  • Hi, I've not been able to receive incoming emails since Nov. 11. I didn't change my settings; however, I did get a new modem from Spectrum and set it up. The modem is working fine for all other programs and other email address (gmail).. What do I need to do to get the incoming emails to actually come in from the server.. It says the connection to the server was interrupted. I've checked my settings against the instructions above and the settings seem to be accurate based on the above. Thanks for any advice. This problem does seem to happen every now and then to my mindspring.com account.
