thanks for bumping me to the top. isp is freserve. +ok pop 3 comes up. I understood username was everything after @ and not before. +ok message comes up I enter everything after @ and then it says authorization first. I have tried upper &lower case & even password but it keeps asking for authorization first
On Freeserve they now have a facility where you can delete stuck messages through FS Mail. If you goto their website at click here ; click on the Help option under Internet Access at the top of the homepage, on the next page under Top Five Questions it has an option for "How Do I delete a stuck email"
Click on that, it tells you how to do it through FS Mail.
I've used it before and it's very easy (I've also doen it through Telnet too, but this takes the sting out)
thanx for your help . I did as you suggested and went through FS Mail which told me I had no stuck e-mails, so that is not my problem. I can send and recieve ok but when finished it comes up with the message the host POP3 could not be found
Check your accounts and make sure all your settings are correct. The POP3 error message should tell you which account is causing the problem. If it's one you haven't used for a while you'll have to goto Freeserve and reactivate that account from the website. What is the full message for the POP3 error??
If you have only one mail account and it's working OK in FS Mail but not through the POP server it could be a corrupt mailbox on the ISP server in which case ask Freeserve to have a look at it.
