Hi, appreciate your help with this problem.

I am trying to find a e-mail provider that doesn't use SSL. I have set up an email account for my daughter and i want to use a kids program called Magic Mail from Easybits to send and receive messages. The previous attempt failed and i received port 110 sProtocol popr error messages. The software company have confirmed that Magic Mail does not support SSL and i should create a POP3 account without SSL. Can i do that with any provider or do certain providers offer this?

Many thanks,

Usually the other way round, most email providers don't provide SSL by default.
Therefore any free account from Yahoo or Gmail will be fine, these can be set up for POP3 access.
