You beat me to posting it:

A time-out occurred while communicating with the server. Account: 'mail.plus.net', Server: 'mail.plus.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC19

I am seeing something similar myself. I have raised this to jon and he is taking a look to see whats happening.

As its only just started to materialise they wont have had a chance to identify it and update SS just yet.

I'm looking at this right now guys, I've managed to replicate it both locally and from home. So whilst networks work on resolving the problem, I'll get a service status post put together to tell you all what you already know Smiley

Well this has never happened before, has it? What happened to the "£250,000 worth of new mail servers"?

Makes me glad I switched to an outside-based email account.

Slower mail is not the exception but the rule

Hi all. The mail server might be timing out right now, but this reminds me that PlusNet mail retrieval is much slower than it should be even when it works.

I retrieve mail into Outlook from two Hotmail accounts, Gmail, and two domains. Yes Plusnet is nearly always the last of the accounts to complete the operation.

Why is this?

I've seen the updated service status page , but the problem has now escalated to a server failed to respond error.

Jon , can you retry the connections your end & see what errors you are greeted with.
