What does this error message mean?

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'mail.plus.net', Server: 'mail.plus.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

I'm on XP using Outlook Express and haven't changed any of my settings recently.

Any help appreciated as I'm a techno-dork. Cheers.

Hi, I'm a bit of techno dork too ... but if I get this message it just means the line's gone down. Maybe just temporary. Keep trying, I would say.

I haven't been able to collect my email now for a few hours, the mail.plus.net server don't appear to be accepting the account of password.

Is this happening to anyone else?

simlar for me:
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'MAIL.PLUS.NET', Server: 'MAIL.PLUS.NET', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

It means 'your ISP is plusnet'.

dunleyhouse: that particular error means that plusnet's mail server refused your connection attempt. It's normally solved by trying again later as the likely fault is that the server was overloaded.
