  1. I was using SSL only because that's how I remember it setting up by default. and it's worked with those settings for years. I switched to the non-ssl option and it auto-selected port 110. now, I get connection refused. change the server from pop. to mail.spamcop.net and mail comes unhindered.
  2. How can I troubleshoot this problem? Webmail works fine. I have rebooted my PC several times, toggled my server settings between mail. and pop.spamcop.net with only the same results I describe above. I only did this at the suggestion of the first response post. The main residual issue I get is the domain mismatch message. If I click OK to it, my password is rejected (Most likely rightly as somehow it is going to wrong address?) If I click Cancel, I cannot get email. Once in a while, email gets thru, however it is very inconsistent between any changes I do. My settings have been unchanged since I reinstalled my system earlier this year. I keep XP Pro fully patched and same with Thunderbird. Antivirus, firewall and router are all working properly. Firefox and IE are unaffected, only my spamcop account is affected. If I manually POP my roadrunner email, it works flawlessly. I am open to ANY suggestions to fix this annoying issue.
  3. The problem has progressed to the point now that I can only access my account via Webmail. Last night, I started getting errors stating my password was incorrect. That happened a number of times where it either went thru successfully or gave me the password error. Now it simply says "Could not connect to server mail.spamcop.net; The connection was refused"
  4. With my mail settings changed to mail.spamcop.net, I now get the same error message, except it states: You have attempted to establish a connection with "Mail.spamcop.net", However, the security certificate presented belongs to "Pop.spamcop.net"......
  5. I changed my mail settings to mail.spamcop.net Will see if this fixed the problem..
  6. Frequently for the last week or so, I keep getting this message when trying to POP my messages from Spamcop via Thunderbird: "You have attempted to establish a connection with "Pop.spamcop.net". However, the security certificate presented belongs to "endeavour.worldmail.org". It is possible, though unlikely, that someone may be trying to intercept your communication with this web site." Is this something I should definitely cancel/block when I see? Or is it a benign message? I have been canceling when I get this message. Occasionally, it appears to get the correct certificate and go thru without any errors.
  7. Mine is back on the "invalid Password" problem again as well. Just started up today, since I got my earlier messages yesterday
  8. That particular message was sent by myself, to myself. I've done that before in the past to test email programs on initial setup. My dad even sent me a message last night, to my daniel.near account, and it was returned to him as a looping error. He re-sent it, and it passed through ok. Daniel
  9. Guess that fixed it! My hotmail popped all of my messages to me about 1:30pm EST. Thanks! Daniel
  10. My friends have called me to say that emails sent to me are being returned to the sender with a message saying it is 'looping'.. Recently, my ISP was bought out, and I had to change my email information from the old servers to the new ones. Shortly after that, I noticed that my incoming email dropped drastically! A friend notified me and forwarded one of the rejected messages. It says that the email is looping, and was rejected. Incoming mail to my daniel.near account is filtered by Spamcop, and forwarded to my d.near account. I had the same exact settings for the last ISP, only changed the domain of my emails. Here's the reject message: Hi. This is the qmail-send program at spamlite6.knology.net. I'm afraid I wasn't able to deliver your message to the following addresses. This is a permanent error; I've given up. Sorry it didn't work out. <d.near[at]knology.net>: message is looping /var/qmail/vpopmail/domains_test/knology.net/pinellas/d/d.near/Maildir/ --- Below this line is a copy of the message.

  11. My hotmail account is doing the same thing. I thought maybe it got hijacked, so I changed my Hotmail password and updated it in Spamcop, to the same results.. Please let me know what the fix is. Daniel
