Hi Lmaps

Could you possibly copy and paste (can't recall if the dialog allows this) or transcribe the exact error message here.  A screenshot would help if that is easier for you to attach.  That should give us the details of whether your POP3 server is set to use standard Port 110 or SSL Port 995, or some other port.

Could you please also supply the following details which might help to figure out where the problem lies:

1. How do you connect to the Internet, eg. USB Broadband Modem, Ethernet to Modem/Router, Cable, etc?

2. Do you have an AntiVirus application set to scan incoming emails, and if so can you recall how it is configured?

3. What is the time-out in seconds under the account's Properties > Advanced tab?

All of these details will probably help to zero in on the most likely cause.
