POP is where you retrieve your mail. Verify you can ping the POP server either via IP or hostname. Is your mail server located in your environment? Cloud? Where are you trying to access from...same network, home, cloud.

Please give more details.

You need to contact your AntiVirus vendor to assist on making it play nice with Outlook. Meanwhile, test by disabling it and see if the issue goes away.

Verify the pop address is correct - example "mail.yahoo.com" or whatever it is. Also, verify the security settings are correct that your POP provider has in place. Some of them require different usernames and passwords and also can run on different ports.

Has this worked in the past or new issue?
