    I have followed the instructions to create an new email account on my Outlook email program. I am able to get the test email from cableone.net, but I cannot get any of my mail downloaded. I don’t want to be forced to choose Google to get my email. Please tell me why I can’t get my mail. I am using the POP3 the mail.cableone.net and the authmail.cableone.net I am using the correct the new password. Still, I cannot get my email. I am running Windows XP and using Outlook 2003. Thank you.

    I got my account locked. I don’t know what happened with my account but after enabling POP in my account I got my account blocked. I am really worried about what I should do. Can you please suggest me a remedy for this error? I need to access my account soon.

      Lockouts usually happen when heavy usage is detected with POP access. And also this happens in a very short span of time. You don’t have to worry as these lockouts that you are facing are temporary and the block will be taken off in 24 hours. You will be able to use your account after that.

      You will face this problem if you download your entire account into your mail client with the help of third party software.
