When I try to connect through IE I get;
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.
For Outlook, my other email addy comes through, but my BF one gets;
The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'firstname.lastname@example.org', Server: 'mail.brokenfrontier.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E
Here's what I've tried so far.
Both shutting down and restarting the windows xp firewall
adding www.brokenfrontier.com as a trusted site
cleared all the cookies from my cache
tried to go through this addy 22.214.171.124
tried a DNS flush
tried going through a google search link
tried running CCleaner and HijackThis
ran Norton and Antivir virus checks
tried pinging the website (it timed out)
reset the TCP stack with winsockxpfix
and now ran through the Malware cleaning guide here at G to G
(at least this is what I recall)
I'm really not certain where's left to go with this, so any and all suggestions would be very much helpful
