Troubleshooting Outlook Express Errors 0x800CCC0D and 0x008CCC0E

Every once in a while, Outlook has an error such as “Can’t find host – cannot Locate Server” or “Failed to Connect – Cannot Connect to Server”, error codes 0x800CCC0D and 0x008CCC0E. I found the notes below and thought posting it would be a great way to store the info in case I need it in the future.

I found this very helpful link for troubleshooting those errors and other Outlook errors such as Client Response Invalid.

Some other tips:

  • If outgoing port 25 is being blocked, try setting the port to 587.
  • To clear cache and flush DNS, go to DOS command prompt and enter ‘ipconfig/flushdns’
  • Try Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connections. Right-click and choose Repair

Starting Outlook in SafeMode – Tools > Options > Other > Advanced – Add-in manager, clear checkboxes; restart Outlook

Finding Previous DNS Settings for a Domain

So the other day I was setting up forwarding for some domains and accidentally forwarded one that I didn’t want forwarded. When I unset the forwarding, the domain reverted back to the default settings and not the settings that it was previously set to. I recall once in the past when this happened, and GoDaddy tech support had said they keep no records of previous DNS settings for domains. Knowing that Google stores cached pages, I wondered if there was anything similar for DNS settings. I searched, and sure enough, there were a couple sites that keep previous DNS settings for domains. All you have to do is type in the domain name, and it comes up with results.

Here are two that I used: http://dnshistory.org/ and http://whoisrequest.org/history/
