I am unable to create a POP mail account on my computer or my iPhone today. I have 8 other email pop accounts with the same server. Trying today to replicate the same steps with a ninth email account, APPLE Mail is deciding that it is IMAP, and will NOT let me revise the "account type".


Does anyone know if this is a system-wide change effecting new email accounts within the past few days?
