When I open Mail Washer I get a message, "The POP3 server does not appear to conform to the POP3 protocol. The connection was intentionally closed by the server before the session was completed."

When I open OE and click Send/Receive it connects, authorizes, checks, and says "No New Messages".

The ISP is configured for Webmail so we can check email away from home. When I go there I get an error message.
I tried Telnet and IE says it can't open the page.

I disconnected my firewall, tried all of the above and got the same results.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Mail Washer and OE. Same results.
My ISP says the problem must be in my setup because POP3 is working for everybody else.
What setup? My username and password don't trip any alarms. What else is there to my setup?

I hate to think how much email has piled up on the server.

When you attempt to view your E-mail on the Internet, what error message do you get?
Have you verified that everything in your OE account for the provider is correct?

Actually ,jgweed, I did check as much as I knew to check. I had 3 ways of checking email and none of them got to the server at the ISP. I even sent screenshots of my accounts setup to my ISP so they could look them over. What they ended up doing was deleting my account (which deleted the 300 or so emails sitting on the server) and re-entered it as a new account; same user, same password. That fixed my problem. It's great having an ISP you can work with.

It's great having Bleepingcomputer, too.
Thanks. Love this site

If your E-mail account was with your ISP, and you press them about it, they should be able, with a little effort on their part, to retrieve those files and move them to your new account.
