I spent hours researching resolution to send and receive error messages such
as 0x8004210a and Ox8004210b "The operation timed out waiting for a response
from the receiving (or sending) (POP) server. If you continue to receive
this message contact your service administrator or ISP." My ISP is Charter
Communications and they tell me this is a Microsoft problem. Resolution in
Microsoft support areas says to download Office XP Service Pack 3. However,
I have read on this site that it is not available for Outlook 2003. I am
using Misrosoft OneCare, not Norton or McAfee. Is this really a Microsoft
problem? Please help me get these problems resolved. Thanks very much

Thanks very much. I have a cable modem for ISP service from Charter. It
goes into a Linksys WRT54G router that provides wireless service for my
wife's laptop. A cable connects my desktop to the router, and this is the
computer I use and where I am having the problems. It may be helpful for you
to know that I have had to reboot the router when I couldn't get online
sometimes. Also, I've had to reboot the cable modem sometimes as well as my
computer. I am most grateful for your help. This is driving me crazy.

Let me guess. She had you adjust the MTU setting.

Brian, you are exactly right. She also had me enter lots of lines for
Outlook on a certain page. I had to hook the router to a laptop and place it
to the side of my desktop which was connected to the Internet while all this
took place. This took a lot of time because the chat session transmissions
are inherently time consuming. So far everything is working properly and I
am most grateful to have this resolved. Best wishes to you and thanks for
helping people like me.
