Outlook Express Error "0x800CCC0F"

Sometimes Outlook/Outlook Express, in conjunction with Norton Anti-Virus, has a hard time downloading some virus spam or spam that is waiting on the server which has corrupted formatting in the subject lines, bodies or attachments. The emails that are the most problem are the ones that either have blank subject lines or subject lines that contain "& n b s p ;". These emails become stuck on the server and Outlook/Outlook Express will often give-up trying to download them. The quickest way to resolve this issue is to log into the affected email account using webmail and then delete the offending emails (make sure to "Purge Deleted" after you mark the emails for deletion).
