i have switched from Road Runner to DSL.
i 'm having trouble in getting Eudora to work w/ DSL,(it was working
w/ Road runner until i switched.)
All the settings (incoming and outgoing stmp,login name, etc.) i have
double checked, and still get "error getting network address for pop
server"
Can anyone help?
Thank You,

FrontierNet FAQ - E-mail - Answer

What should my POP3 (incoming) mail server be set to?

If your e-mail address ends with @frontiernet.net, your POP3
(incoming) mail server should be set to:
pop3.frontiernet.net

If your email address ends with @citlink.net, your POP3 (incoming)
mail server should be set to:
pop3.citlink.net

If your email address ends with @newnorth.net, your POP3 (incoming)
mail server should be set to:
pop3.newnorth.net


So in Eudora, your POP3 account is specified as

***@pop3.frontiernet.net

If that doesn't work, open a DOS command window and enter:

C:\ ping pop3.frontiernet.net

Which should produce output like this:

C:\>ping pop3.frontiernet.net

Pinging pop3.frontiernet.net [66.133.130.7] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 66.133.130.7: bytes=32 time=66ms TTL=238

Reply from 66.133.130.7: bytes=32 time=67ms TTL=238

Ping statistics for 66.133.130.7:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 66ms, Maximum = 67ms, Average = 66ms

If the ping command cannot resolve the name pop3.frontiernet.net
to the IP address 66.133.130.7, then there's something wrong with
the DNS servers you're using.

That means Eudora can't lookup the IP address for the pop server. It is
never getting to the point of trying to connect to the server because
it can't find the address to connect to, so your login name etc aren't
the issue. Are you really sure that you've got the right name, with no
typos in it? If you haven't done so, try erasing whatever you have there
and retyping it. Sometimes tehre is something invisible wrong. If you've
tried that, are you using anything that involves a proxy server that might
not be working correctly?
