First, are you using the free or the paid version? Like Yahoo, Lycos mail doesn't support POP access for free accounts.
If you're using the paid version that supports it, the correct settings appear to be:
pop.mail.lycos.com smtp.mail.lycos.com firstname.lastname@example.org password

Do you have Lycos mail setup on your iPhone(if you have one)? I have that issue with Yahoo! mail before. If I was in mail on my iPhone I couldn't pull new mail. Out of habit, I close out of mail on my iPhone when i'm at home so I can check on my iMac.

Their help is sketchy at best.
Here's the link: https://help.lycos.com/kb_cat.php?id=131#2002-EPJX-8466
Synopsis: They recommend using IMAP, but the instructions to set up an iPhone are using POP - hmmm...
in the iPhone instructions they say to turn SSL OFF, but in the outlook instructions, they say that you can optionally use SSL - again, this makes my go hmmmm...
They don't have explicit instructions for mail.app, but they do have them for Outlook 2003(????). In this case, they are using IMAP rather than POP, but I think the key setting is that they set the incoming server port to 143. IIRC, 143 is the default IMAP port, but 443 is the Secure IMAP port.
If you turn off SSL, it may work...
Hope that helps.
