    I just upgraded to 12.0.1184 and now I get this error from all my email
    accounts hosted at GoDaddy. Hotmail, Yahoo and Gmail works as well as some
    accounts hosted on other servers but none of my GoDaddy email works.

    "server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this
    include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity.

  2. GoDaddy's mail server suffers from WLM's APOP bug.
    There is no workaround, but MS has promised that it is fixed
    in the next release of WLM. Meantime you will have to use a
    different email client to download that account.

  3. Gary is totally correct. Unfortunately, we had to find ourselves in this
    situation for a short period of time.

    I can assure you all that a new version is on the way very shortly to
    resolve these issues and give you all an even greater experience.

    As usual, we can't give timelines - but we are close.

    Is there a specific place to to know when a new version is available. I have
    the same problem and it is the first time it has happened on any build since
    I have used it.

    Thanks- are you able to go back to the previous version of WML? the accounts
    that are not working are more important than my hotmail accounts-

  7. If webmail access isn't sufficient for you, I suggest you download
    and install a copy of Thunderbird, which you can use for your POP
    accounts. Seems like webmail should fill the need during the very
    short time before the next WLM build will be released.
