Hi,

I am trying to connect to my hotmail pop3 account through wwPop3, however it keeps saying "Couldn't connect:" without a specific error message.

Hotmail account has been set to use pop3 and port is set to 995.

Any idea on what could be happening?

Thanks in advance,

Juan

Not sure if that can work or not but there are rules on how you need to connect. Probably need to first connect with SMTP username and password, then connect with POP3.

I also don't knwo if these services require SSL connections for POP3 - if so this won't work.
