incoming pop3 mail via outlook when on AOL problem

  dagbladet 13:00 13 Mar 2004

Just upped to AOL 8 and for some reason can no longer recieve my pop3 incoming via outlook. I've looked in tools, accounts, and all the server info in relation to the (ukonline) account is as before. However, when I hit send/recieve i just get a '0x8004218 outlook is unable to connect to your incoming pop3 mail server' message. Any ideas anyone please?

simple really if you want to get your uk online pop email you will have to log on to them and not through aol. If uk online was dial up for eg you will have to use thier dial up connection to get your pop email. If you log on via aol you will only be able to get aol pop mails and internet email such as Hotmail

No, it worked fine for about five years. When AOL got a bit clunky last week, I got a V8 CD and stuck it on. Now it isn't playing.
