of the email and try it again. You will need to delete the old message from your outbox.

0x800CCC11 INVALID_ADDRESS_LIST Mailing list not known on server.
Solutions:
Check your spelling and try again.

Other possible causes include restricted access to list. Check with your administrator to ensure you have correct access from the terminal you are logged in at.

0x800CCC16 INVALID_ACCOUNT User account not recognized.
Solutions:
Check spelling of account name and re-enter password.

0x800CCC17 USER_CANCEL User canceled operation.

Solutions:
Most likely the ISP you use does not require an SLL connection, turn off SSL in email account properties and try again.

0x800CCC92 POP3_INVALID_PASSWORD Password not valid for account.
Solutions:
This means that your username and/or password is incorrect. Usually, if the username or password is rejected, Outlook Express will pop up a box asking you for your username and password; make sure they appear correctly.

If it is still not working, you need to completely erase the username/password from the boxes and retype them.

0x800CCC90/91 POP3_RESPONSE_ERROR
POP3_INVALID_USER_NAME
Client response invalid. Invalid user name or user not found.
Solutions:
This error message is caused by the fact that you have set an anti virus program, in this case Norton AntiVirus, to scan all emails automatically.Changing the settings within Outlook Express will not solve the issue. You need to go to Norton and change the settings there.

What is Greylist ?

Greylisting reduces spam by denying email from unknown IP addresses with a temporary error. Subsequent send attempts will then be accepted according to greylisting rules.

Why there is a big delay in receiving mail ?

At TCPAccess Dot Com, we implement greylisting as a method to reduce spam.
There could be a delay because of the following two reasons;

1. The remote servers retry time is high. Meaning that the server does not retry a message for a considerable amount of time.
2. The remote server is retrying from a different IP each time so the match is not being recognised and the message sits in limbo and gets retried until the same IP and email addresses can be matched.

What is Data Transfer ?

Data transfer, or bandwidth, refers to the amount of electronic data sent downloaded from your server to the visitor's computer. Such data includes a visitor's request for a page, the page sent in response to the request, any updates you publish to your site. This data may include web pages, images, videos, sound files, software programs, or compressed files - anything on your site that can be viewed or downloaded. The amount of data transferred is also affected by the size of the Web pages and the number of visitors to the site.
Data transfer also includes the sending and receiving of emails, either via webmail or third party email software

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ SEO FAQ

What happens if during the 12 months service period, my website drops from the Top 30 position?

We can only allow it to happen ONCE! If your website drops out of the Top 30 position for accumulated 2 months (based on the free Search Engine Positioning Report provided to you monthly), we’ll refund payment based on the conditions set in agreement.

What happen if I don’t want to continue with this service after 1 year?

If you chose not to continue with our services, we will not continue to maintain the listing and your site might be drop out of the listing.

Will I be listed in the regional search engines such as Yahoo.com.sg or Malaysia.msn.com?

In most cases, if you've attained top ranking on main search engines, you'll also (automatically) receive top listing in regional search engines. However, we don't offer any guarantees for Top 30 positioning in regional search engines.

Can I change the keywords after they appear on the search engines?

No. Once you confirm the keywords, you won’t be allowed to change the keywords until the 12-month service period is up.

What are the differences between TCPSEO and other competitors’ offerings?

There are 2 key differences:
  1. Most other "SEO experts" only optimize your website using the search engine’s “Sponsored Links” (“Sponsored Links” allow your website to be listed separately along with other search results for a fee, much like a paid advertisement).
    1. This fee is calculated based on the number of "clicks" your ad receives, and the amount per click is usually USD 0.10 for 1 keyword. Depending on the popularity of the keyword, this fee could range from USD 0.10 to USD 10 per click. Imagine that your ad receives 10 clicks a day – you’ll have to spend anywhere from USD 1.00 to USD 100.00 daily!
    2. Non-genuine visitors to your website (or worse, your competitors!) could easily drain your ad budget by clicking on your ads. You won’t be able to convert them to buyers and you’ll still need to pay for non-genuine clicks.
    3. Sponsored links may appear intrusive, non-relevant or even “fake” to some visitors. Visitor attention is almost always more focused on natural (organic) search results.
  2. Most other SEO providers only guarantee a top listing for 1 to 6 months. We guarantee Top 30 listing for 1 FULL YEAR OR YOUR MONEY BACK!
