Mail server error

Have you eliminated any local software like firewalls, resident virus scanners etc by temporarily disabling them and trying your connection again? Norton based firewalls/internet security are known to cause this kind of problem at random intervals. See KB318790

PlusNet do not shut their mail servers off at any time so it is more likely to be a local issue.

Also could you post the full error message you are getting as the missing bits can be just as important as the number you quoted.
