using eudora light mode to read talktalk mail

  mandydog 08:23 05 Oct 06

I am trying to use my talktalk email with Eudora. It hangs up while connecting with the pop server and eventually Eudora times out. I do not have Outlook Express.

I gave the mail program the following.[altered personal names]
email: [email protected]
user name = [email protected]

For the freeserve address I give
email: [email protected]
SMTP server
Pop server:
user name:

and it works
However, for talk talk the program times out while connecting to the pop server. I have tried changing the user name to the talktalk login viz [email protected] and [at different attempt] the pop server to but none of these cure the problem. I sent a message to this address from my freeserve address. I need to change email to talktalk as I am getting so much spam on freeserve.

Please advise me. I do not get far enough for password to be checked.

Could be a problem on the TalkTalk end - mail servers can have problems and offline times.

What error messages are you getting from Eudora when it times out ?

The error message is:
Logging into POP serve CAPA
SSL Negotiation failed.
The connection with the server has been lost. Cause, Eudora got tired of waiting for the server [10100].

The connection was still working, as I could come and post this message

Go into tools/checking mail and try setting the drop down box to " never " to disable SSL see if that helps ....

Just tried your suggestion, but it did not change things
