Modem sending, but not receiving email

Hi guys,
I have a second computer ( 486DX/33 MHz/16MB ) running Windows95.
My modem is a generic 14.4 faxmodem ( internal ).
I can send messages, but -for some reason- cannot
receive email (Juno displays a message to check my line,
if my modem is on, etc ).
Could it be it's about time to replace the old modem?,
how can I find out if the culprit is the ancient modem?
TIA for any help.
Happy Holidays!.

It has nothing to do with your modem.  As long as you can establish a connection your modem is fine.

Thanks for your input, I'll try to do some
troubleshooting, assuming the old modem is OK.
Greetings!.

Your problem is the POP3 password, or POP3 server name.
I have seen this error before. The problem is Win95 is not very specific about the problem.

I decided to install a new 28.8 faxmodem,
now I can receive and send messages.
Was it the modem?, I don't know, thing is,
the problem is gone.
Thanks to all who replied.
Happy New Year!.
