Over the last few weeks,this compu that I borrow and hopefully have not buggered keeps keeps delivering the messages that I have posted in that time.
The latest is this one.
The host 'pop3.@xtra.co.nz' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop3.xtra.co.nz', Server: 'pop3.@xtra.co.nz', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D
It is all very well keep fixing with the brilliant help of Jim and G_F,but what is causing this to happen?

I have run viurus do dad ad aware plus spybot.
Something is afoot and I know not what.

Just be clear on what I have typed in to

incomingmail[pop3] pop3.@xtra.co.nz

I strongly suspect the @ should not be there. ;=) What you have typed is an email address (of "pop.") , not a "fully qualified domain name" which is the Internet address for a server.

that's correct it should be pop3.xtra.co.nz and smtp.xtra.co.nz ........no @ symbol......also I notice that you have the account name as pop3.xtra.co.nz that's wrong too.......if for example your username is bobsmith@xtra.co.nz then the account name is bobsmith.......

Agreed. I did the same thing about 2 days ago. Easy mistake unless you set up POP3 accounts often.

Thank you chaps,you were so right and all is well.

Why though does it keep getting out of faze?

12-06-2004, 05:03 PM
Usually virus scanners change the settings so they can scan POP3 mail as it's downloaded.

Though that looks like user error, rather than a virus scanner changing it.
