It is not uncommon for logging in from your email client software (on your PC) to temporarily fail to succeed. If you leave it a day or two it usually resolves itself. This issue generally seems to be caused by server problems at the host's end and is nothing to worry about.

In the meantime just use webmail.

"pop mail has been down for a week now"

Then something is wrong. A POP mail server is a simple thing, and if you can't login then there's an error somewhere.

You need to reset the pass word on the popmail server using webmail.Then reset the password for the email client you are using.

Hi thanks for your advice I have rest password with no look so I will have to keep using web mail till pop mail starts working again

To be honest I would guess it is actually working and it is his setup that is wrong. Try and obtain the pop settings again from the server owner and reset the details in the email client. My guess is it is not the password that is wrong but the authentication method is incorrect. (Password, SSL/TLS or nothing).

Having looked at the notice on the website click here I think it is time to find an alternative email as seems uku.co.uk is on way out.

Hi with reference to my post I could not get my pop mail working.

I have managed to get the pop mail back working, for some reason they have change the user name/ account name from user name to full email address with out letting you know.

Happy New year to you all
