    Assuming you have POP3 email, try the following. If you have
    Win95/98/ME you'll have to set local echo or you won't be able to see
    what you're typing. Backspace cannot be used as an error correction!

    telnet to your pop3 server, port 110

    For example, if your incoming mail server is mail.atlanticbb.net you
    want "telnet mail.atlanticbb.net 110". (I was able to get this far -
    of course, I can't login because I don't have an account there.)

    Now, wait for the welcome message and type "user

    Now type (no quotes) "user wattsbrothers" and carriage return.

    Wait for the OK message.

    Now, if your password is "whatever", type "pass whatever" and carriage
    return.

    Wait for the message about how much email you have.

    Now, to get out of the program, tyep "quit" followed by carriage
    return.

    If this doesn't work, note the errors.

    If this does work, then the problem is your settings in your mail
    programs.

    One common problem with Outlook Express is that you are trying to use
    secure connections or login and most ISP's don't use this.

    Tools, accounts, highlight the accounts and properties, advanced
    settings and clear the secure settings.
