Getting this error message when starting OE

The host 'pop3.paradise.net.nz' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop3.paradise.net.nz', Server: 'pop3.paradise.net.nz', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

No settings have been change.

Run AVG/Adaware/Spybot every day - not that I am paranoid :D :D

This has started recently, without changing any settings.

Any ideas?

Go to Tools/Options in OE
Untick "Send and receive messages at startup"

See if that helps

Also try connecting from within IE with your dialup connection or connect with a dialup shortcut with OE closed.
When connected open OE and click send/receive

Are you definitely connecting to the internet?

Is AVG the only antivirus software being used?

Do you run a firewall, is OE allowed access?
