Has it worked ok for you previously? Have you made any modifications to your system recently? i.e. installed any antivirus / antispam?

Try reconnecting to the internet or possibly remaining diconected for 10 mins.

It may eb that you have too many connections open to the server (or what ti thinks are too many connections).

There are no reports of problems on the POP3 server in many many days according to http://monitor.plus.net/ - however, this doesn't account for the fact they are load ballanced.

Rebooted pc and lo and behold a miracle occurred (amazing how often that happens).

No need to apologise,
We wouldn't help out in the forums if we didn't enjoy it.
