Unable To Receive Email With Outlook Express, Error Number: 0x800C0133

A client of mine that still uses Outlook Express called me because they were unable to receive mail on one of their PC’s. After a little troubleshooting I determined that there was nothing wrong with the account itself but it appeared the issue was on the computer. The specific error they were receiving is below.

Error:An unkown error has occurred. Account: ‘mail.example.com’, Server: ‘mail.example’, Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800C0133
