I keep getting this message,
connection to server pop.orange.net timed out

yet at the orange site it shows all the services are wonderful :laugh:

I can connect to the net, obviously as I'm writing this message!

Anone else having similar probs, it all worked up to about two days ago.

It sounds like there's an issue with Orange's incoming e-mail server. You could try changing your DNS to http://www.OpenDNS.org and see if that fixes it, otherwise it's either an issue the ISP needs to fix or another program on your PC/firewall may be blocking access to the server.

I seriously doubt that it's anything you've done though; with Orange it's far more likely that they just haven't bothered to update the service status page. It's a sad but common thing for ISPs to ignore such things until a problem gets really bad.

Just tested it with telnet:-


Telnet pop.orange.net 110

- and the server doesn't respond.


They seem to have a working IMAP email server though.

Telnet imap.orange.net 143

* OK IMAP4 server ready
? LOGOUT
* BYE LOGOUT received


Connection to host lost.

I think there pop email servers are playing up.
It keeps asking for my user name and pass when i try to log in via outlook.
Also ran a speed test and my speed is 1.9mb, im on 8mb and the exchange is the next street.
