If you are unable to receive mail, you can usually resolve the problem by following one of the steps below.

  • Temporarily disable your firewall (and/or Anti-Virus Program) and check your email again
  • Recheck the Username (email/account) is spelled correctly as well as the password
    • Check to make sure your Username (Account Name) is in this format: and that you have specified the correct password.
  • Check your Email Account Settings (port number settings)
  • Knowledge Base links for popular email clients


If necessary, you may need to reset your email password by logging into your Control Panel.
