gadfly Posted July 29, 2005 Share Posted July 29, 2005 I just switched my ISP from Mindspring to Comcast. I use Apple Mail to access my spamcop email account. I had to change my outgoing mail server from mail.mindspring.com to smtp.comcast.net for sending mail. I am now unable to connect to mail.spamcop.net to retrieve incoming mail. I can send mail OK and I have two other pop accounts using my web host email accounts (pop.fatcow.com) -- both of these accounts send and receive just fine. Now, when I try to retrieve email from mail.spamcop.net I get the following error message: "The server "mail.spamcop.net" refused to allow a connection on port 110." I can't think of any reason why this should be affected by my move to Comcast but it's the only thing that's changed on my system. I was retrieving email from mail.spamcop.net using the same Mail account configuration just minutes earlier while I was connected via Mindspring DSL. All other internet services are working fine and I can connect to my spamcop email account using Webmail. Any ideas why Mail can't retrieve any more? TIA (I can see that I posted this to the wrong forum but this forum structure is a little confusing.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
