    Hello, might try this, open Terminal & paste this line in & hit enter, see if you still get timeouts...

     

    ping -i 10 mail.bigpond.com

    Yes it always worked in the past. I keep getting a message saying portts 110 and 25 are the problem. Very frustrating. When I try to send the whirly  thing just keeps trying. Before it was instantaneous.

    In Mail's Window Menu, choose Connection Doctor, any red dots for status, if so what is the message?

     

    Then click the Show Details button & Check again.

    Sorry to hack thread but I have been having mail & Bigpond problems.Connects to Yahoo account but not Bigpond. Have been quitting mail & restarting with some success but that is now not working. Tried the tip about turning off SSL but it changed to Port 110 and no luck.

     

    Message is: The server returned the error: The server “mail.bigpond.com” refused to allow a connection on port 110.

     

    Connection Doctor had whirling gray circle next to my Bigpond POP acct for ages, now states 'cannot connect to this POP server. Nothing comes up in 'show detail' box.

     

    Driving me crazy. Oh, just came up with following in 'show detail"
