Not many details provided here.... what version of Windows, browser, email client? When did the problem begin? Changed any settings recently?

And firewall - sounds like a port problem

I recently deleted my firewall (3rd party not Windows) configurations and set new rules, only to discover it had locked Firefox out ... so yeah it may be firewall

Ive occasionally had the same problem. I clear it by clearing all internet caches, cookies etc ( I use 'Webroot Window washer'). shsut down and then seems ok when I restart.
Good luck
