What is wrong with email??

I've been having probelms since Friday - can you just admit if you are having issues?? My home email is fine, but when I check my inbox from comcast.net all the emails in my inbox are gone except the once I received today. They are not in the trash (been asked that already). Here's the message that appears in red:

External Account Failure

Retrieving messages for the following external account has failed:

lfrollick%40comcast_pop3 (failing since 11/30/12 12:23pm)

Error: system dailure: unable to connect to POP3 server
