For some time now, I haven't been able to receive any pop3 email using any client. . I can receive emails using IMAP. I have Windows Vista. I use Outlook 2007 as my primary email, but I tested with Thunderbird and Windows Mail. None of them receive pop3 email. I always get the following error message:

Task 'mail@domain.com - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC90) : 'Your incoming (POP3) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: .'

I use the following other programs that may or may not be interfering with the email.
PCTools Registry Mechanic
Norton Internet Security
PCTools Spyware Doctor

What is your POP3 server address? "mail@domain.com" doesn't look like a valid email address or sign-in ID either.

doesn't matter.

you could insert kadh2000@microsoft.com if you wanted. I didn't feel like putting up my real account information where a bot could sniff it and send me spam. So a changed it. Any pop3 servers I have accounts at have the problem. Comcast is one of the places I have an account with.

If all POP3 servers have the same issue then the problem is usually caused by firewall software on the computer. Tried disabling it?
Realistically if you have Norton Internet Security you don't need Spyware Doctor.
