    I have 3 email addresses. One for junk mail, contests etc and I use that as web mail. The other two are setup through Outlook. For about the last 3 weeks or so I've been getting this error when I open the web mail, reflecting back on the second address in Outlook.

    We're sorry, but it looks like there might be something wrong with the settings of the external account joej44. Please check your pop-server.prodigy.net in Settings and try again.

    I receive all the mail through both accounts in Outlook just fine, but it keeps saying on the web mail that there is a problem. All the settings for the pop server look normal. Any ideas?

    In Outlook it is set for a pop 3 account
    Incoming mail is pop.att.yahoo.com
    Outgoing is smtp.att.yahoo.com

    Incoming is set to port 995
    Outgoing to port 465 and it requires an encrypted connection.

    Nothing has changed and like I said, I'm getting mail just fine in all 3 accounts.

    Do you get your POP email through Outlook just fine?

    Yes, no problem there. I'm also getting the web mail just fine, but the annoying warning keeps popping up on web mail talking about the settings in the pop address mail in Outlook.

    All mail is working, but I have to keep acknowledging the error in order to proceed and the error comes up every time I open, delete etc in the web account.
