[DSL] Connection to server timed out

Or--failed to connect to server...

This is not a DSLX problem but it is a problem with my main (Windows 7 64bit) computer. All others work fine.

My email program is Postbox and I cannot connect to my POP or SMTP servers. I can connect to DSLX web mail fine.

I have a hunch the Superantispyware mess that happened on boot up this morning may have had something to do with it but I don't know where to turn for help.

»SUPERAntiSpyware flagging Avast

I can stumble along using web mail but I am here asking if someone can help me. Postbox tech support is about as worthless as it can be.

I reinstalled Postbox but the problem still exists.

Can anyone head me in the right direction to a solution?

Thanks.

edit: I just installed Thunderbird and it connects to the server with no problem.

Sorry to bother you.

Glad your new email client's working out ok. A little surprised Postbox wasn't working after you reinstalled it; if anything, makes me suspect your firewall may have added it to the blacklist (so clearing it from the blacklist would allow it to work again).

Hi Nick

No idea but now it's working.
