Can't log in to POP3 server

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm suddenly getting connection terminated errors logging in to my spam cop POP3 box (pop.spamcop.net).

Webmail works okay.

Any advice!?

Thanks.

Jerry

This has been mentioned in another thread http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=448

under the subject: Webmail Login fails, Unable to login to webmail

It seems like the POP server is down as I can see port 80 open, but not 110. I have not seem any message that JT has been notified, however.

Norton :unsure: is often the culprit after it updates

Happens to me once in every while then you lose POP ability (reboot is the answer)

Which Norton product does this?

If it's on a PC running WinNT or better, have you tried just restarting its Service?

Thanks guys, it fixed itself here (no reboot, just started working again; don't think the problem was my end, since I have about six other non-spamcop POP3 boxes, and they were all working fine).

And to clear up what I was posting... I do not have a POP client available to me here, so I was doing manual testing from my Win2K box...

And I still get the same result, so that may be on my side:

telnet pop.spamcop.net 110

Connecting To pop.spamcop.net...Could not open a connection to host on port 110

: Connect failed

I had also done a port test for POP3 and came up empty, so I ASSUMEd the service was having problems when no one posted here or in the other thread it was working.

PLEASE forgive me? :rolleyes:

don't feel too bad . I had finished up typing in a response in another Topic here, hit the "add reply" button .... little blue progress bar seemed to take forever, then I got sent to an error page, talking about the SMTP error I'd just ran into ?????

Did a "Back" click, and got shown a screen to "add a reply" and the one I'd just sent was showing as the most recently added comment ..???

There may yet be something found that's runnin 'round <g>

You should complain to Symantec about that.

I notice others have found this with Norton also, as to complaining to Symantec Will look at a better virus program next time (Sophos) :angry:
