POP3 Login failed - SockError: Connection timed out

edited October 2023 in Need Help
Hi getting this new error message 

POP3 Login of * failed - SockError: Connection timed out

I've seen it's common and so followed the advice like removing SSL but still not working for me. I had a problem "host not found" before but think it is fixed as now I have this new error 

I'm using catchall email from namecheap FYI 

Thanks hope someone can help

    Ok so I'm going by the GSA doc "email provider settings" Maybe I should have never looked at that. Should I remove all mentions of yahoo and only use my name cheap catchall email in the email verification settings? I just assumed that I need to redirect from an email for subs to one I can control i.e yahoo
  • Not sure if this clears anything up better. 
  • SvenSven
    yes, do not use any yahoo account here, only the settings for catchall from namecheap.
