Test POP3 access

Testing to see if you can access our POP3 mail servers


Open a command prompt, you can do this via...


Start > Run > Type "cmd" and press "Enter"


(Note: If "cmd" does not work please try "command")


A black window will appear - in this window type the following...


telnet 110


(NOTE: If you get any prompts about telnet trying to access the internet please allow it)


If you receive a line similar to this...



Then you are OK - please type "quit" and press enter


If you get a connection error or do not see the above then you cannot access our server, please check your firewall settings and network - you may also want to try a trace route - please see this KB Item for details.
