In the box where the pop3 address should be e.g.
pop3.ntlworld.com I keep getting a number e.g. 120.10.20. in that box.

I then have to retype po3.ntlworld.com and my account name and password. Close down the window and Outlook and rerstart and then all is OK until the next time and I have to do it all again
Help please

pop.ntlworld.com is 62.253.162.50 . The other address (po3 or pop3) doesn't exist.

If you have antivirus software that does email scanning, it may change the address to 127.0.0.1.
