Cannot access lineone.net email. Is there a system fault?
I use pop3 via gmail.
Used this method for several years. Not made any changes, but it has not retrieved any mails since 1 April.
pop server - pop3.lineone.net port 110

Hi carrotmuseum1, we're happy to add any issues we're aware of to the service status board. Unfortunately, I didn't get confirmation of the issue until Midnight on Thursday by which time it was fixed.

Would be helpful if Talktalk placed a fault message on the website. Maybe they are ashamed at their incompetence!!
Spent over 4 hours trying to correct this issue and then just left with uncertainty, and a flood of "bounce back" emails from people trying to get in touch.

Lineone.net not working again. Is there a problem at Talktalk?

Lineone.net email stopped again. Using the settings from the advice given in early April. It has worked for the last 5 weeks. POP3 mail using right hand column settings. Is there a fault at talktalk end?

Sorry, a simple mistake. I have tried so many different, recommended options, in the past few days none of which worked.
The one which works (today) is pop.tiscali.co.uk on port 995
I have no confidence this will last.
I am gradually moving lineone dealings to another account.
As I keep repeating, I changed nothing before it stopped working, so Talktalk must have. They do not have the courtesy to keep us informed and then give advice on what to do. I have been a customer for over 20 years, but doubt I will be this time next year.

Not true or correct @carrotmuseum1
The TalkTalk email settings for all mailboxes managed by TalkTalk Consumer are those given in the TalkTalk help page Email settings - IMAP & POP3
And POP3 mail is received by mail.talktalk.net on Port 995 using SSL/TLS (or Use SSL for mobile devices).
Not as 'carrotmuseum1' wrote: You need to change the server name. Talkttalk did not tell us POP3 Mail is now sent through: smtp.talktalk.net Secured connection on port 995 using SSL

Having signed in to your mailbox for the very first time via Edge / Chrome, and tested you can receive and send mail messages, it's good to see you have had a rethink and Updated your reset details.
You asked about deleting the mailbox. You'll need to give this serious consideration. The haveibeenpwned website reported 12 instances of data breaches involving the email address. So, spammers and scammers will know the address, can spoof it and send you scam and spam and phishing mail messages so you really do need to be on high alert for suspicious activity involving the email address.

Noted that you're intent on ignoring my advice about setting up password recovery. When a hacker changes your password what's your plan? Don't tell me just make one.
Because your email address and password for other logins has been involved in multiple data breaches as I mentioned. I recommend you check that out so at least you know how insecure and compromised your logins were.
As for Gmail:
The Send mail as function in Accounts and Import?
Username and password is your lineone email address and its password

Just rebooted and used this for incoming in one last attempt.
pop.tiscali.co.uk port 995 SSL/TLS (checked)
That appears to work but I am now bombarded by 450 emails, all from Gmail Team indicating a suspicious message. Never got those before using lineone server.
What is going on here? Talktalk have definitely screwed up here. Maybe time to leave, They have gone down the pan, and the fiasco over breaching contracts for Fixed rate customers, is the last straw.

I am now totally confused and bemused. I do not need passwords software I have ALL my passwords retained outside the computer environment, on paper, off site in a secret locked box. So a forgotten password will never happen.
Right now nothing works to retrieve my lineone.net emails.
Cam someone just post precisely, in plain English, what I fill in the Gmail set up panel.
SMTP server name .....
Check which of these (or both) options:-
POP Server name .........
Do I check - Always use SSL when retrieving mail

Some important follow up advice.
You haven't set up password recovery for your lineone email address. If you ever forgot the password or your mailbox was compromised or suspended it wouldn't be as quick to recover access as if you had password recovery under your control.
I've left a post at the top of this forum that I recommend you follow to set up password recovery Reset details.
The email address is also featured multiple times in relation to data breaches on the website https://haveibeenpwned.com so it is much more important to upgrade to an ultra-strong and unique email password.
