#50 can not connect across proxy server


Here is the contents of my log file. Asyou can see, I am
unable to retrieve messages. I am located behind a
proxy server. Windows 2000 SP4, OE5. IP is my desktop PC, this is an internal IP
address and not visible to the internet.

Do you need any other information?

    I am able to access yahoo mail without problem. Since the
    intranet here gets a little slow during the day, I thought it
    might be faster to use ypop tp download the mail, and then
    view it using Outlook Express. The corp mail system is
    Outlook/Exchange, not OE.

    Does the log file tell you anything? Is there any other
    information / files / date I can provide you with?

    Could there be a timeout setting that is too small?
