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.

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.
