Can't get email thru YPOPS!
Posted on 2007-04-07
I use Mailwasher to display emails from several accounts. Four accounts are thru hotmail/msn and three accounts are pop3. Beacause of the pop3 bloackage, I use YPOPS! v8.8 to access all the e-mail. Two pop3 accounts are thru sbcglobal.net and one is thru Yahoo mail. I have had no problem for two years. Three days ago, for no apparent reason, I am unable to download email from Yahoo - only Yahoo. I can read Yahoo email when i sign in directly through the browser. However. It seems every time Mailwasher tries to download my email (automatic every 10 minutes) for all 7 accounts, I get an error message, "Unable to download for Yahoo Mail. The operation timed out - no response was received from the server." There doesn't seem to be anything new that I am aware of to prevent YPOPS from working. I asked this same question on the YPOPS forum and did not receive a reply. They're a big help.
I deleted YPOPS! and reinstalled the latest version but no change. NOW, after reinstalling, in addition to not being able to download I get an additional errro message saying I used the wrong password. I have renetered the correct password 3 times but it still says it's wrong. H E L P !
