Email not working anymore

I have been trying to figure this ou but it looks like comcast/xfinity has blocked ip addresses on its own network from receiving email.  As of a few days ago I am unable to use Outlook, or even a third party program that I have that sits in the tray and alerts me if I have mail.  When I looked at the logs I see that the IP that I get from comcast is blocked.

 

PopCmdResp: +OK
PopCmdSent: PASS ****
PopCmdResp: -ERR [AUTH] Your IP is on a blocklist, for more details please go to https://www.spamhaus.org/query/ip/73.76.170.161
POP3 response indicates failure.
PASS_response: -ERR [AUTH] Your IP is on a blocklist, for more details please go to https://www.spamhaus.org/query/ip/73.76.170.161

POP3 authentication failed
--Pop3Authenticate
Authentication failed.
Timestamp-3: 1:13:57.387

--VerifyPopLogin

 

Please dont post any nonsense about clearing out the cache or use a different browser.  On a side note, I can access email using the webmail interface but its not what I want to use.

You'll need to clean up your system, or persuade Spamhaus that it isn't dirty.

Re: Email not working anymore

Appreciate the info.  Looks like I will have to block the kids computers again.
