Re: POP3 server has not responded in 60sec. A timeout...

Could be a number of problems.
To test this I tried to telnet to on port 110 and it did not work. Of course this is assuming that the incoming pop3 is set to:

If it is possible that the MX record is not set to point to the right IP which is: internet address = internet address = internet address =

I would suggest that you contact the hosting provider and ask then to look into the reason telnet is not working.

I switched to for incredimail and am unable to send e-mai

If you are using windows mail you need to modify you account settings for the new mail server. You need to know your user name and password for your account. You will also need the Incoming Mail(POP3) and Outgoing Mail(SMTP) and if the server requires authentication. You will get this information from AT&T. Once you obtain this info you can modify the current account or add a new one using under the tools tab then accounts.

The issue is: Unable to Send/Receive emails from winThe host 'POP3' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'POP3', Server: 'POP3', Protocol: POP3, Port:...

You are receiving this error because of one of two reasons:
1) Your email account is not set up properly. Click on Microsoft Outlook, click on Tools, then Accounts. You will see a window with columns stating Account-Type-Connection. If an account is set up then click on it then click on Properties. Click server tab and you will see the SMTP server block and the POP3 server block. Both of these fields will read as follows: and Your Internet Service Providers name will be in the XXXX. If these are not set up properly then you cannot connect to send email. If they are filled out correctly then you need to call your Internet Service Provider and inform them of your situation. Their server is not working properly.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.

You haven't given a description of your issue, but seem to have a some problem with email, and using onetel services. The following is from their site at This should allow you to make sure your settings are appropriate.

Please find below the basic Onetel e-mail settings:

  • Incoming mail server (POP3): Port: 110
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): Port: 25
  • Username: the first part of your e-mail address (everything before the @ sign)
  • Password: the password you chose when you registered the e-mail address with Onetel

If your e-mail address ends in

  • Incoming mail server (POP3): Port: 110

  • Username: your full e-mail address
  • Password: the password you chose when you registered the e-mail address with Onetel
