I access the net via NTL BB 600kbs service. All was (relatively) well until a week or so ago. It suddenly became a major feat to access my e-mail, by either Outlook Express or NTL's website. When I try to retrieve, I keep getting the message "Your Pop3 server has not responded for 60 seconds, do you wish to continue". I have altered the timeout settings up and down and still nothing happens. Is there something I am missing? I have even run windows setup again in case something had been deleted / changed, but no joy.
this might sound silly but i was having a problem a while ago that was very similar,
i have two email accounts linked to one identity, one would download messages no problem but the other would not, now it turned out that it was waiting for me to enter a password but the password box was being displayed behind the OE window so try dragging the oe window down to check for a password box behind.
it sounds more likely though that the problem is at the other end talk to your mail provider.
