        I have a Vista machine that I use to run Outlook for my Pop3 e-mail acconts.

        I have two accounts.  One with and one with

        About a week ago the account stopped working with the connection to the server timing out.  I have not been able to get it working during the ensuing time.

        Any ideas?

        I, too, am using Outlook on a Vista machine, even including a account. (However, I don’t have a account.)

        The first thing that comes to mind is to try to check your email via your browser. That will start narrowing down the possible sources of the problem.

        A second idea is that maybe Bell South changed the incoming/outgoing email port or encryption settings and you need to tweak them in your Outlook. Look around their website for announcements related to these kinds of changes. Verizon did the same thing a few years back and the transition went fairly smoothly.

        Everything makes it look like my Bellsouth account has been blended into my Yahoo account.  Without any specific notice.

        Whether it’s Bell South or Yahoo that’s providing the email service you’re having problems with, can you go online with a browser and see your email that way? Since you report that you can’t get your email for this account on your Outlook, we’re trying to see whether the problem is at their end or at your end. For example, if you can’t check your email even after going online with a browser, then the problem could be with their servers and not your Outlook.
