Re: POP3 Email Access Failing - Error 0x80042108

I have been having the same issue for most of the day.  Same error across multiple email accounts.  Sometimes it works on one account but not others.  Mostly just fails.

Is there any update as to why this is happening, and when it is likely to be fixed?

Connection to the server failed or was dropped - Error Code 3253

Good afternoon,

I cannot send or receive my emails via Outlook. I get the above error message and code.

This has happened since this morning, when I was able to receive and send emails.

I am on POP3 using ports 995 (receive) and 465 (send)

I am able to access emails via the website but this is not ideal as I use Outlook to interface with other stuff.

 

Help appreciated

Brian

Quite a few of us have reported problems with the mail server connection today.

Re: blueyonder POP/SMTP error

There does seem to be an intermittent issue with the POP servers today.  I have asked the question behind the scenes to flag this issue.
