Anyone else having problems with Pipex today? When I try to get my email (OE) I get error message, "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'pop.dsl.pipex.com', Server: 'pop.dsl.pipex.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F".
Can't get anything using Mailwasher either and using webmail is impossible too - the site is soooo slow to open, I can go away and eat a meal and it still hasn't opened.
Only problems reported on Pipex site relate to a date in august.
OS is Vista, bb connection.

......and opening Mailwasher brings up a message "The connection was intentionally closed by the server before the session was completed."

According to their site today there are problems with e mail. I'm getting the same error messages too and can't use e mail either on my elderly desktop running ME or Laptop with Vista.

Having the same problems here too. Password/Username failures on one of three accounts and the same messages you`ve reported. The Pipex site service status isn`t being updated as you noted. Tiscali is also having problems.

Just checked and the date on their site is August as you say, so have submitted an error question which won't be answered till the next business day which will probably be Monday. Bah!

Same here in NW London; no connection for receiving Pipex mail. Fortunately I rarely use their pop mail address to receive mail. I use their SMTP outgoing server, which is working OK.

The Tiscali site states that their pop3 server is working 100%. It must be different for us Pipex users.

I have the same problem with receiving email from Pipex but also I am not receiving any email to the tesco webmail service. Wonder if the problems are related.

I pick up Pipex mail from my original dial.pipex.com e-mail service; however, today it is not responding during OE's every 10 minutes (default) trawling of various e-mail servers.
