Windows Live Mail - can not send or receive

May 8, 2014 10:59AM PDT

When I shut down my WIN-7 machine last evening, my Windows Live Mail 2011 was working just fine.
This morning when it started up, I received the following:
Unable to send or receive messages for the account.
Server Error: 0x800488EB
Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800488EB

Thinking that something got changed in the shut down or start up, I did a system restore to the time prior to the last email I sent and received.
This did not solve the problem.
Strange thing....... my Lap Top with the same mail program and same settings still works.
Anybody understand what's going on and how to fix it?
thanks a bunch for any help, Jim

I tried the suggestions in the two links shown above and my problem remains.
I'll take this issue on over to the Microsoft help site and see if they've come up with any new ideas.
Thanks for your considerations.
