We've just moved and are getting cable internet service from same provider
(Cogeco), but with new password. I can't get on Windows Mail, but can go to
my Internet provider for email service. This message keeps popping up:
Account: 'pop.cogeco.ca', Server: 'pop.cogeco.ca', Protocol: POP3, Server
Response: '-ERR unknown command', Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error:
0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

Any help most appreciated. Windows Mail is more convenient,(if I could get
it!!)
Thanks,

BillF
