POP3 - tools-account-server-shows a number in pop3

  Scooter2358 16:41 03 May 2004

In the box where the pop3 address should be e.g.
pop3.ntlworld.com I keep getting a number e.g. 120.10.20. in that box.

I then have to retype po3.ntlworld.com and my account name and password. Close down the window and Outlook and rerstart and then all is OK until the next time and I have to do it all again
Help please
