    Something has been changed, on your side, at mailservr side or user account.
    Think about, if it was working then stop, something has been changed.

    Hi Guhananth,

    Are you sure you have enabled pop3 of your accound?

    Are you using the right port?

    I use gmail to have a test using oponpop and have a success.

    Below is my code.

     Pop3Client client = new Pop3Client();
                client.Connect("pop.gmail.com", 995, true);

    My account setting. Please ensure your pop  is enabled.

    Best regards,

    Ackerly Xu
