    pop-server does not appear to be a proper server name?
    Please tell us ONLY the part after the @ in the email address that they will
    be using, and who do they pay for their internet connection (ISP).

    You may only have entered a partial server name..
    Who provides the email account?

    If it's Roadrunner, they have different servers to use, based on where you
    live, and
    whether you are an existing RR customer or an ex-Adelphia customer, etc.
    The POP3 server name could be pop-server.roadrunner.com, or
    pop-server.xx.rr.com
    (where xx is your locale)

    check here...
