"Could not connect to "pop.xxx.xxx.xxx
"Cause: connection refused (10061)"
"Error reading from network"
"Cause: Eudora got tired of waiting for the server. (10100)"
I can still send messages with no problem, so the SMTP side is fine, it's just the POP side that is affected.
If I reboot and start Eudora I can read my mail, but then say 10 minutes later if I click on read mail I get the error message(s). The only way to recover is to reboot, and then a few minutes later the problem reappears. I have spoken with my ISP and they see no issues with my account, etc, so the problem appears to be local to my PC. It seems to me that something is taking over the POP port of closing it down, or similar.
Note: this problem is not apparent if I run Eudora in safe mode, so it seems there's possibly a nasty lurking in normal mode, however nothing is being reported from full scans by my AV (Avast!), Malwarebytes and Ad-Aware, and Avast's various firewall/shield logs are empty.
I'm hoping you guys can suggest other tools to deploy to try to find out what is going on.
