    I tried doing a ping on the address and received no response, have you
    called your ISP? I believe that is where your problem lies, not on your PC.

    why? Guest

    Try again, just tried to telnet into the server and got the login prompt

    As I dont have an account I couldn't do
    USER xxxxxxxx <cr>
    PASS xxxxxxxxx <cr>
    to login

    c:\>telnet pop.freeserve.com 110

    +OK POP3 server ready (cmailg6.svr.pol.co.uk)
    QUIT <cr>

    Connection to host lost.


    Always remember to check ISPs help / status pages
