    Configured email to a POP3 account. Works OK for a couple of weeks then becomes intermittent and refuses to download some messages. If I delete the email account then re-enter it, it will download the missing emails and works for a few days.

    All settings on this email account are bog-standard with the exception of the sending SMTP port number. I leave the emails on the server for 3 days to allow Entourage and iPhone to share the same account.

    I've recently changed ISP and it appears to have happened since then.

    Has anyone had this problem? Pointers please?

    Same Problem

    Hi Glenny2lappies

    I realise that this post is 3 years old but I was wondering if you'd found a successful solution as I'm having a similar problem and can get no joy from a websearch or indeed the Apple Geniuses in store?

    Many thanks
