Can't retrieve Email from Compuserve pop mail account

I'm a CompuServe Classic member, with an Email address ending in @compuserve.com    For the past two days, my Windows-based Email client can't connect to the CompuServe pop mail server, nor can I ping pop.compuserve.com    This issue coincided with my failed attempt to reactivate an old aol account, but I think that was a coincidence.  If an Expert could assist by trying to ping pop.compuserve.com  I'd like to know what happends.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

'compuserve.com' is not responding to ping at this time.  When I click on Webmail for Compuserve... I get redirected to AOL.  I think you need to call or contact AOL about your account.

Thank you Dave.  I have reached out to AOL support, but they responded with a link to irrelevant trouble shooting steps for pop mail.  I had asked them if there was an issue with their pop mail server, and they didn't address that.  I'll try asking again.  I can still retrieve my CompuServe Email through their webmail interface, but I prefer to use my Email client.
