I have set up disroot.org email with POP3/SMTP. However, the clients I use often (2 times out of 3) are not able to connect to the mail server. Error message:
Task 'Disroot - Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).' Same for SMTP if there's outgoing email.
PC with Windows 10, MS Outlook 2007
Android, K-9 email
I keep trying and eventually it connects.
Web mail usually works but occasionally there is some waiting time before it connects.
What I have done:
1) re-set the accounts. K-9 reported flawed security certificate but once I allowed the connection, K-9 seems fine. Outlook still has problems.
2) increased the server timeout to 5 minutes. Didn't help, the error message comes up much sooner (after c. 1 minute)
I am based in Singapore, is that an issue?
This is a problem, if I won't solve it, I'd be forced to switch to another provider.
