I have been using OE for some time. I just started getting a message that
says "pop3 server has not responded" when send/receiving. It works fine on
my laptop but not on my desktop machine. I am able to get the email using
web mail, but not connecting using pop3???

Are you scanning email for viruses?
Are you using a firewall?

you are on to something. I have Norton Internet Security 2005. When I turn
off my personal firewall I can connect with the pop3 accounts. Looks like I
have a firewall problem. Thanks..

Turn off e-mail scanning. Your anti-virus program will still protect you.
E-mail scanning causes Time-outs and is probably what is causing your
problem.

Given recent posts to OE newsgroups, *NIS 2005* is the problem.

That's why I disable the email scanning of NIS 2004, and NIS 2005....I own
and use both. :)

I'm having a similar problem. I can't send or receive POP email (although I
can connect to the internet and use webmail. I previously could, so I know
my settings on my email accounts are OK. When I tried to send/receive, I get
the "Connecting" indication, but then nothing, except "Your POP3 server has
not responded.". I tried de-activating the NIS 2005 firewall settings so it
isn't filtering email. I also tried downloading and installing Mozilla
Thunderbird in case the problem was with OE 6, all to no avail.

How to troubleshoot error messages that you receive when try to send and
receive e-mail in Outlook and in Outlook Express:
http://support.microsoft.com/Default.aspx?kbid=813514

Disable email scanning by your anti-virus application. It provides no
additional protection and even Symantec says it's not necessary:

<paste>
Disabling Email Scanning does not leave you unprotected against viruses that
are distributed as email attachments. Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect scans
incoming files as they are saved to your hard drive, including email and
email attachments. Email Scanning is just another layer on top of this. To
make sure that Auto-Protect is providing the maximum protection, keep
Auto-Protect enabled and run LiveUpdate regularly to ensure that you have
the most recent virus definitions.
</paste>

My car tire was not flat before, so it can't be flat now.

Try creating a new account.
If that works then there is a problem with your old settings.
