Description : i often get the following error message when using microsoft
outlook to retrieve my e-mail, it seems to retrieve my hotmail account ok but not those using vpop3:-

Error with Pop3 Client (Nildram (0))

The server connection was closed unexpectedly
Error: 10060 [A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. ]

I have installed Norton Internet Security 2004 and also Spybot and Pest Patrol software to help reduce spam etc but i am fairly sure that the settings i have used are the bulk standard settings in this software. E-mail nearly always seems to work for a while if i reboot the PC, but this is not consistent and the same error reappears later on. i have tried reinstalling all of the above software and also deleted and reinstalled my outlook e-mail accounts but to no avail!!
are you able to assist please
