Fix 0x800CCCDD Outlook 2007 and gmail account

Posted: June 27th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: howto, idiots | Tags: , , , , | 2 Comments »

I had to configure a gmail imap account for a friend on Outlook 2007.
Using settings from google’s page for Outlook configuration did not work for me.
I was getting “Error message-IMAP server closed connection Error Code: 0x800CCCDD”. I have tried almost anything, the connection to the imap server didn’t worked.

I have used thunderbird to test and it worked from the first attempt.

After a while I have noticed that the image with the account details has the password entered and the “Remember password” option checked.
So, I have filled the password field, checked to remember the password and , IT WORKED.


Later edit:

If your gmail is suddenly not working, it might happen for google to be down. Please check google apps status here. Thank you for your visit.

    I run the http://www.easy-email.net web site.

    One of my customers has just reported that he solved this problem by disabling POP access in Gmail.

    Worth a try if none of the other recommendations work for you.

    Happy emailing,
