Worldonline email anybody ?

  ton 19:16 31 Jan 2012

Is anyone here still using a worldonline email address ?

I've been using it for several years (mainly as a junk address), but for a few days now I haven't been able to access the email.

I get the following error:

An error occurred with the POP3 mail server. Mail server responded

This behavior can occur when POP3 or SMTP server account information is incorrect on your computer. If your account information is correct, behavior can be caused by the connection to your Internet service provider because the e-mail servers may be unavailable for reasons such as maintenance.

Thanks for reply northumbria61

As the problem has just suddenly happened on my desktop and on my laptop, I think the problem should be at the worldonline end.

I just wondered if anyone else has this?

You may be able to find out the Network enter link description hereSTATUS from here (worldonline is listed midway down the page)

northumbria61, I think that is a different worldonline (ends with ZA). Mine is

Worldonline was taken on by Tiscali, which is now run by Talktalk.

So it goes back a few years, but has worked non stop till a few days ago.
