Email: Mail Essentials POP connector retrieving to Exchange mailboxes

My client is a part of a franchise and have webmail supplied by the company, we use Mail Essentials to POP the mail to their Exchange accounts. Previously had no issues, yesterday external mail stopped being delivered.

I've checked the POP connector logs, it is accessing the mailboxes fine, downloading the mail fine, but timing out when trying to deliver the mail. Nothing has chnaged configuration wise to the server, we haven't touched it in weeks. I've checked with the company that provides the webmail, they have no issues on their side.

I've tried setting up the POP account directly in the clients Outlook, it also failed to pull down the mail. I've confirmed all of the credentials are correct for all of the users (approx 6 users).

Ive tried restarting the POP services and the Exchange information store services etc. Nothing relavant to be found in the Even Viewer...

Help!

Thank you,
Sam

If outlook is also failing directly, then I think you can discount the pop connector. Several possibilities:
1) A change in your network connection (firewall, etc). I'd try configuring pop3 on a machine not associated with the network.
2) A corrupt message on the server. These can cause pop3 clients to freeze, fail to download messages, and similar odd and frustrating behaviors. The only way to resolve these is usually to delete the message via the web interface.

Are you Able to ping or telnet the ISP Ip which you configure in outlook client?
Another think you also restart Pop3 service and check it.

Both answers assisted with troubleshooting. Unfortunately it ended up being a corrupt config on the router.
