Problems with email seem to be getting worse. Was fine earlier this morning but suddenly I now get immediate 'connection terminated' messages when trying to connect to POP servers for Tiscali, Pipex & Talktalk email addresses? The response is instant with no waiting trying to connect.

No change today @Ady-TalkTalk
I still cannot connect to POP servers using SSL/Port 995. Only unsecured/Port 110 works.
I have 3 Pipex mailboxes which all have the same problem so have added just one of them to my Private Notes.

Hi stevesurrey, I've seen similar messages from others. Is this still the case this morning. Is your affected Pipex address in your profile if not would you add it to your private notes please.

That's good to hear. Perhaps this is the root of my problem My Windows Live Mail hasn't had any new mail for over a week now. Keeps asking for the password and I keep trying the same one I use for we mail. As back up I'm trying to set up outlook... But not having much luck there either

Since the 11th September Friday (11 am), I have not been able to receive emails into Outlook (2016). Email address is ....@dial.pipex.com. I can send emails via outlook.
Incoming mail server (POP3) pop.dsl.pipex.com Also tried pop.dial.pipex.com - did not work.
Incoming Server (POP3): port 110 & tried 995 which failed.
I keep getting the prompt to enter my username/password. Press OK and I get the error message.
I can access my email via webmail fine and also send emails whilst using webmail.
Hopefully, this will be fixed at some point?

I've seen from your postings on other similar threads that the fix has now been applied.
My testing shows I no longer get the security certificate alert when sending by SMTP.
However I still cannot connect to POP servers using SSL/Port 995. Only unsecured/Port 110 works.

Thank you @Ady-TalkTalk. Hopefully they can do something to rectify both the POP & SMTP problems with the pipex domain. I saw you ask on another thread whether the problems were persisting. I can confirm I still see the certificate alert when sending mail today but have not tried reverting to SSL for POP.
Another issue I have discovered is that messages sent from a Pipex address are not being delivered to hotmail. They are not even being treated as spam. Are hotmail being super fussy about the certificate anomaly or something, or is this just a recurrence of the same problem with hotmail (and other domains) we had several months back (a reputation issue I believe with pipex).

Today I have been able to connect with the Pipex POP servers but only after I changed from using a secure SSL connection (port 995) to an insecure connection (port 110). I did try that option yesterday but it didnt work then though has today. Can only assume this situation is all something to do with the forthcoming migration.

Occasionally one strikes lucky with Chat, @stevesurrey!
I use them for renewals - then keep a copy of the transcript. It depends whether you want to take the time or just wait till Monday.

Tiscali's POP server now seems to be working again. Just Pipex ones that remain dead. I hope its fixed soon and not a sign of problems with the forthcoming migration.
@Gliwmaeden2 little point in using Chat. Numerous reports that they are either completely ignorant of the legacy domains or, at best, merely direct you to these forums for help.

I am on a pipex email address. Using Outlook I get intermittent popup requests to re-enter my network setting username and password which rarely works if one clicks OK. My webmail can be accessed OK.
My wife can't access her email at all via Outlook -keeps getting the same thing.
Looks like the Pipex pop3 servers are on the blink again after a while when they were OK!

If you need help from TT staff over the weekend, @stevesurrey, use Chat, linked from here:
Staff will be back on the forum from Monday.

The Talktalk POP server is working again but the Pipex & Tiscali ones still not working. This does not bode well for the forthcoming migration of Pipex domain addresses.
