I'm using Outlook 2007, and also AT&T DSL service. Most recently they have
changed how we their subscribers need to set our settings. Having followed
those directions, I too am now having this same problem, and do not use
McAfee or Nortons, but do use Windows OneCare. Thus when I log into their
service (sbcglobal.net) there is a large delay in obtaining my messages, and
if I look at the details of the e-mail download, that is where I see the
0x80042108 error.

I would doublecheck the AT&T settings for your incoming mail. Go to their
website and verify they have given you all the information you need.

This afternoon (late) in conversation with AT&T I was advised that I could
restore their settings as were used previously as they know that their
current configuration does have problems with Outlook. However, they had
hopes to resolve these problems "post haste" where-as the settings as they
are advertising now will thereafter work properly. I have restored their old
settings, and my service seems to be working OK!
