Email downloading problems in OE6

  PC Mad Boy. 07:54 22 May 2004

Hi there, I wonder is you can help me. I have used the windows xp transfer documents and files wizard, got all my stuff backed to the f: partition, this is ok. re-installed xp, then I updated the transfer files back over. Sweet, all worked fine, however I cannot get any of my email accounts to work, it comes up with the following message:

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'Pipex', Server: '', Protocol: POP3, Port: 5100, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

Iam lost, as all the settings seem correct?

Ok I have now resolved this purely by chance, I was looking at the settings in the OE options:

I reset these values, as they got changed somehow, used teh default button and that sorted it.
smtp 25 [Default]
pop 110 [Default]
