Thunderbird Unable to "Get Mail" - error messages are either "Connection to server pop3.xtra.co.nz timed out" or "Server busy" - have not been able to retrieve messages since beginning of this week. Any suggestions please?

maybe the server IS busy. can you login to your webmail?

Yes Gmail works fine

Hmm If GMail is the webmail option used why is your mail client authenticating to the xtra servers?

After using Outlook Express for about 12 years I changed to Thunderbird about a month ago due to problems with OE and I have always had xtra as ISP?

go to the xtra website and login to your webmail.

I don't understand your posts at 4 and 6?

go to the xtra website and login. and i believe was being flippant, the cheeky bugga ;)

Yes, they're all there, but how come I can't use Thunderbird?

Sorry, the messages have now come through Thunderbird as well as Yahoo!Xtra - but how does that work?

it's e-magic, which is like regular magic but on the internet =)

who is being cheeky now Im sure you know exactly what I was asking, you were probably asking the same thing :)

Thank you for your help, very much appreciated - and I really don't want to know the technical details anyhow, just so long as it does what it's meant to do. Cheers and have a good day!
