There's nothing showing up internally that should be affecting email, are you experiencing exactly the same problems as before the maintenance?

It's playing up a bit here also. It hesitates when displaying "authorising", and takes up to 10 seconds to get past that stage.

Emails slow to connect

I am having the same problem, it seems to hang for upto 30 sec , then connects this has been happening for the last 4 days and although no a major problem it is very irratating, I know I should have more patients but I cannot help, swearing at the PC when it happens.

As it appears not problem is showing as Plusnets end, maybe Plusnet should send out a global email asking how many customers are having this problem, so they can guage how big a problem it is, and if a significant number of customers are affected they can release the resources to investigate and cure the problem. :roll: :roll: :roll:

I've just been upstairs to talk to networks about this, and they're aware of the situation.

Could I just ask if any of you are having these problems with pop3 email collection, or is this just whilst using IMAP to read your email?

I'll feed this back through to networks, as looking at it earlier there was nothing obvious that should be causing pop3 to time out, though there was something that could potentially cause IMAP to time out or be sluggish due to the nature of the protocol.

As posted in another thread I have had this problem since about 01:48 today.


Task 'Tom- Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC0F) : 'The connection to the server was interrupted. If this problem continues, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'


I have spoken to my sources and have been told there is nothing showing at their end.

Is anyone seeing the same error as I am do we know? Nothing changed and nothing was added, moved etc on my system or network. It simply started.

I am not seeing a major slowdown/timeouts this time but it is still very noticeable that the PlusNet e-mail server is much slower to respond than the Freeserve one (I get mail from one Freeserve and two PlusNet mailboxes) using Outlook 2003
