    The last day or two I have been unable to get my pop3 mail from my MSN account using OE.

    This is the error message that I keep getting:

    Unable to logon to the server using Secure Password Authentication. Account: 'MSN mail', Server: 'pop3.email.msn.com.', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '.', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

    Now... I haven't made ANY changes to my accounts, settings etc..... what does this mean? Is this indicative of a server side problem or is there something I need to do to correct this?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Did you try going to Tools > Accounts> Mail> Properties> Servers. Uncheck the option for Secure Password Authentification .
