As a user, you might face certain issues while working with Microsoft Outlook.

You might get an error message that your Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) host could not be found. The error code that denotes this particular message is 0x800CCC0D.
There are many causes for the errors that occur during sending and receiving the mails from Microsoft Outlook. There are specific causes for specific errors. This behavior could arise if the POP3 or SMTP server account information is wrong on your system. Even though the account information is correct, this error might happen. This behavior could also be caused by errors in the connection to your Internet service provider as the e-mail servers might not be available.
For solving this issue, you need to confirm that you are using the accurate account settings for your assigned E-mail servers. To validate the settings for your Internet E-mail account, Start Microsoft Outlook and on the Tools menu, click Accounts. Then in the Mail tab, select the name of your E-mail account, and then hit Properties. Then from the General tab, substantiate that your E-mail address is accurate. On the Servers tab, you need to bear out that the E-mail server information is accurate for both the incoming mail (POP3) and outgoing mail (SMTP) servers. Confirm that both servers have the accurate settings for your password and account name. Then ask your ISP if your server needs you to log on by using a protected password validation and whether your outgoing mail server needs authentication. On the Connection tab, substantiate that the connection that you employ is accurate. Then on the Advanced tab, authenticate that your server ports are approved. Then click OK, and then hit Close for saving any changes.
