I use MS Outlook to access emails but noticed that I haven't had any new emails since Wednesday. When I ask it to check for emails I get an error message thus
Task 'Synchronizing subscribed folders for email@example.com.' reported error (0x800CCC0E) : 'Outlook cannot synchronize subscribed folders for firstname.lastname@example.org. Error: Cannot connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'
In the past, these errors have generally been gone by the following day but this one is a persistent blighter.
I can access webmail where emails seem to be arriving ok, but it's just not as convenient for me, does anyone have any ideas? I know there were problems yesterday but today everything is showing green in the server status

Are you a TalkTalk Consumer home broadband or Mail Plus mail only customer? I ask because mail could be restricted to webmail access only. The email address must be listed in your MyAccount, My Mailboxes. Managing your email in My Account
It's possible that the Outlook credentials just need re-entering. Credentials being the Username which is your full email address and the password. You can check the password and mailbox is working by signing in to TalkTalk Mail webmail to test the mailbox send and receive.
