I'm hoping someone can help me. I am not able to access my email. I get the error message "connection to pop server timed out"

Can anyone help?

Your POP server is taking too much time in responding back.

Make sure you are using correct settings for servers, and related ports.

If even then you get this error, try pinging the server by opening Start Menu > Run, typing cmd.
In the command prompt window type ping pop.gmail.com change this with your pop server. It should get replies from server. If you dont get any reply, the server may be down.

If the email server is not a private one, we can help you with settings if you tell us what email provider you are using.
