Is popgate messing up?

Recommended Posts

Wanted to see if anyone else is having problems with popgate not retrieving Yahoo e-mail. I have an account classified as "SBC/Yahoo Dial", and several other regular (free) "Yahoo" accounta. The "Dial" account stopped working, as well as *some* of the free accounts, while others work. I noticed this several days ago. I went into SpamCop tools, deleted those entries, and reentered them. After waiting for an hour, I went back in to check the settings, and am gettting "Cannot connect to server" error message on the "external servers" configuration page.

Any ideas? Is popgate busted? Should I use popgate.cesmail.net, or popgate.cqmail.net? (I have a cqmail.net account) I have about 120 e-mails sitting in my dial account, and about 2000 in one of my free accounts. I made sure to use XX[at]yahoo.com for my e-mail address.

I only have one free account with yahoo but I have been receiving mail (spam and real mail) through it as normal within the last hour. However, when I went to check my settings, I did see an Invalid Password error reported, so perhaps something bad is starting to happen. I reset the password and a test I sent came through within a few minutes.

The one Yahoo! account my SpamCop Email Account accesses for me via popgate.cesmail.net is working fine at present, along with the rest of my POP Configuration.

I've changed passwords on the problematic accounts, deleted them from the configuration, and re-entered them. The Dial account is working again, but the other accounts are still giving me a "cannot connect to server" problem. Also, my hotmail account started giving me a "cannot connect to server". Can someone make sure that popgate is working correctly?

I repeat my statement above. Please contact JT about this issue via support at spamcop.net.

And I also repeat that my account is still working properly with no errors reported since yesterday's posting.
