intermittent problem connecting to pop server from Android

I am having an intermittant problem connecting my Android to the POP mail server.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I get a connection error. 

Before you ask: I do not have a problem with my Mac laptop running Mac Mail. 

I have tried 5 different mail apps on the Android wiht the same results. 

The Xfinity Connect app for the Android does not do POP (it deletes email from the server). 

I can access my email using the web browser on the Android. 

My favorite mail app is K9. 

Sometmes I can get it to work by logging on and off Xfinity on the phone.  But, it will only connect 1 time when it does work.  


This setup has worked perfectly since April.  Suddenly stopped working last week.
