Check your incoming mail server, username and password, it's probably not configured correctly.

thanks for the suggested solution - I have already made the suggested checks, looks a s tho' I have missed something in the configuration process.


PS, v. careless of me! I should, of course, have said ' mail can be SENT but not RECEIVED - humble apologies (although they are received on web mail).

✔ Best Answer
So you can send but not receive.

Well, things you should checked (again):
1. Incoming mail server.
2. Username and password.
3. Correct port number (For example, 110 for POP). Also, check if your incoming mail server requires encryption.

You can check the above settings by visiting the help page of your E-mail provider.

you are using our broadband serivce:


Servername: smtp.dsl.pipex.com or smtp.dial.pipex.com
Connection Type: SMTP
Port: 25
SSL: Disabled
Authentication: Disabled

If you are not using our broadband service or configuring a roaming device such as a mobile or laptop then you will need to use our authenticated outbound server instead:


Server: smtp.dsl.pipex.com or smtp.dial.pipex.com
Port: 25
SSL (Secure Socket Layer or Encryption): Disabled
SPA (Secure Password Authentication): Disabled (or clear text)
Authentication: Required
Authentication Type: Plaintext password
Username: Your e-mail address
Password: Your mailbox password

thank you again, paradoxwizard, problem is now solved:

I am with talktalk ( who have now taken over pipex, tiscali, etc), I opened an account with them, involves submission of a new password to access it. So far, so good. What I didn't tumble to immediately, this replaced my old pop3 server password as well.
