Question about Panicware Pop-Up Stopper Basic (00200) for PC
All was right with the computer world. Then my wife opted to enlist Comcast phone/voice mail service. It was a natural mistake as we already use Comcast for TV and Internet. Comcast came out and replaced my modem with a new model and everything seemed to be working just dandy. We experienced a problem trying to get voice mail messages so my wife called Comcast support. Unbeknown to me the Comcast support gal had my wife changing settings! My computer world collapsed. I could no longer get my Outlook Express e-mails...had to resort to the Comcast e-mail clunker of a program. All the settings looked ok to me. I've narrowed the problem down to password. Comcast had my wife change our password. I had a Comcast guy come out this past Friday to fix the internet which abruptly took a ****. We de-installed our Net Gear router and he was able to get the internet connection once again. He also established some link with Outlook Express as 46 messages appeared in it. A few yet remained in Spamwasher. Since Friday 3 messages have managed their way thru to Outlook but 9 remain in Spamwasher at this point. When I would hit Send/Recv the Outlook Express connectivity screen would briefly appear and promptly disappear. I went back in to the settings and noticed that the incoming server was set to Rich rather than localhost. I changed it to localhost and now the Outlook Express connectivity screen will remain open and tries like heck to grab e-mail from Spamwasher to no avail. It times out and gives me an error message that my password has been rejected. I get e-mail into my Comcast in-box. Spamwasher grabs it from Comcast but will not let it thru to Outlook Express. I have no problem with out going mail btw. The only thing I can think of is that you need to know my new password? Please help! Rich Wiseman firstname.lastname@example.org
Your incoming server should be set to mail.comcast.net - not localhost and not Rich (outgoing server should be set to smtp.comcast.net) - this according to comcast.net website.

To fix the same messages coming from a POP account again and again:
Since Outlook Express has just lost even the rest memory of which mail it has already seen, expect all mail still on the server to be retrieve the next time you click Send/Recv. After that, mail retrieve should return to normal, however.
All duplicates already received can be eliminated fast with a duplicate removal tool.
