Incoming emails suddenly stopped 12/30/2019 - POP timeout

Has anyone else experienced timeouts with receiving emails recently - error message reads ' Receiving reported error (0x8004210A):  The operation timed out waiting for a response from the receiving (POP) server.  I'm using Outlook.  Settings are fine.  Suddenly stopped.   Comcast support no help.

My husband and I are both having the exact same issue.  I can't find anything online to resolve the problem.  Hoping someone posts something here.

I am having the same issue!

 

Sometime in December of 2019 I stopped receiving emails.  I thought it may be that I was using Outlook 2007, so I upgraded to 2019.  I am still unable to receive emails and the "help" desk folks were absolutely worthless.  I spent over 2 hours on the phone, twice, and all I got was that it was on my end.

 

It stopped working.  It worked before.  I changed nothing.  I spent money to upgrade, as recommended, it still did not work.  Comcast - it is on your end.  Please fix it.

 

This is getting to be a problem and I am thinking of reporting it to the BBB and broadcasting it on the internet.  I may even get the local television station involved, if that's what it takes.
