I just recently synced my outlook 2007 to a more upgraded Outlook. Everything was & is still working fine but every few weeks or days I keep getting this message which says -- {your verizon.net account settings are out of date.} Okay so now when I click on the blue highlighted LEARN MORE - section it directs me to log into my micro-soft account - okay so after I'm done with that it now gives me the message your account settings are up to date. I'm fine with that - but when I click on the accounts area and think about deleting that particular account. That's the only true account that really matters or should I say the only account that actually gives me e-mails is the one that says Verizon on it. The other one has never given me any e-mails. But when ever I think of deleting that particular account it asks are you sure you want to delete this account - doing so would delete everything associated with that account. Now this is where I get confused are they talking specifically about that particular account or are they talking about both accounts. Meaning if I delete one I now delete both and have to start all over again re-syncing things back together. I just want to get this over and done with. I know someone has the answer I seek oh please someone anyone out there please help me obi-won-knobi. LOL

Is the message and email message or a popup in Windows 10?

If it is a pop up in Windows 10, this message is just telling you that if you remove the account from the windows 10 mail client, the will delete mail from the client. ? It will not delete the account on the email server, just from windows.
But when ever I think of deleting that particular account it asks are you sure you want to delete this account - doing so would delete everything associated with that account.

Is this where you get the message? If not, posting a screenshot would be a be help.

Thank you - Diane Poremsky I got things working now, so far so good. I just delete the account that really wasn't receiving any e-mails. I kept saying "no e-mails received" One account was for Verizon which is the one I needed and had to sync my Outlook to. Can't figure out how I winded up with two of the same accounts anyway. When I only need just one. Thank again - but in the future before I just go on this site and ask questions I think I'm going to experiment responsibly using good judgement - the worst that can happen is I mess up that badly. But I hope it doesn't come to that. I saw your screen shot - you posted a screen shot of exactly what I was talking about. Thank you again for your help. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Don't know if I'll be watching the Superbowl I don't really care for either teams. Being from NYC this is a downer for me. I might just watch just for the commercials. They normally are quite entertaining and funny.

Hello Diane Poremsky - I hope you're staying safe from this corona virus I really hate to be a bother but I could really use your help - once again I am perplexed and confused by my outlook 2007 here is the messages i continue to get

Task 'workman309@verizon.net - Sending' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Task 'workman309@verizon.net - Receiving' reported error (0x8004210A) : 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the receiving (POP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: -ERR [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.'

Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified. Try changing the encryption method. Contact your mail server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for additional assistance.

Send test e-mail message: The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

Last time all I did was do some synchronizing which now I don't know how I even did that. But the computer system somehow figured it and did what ever it had to do. But now it won't even do that. I just need some one to help talk me through this.

Never a bother. :) I'm staying safe but Have 2 girls working in hospitals and one working in rehab care. The rehab site locked down in Feb, so I'm not overly worried about that daughter but the other 2 are in patient care.

That's on yahoo... do you have 2-factor or the security key enabled? You need to use an app password instead. (They will soon be requiring 2-factor.)

>> Your server does not support the connection encryption type you have specified.
Did you enable SPA? Don't. Yahoo doesn't use it.

Thank you for contacting me - Diane - I do hope your daughters stay free and clear of the virus. I pray for all health care workers - and everyone else who has to go out on the battle field so to speak. I pray for my family not just in NYC but in Georgia as well. Some of my family lives in Savannah Georgia and I don't know what is wrong with that Georgia Gov. he just learned that socials distancing is required in every state - is he that dumb. I'll pray for him also he definitely needs some Godly direction.

in Outlook 2007 when you click on account settings there is that area where it says at the bottom a box which reads - Require Logon using secure password authentication or (SPA) is that what you're talking about. Okay and once I click on that box to enable it do that then what do I do after that? Because there are a lot of other complicated steps that confuse the heck out of me and I don't want to mess with the wrong thing.

Yes, that is the checkbox is speak of. Don't enable it unless told to - very few servers support it. Unless things changed very recently, yahoo does not.
