Email connection problem with possible server or timeout.

Starting on Nov. 16, I'm having problems using my email client that gives the following errors.

Everything has been normal until Nov. 16.

Operations Log:

11:08:08 PM [email scrubbed] [POP3]  MailClient.Accounts.SocketException:

Connection failed due to the following reason:

 

11:08:08 PM     "Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond."

 

Operations Errors:

[POP3] An attempt to connect to [email scrubbed] failed. This could be caused by temporary server unavailability or incorrect settings. Do you want to check the settings?
