It is possible Xtra have restricted access to their pop server unless you have dialed in and connected with the Xtra account.
When you connect with Paradise you are probably getting your Paradise mail OK but failing to connect to Xtra mail server.
You can confirm this by connecting with your Xtra account. If this is so there is not a lot you can do about it but it is very annoying and inconvenient for many people.

The same thing has happened with my husband. He phoned Xtra this morning and they said they were not allowing emails to be accessed anymore from another IP. You have to dial into Xtra to download the emails. My husband's response 'Then cancel my Xtra account.' Perhaps a few more people will do the same.
