Hello. I am having a very strange problem with my OSX Mail software, heres what has happened: On Monday my Shared Hosting company server that deals with my mail crashed. It was restored from a backup and everything was online again by Monday night. On Tuesday morning I realised I hadn't recieved any mail (not even any Junk!), so I phone the hosting company to check everything is ok... 'its is' they say and I go and check all my settings and even set up on a new Mac to double check, this Mac logs in and receives all mail until the 20th August and stops. No error, just stops like nothing more is there, I use Console to telnet the mail account and it confirms that I have a lot of mail to be picked up but mail doesn't think so... I use an online mail browser and this works fine and I can acces the missing mail, next step is to dust of Entourage and set up my account in there to see what it will do as i haven't used it for ages it pulls down all the mail up until the 20th August before chiming and telling me 'a connection failure has occured', back on the phone to the hosting company and I mail them my telnet results and wait, and wait, and wait... finally they get back to me to tell me its not them its me, they tell me to search the web and check my settings! So I am running out of help fast... anyone have any idea what's happening? thanks in advance. TM38.
