i avidly followed the "outlook pop3" thread, to no avail.
i set up a new e-mail account in the control panel last night, and the clock icon indicating new account never went away. i couldn't logon to the new account using Webmail or Outlook.
I deleted the account this morning, and set up another one, and I'm having the same problem. No webmail access, "Unknown user or password incorrect," and certainly no Outlook access.
Am I doing something profoundly stupid? I don't think so, because I'm pretty smart.
