    when sitting a few emails come in -but if it sits a while I have an
    error note in bottom right tray of email window- click on it says

    If I click send recieve its fine again for a while -I can get and send
    e-mails

  2. In Windows Mail go to Tools, Accounts, select that account,
    Properties, Connection. What does it say about which
    connection is being used?

    Here is the exact error

    The host 'mail.comcast.net' could not be found. Please verify that you
    have entered the server name correctly.
    Account: 'mail.comcast.net', Server: 'mail.comcast.net', Protocol:
    POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11001, Error Number:
    0x800CCC0D

    it comes after the computer has sat a while- could it have to do with
    power management?

    If I hit send recieve the e-mails come and go fine and WM seems fine
    until a rest state again -I get yellow error box message lower right
    tray of WM window.

    I even turned of McAfeee e-mail protection

  4. Yes, your power management settings could be at fault.
    That error message means that either the connection to
    the Internet is faulty, or else the DNS lookup has failed.
    Make sure the power management is not shutting down
    your wireless card or your Ethernet card.
