Same here.


Was intermittent last month - now worse here.


Average over 1 minute to Authenticate pop.


Occasionally timeouts or asks again for password!


Webmail is fine.

Using ISP provided email accounts and email servers is generally not recommended. Use a specialist - gmail, fastmail, office365, etc.
