make sure your login name and password are correct with Roadrunner:
telnet pop-server.nc.rr.com 110
Put in your username and password as appropriate. This will tell you whether
your setup is correct.

Subject: [TriLUG] kmail and RoadRunner
Question from a linux newby here.
I have RH 7.2 loaded with KDE and kmail. My provider is RoadRunner,
Cable modem is connected directly to an ethernet card.
I can't get the RoadRunner address
to recieve mail, but I can send mail on that account , I clicked the use
sendmail box for that in the kmail setup. As far as the pop server setup
the server name is pop-server.nc.rr.com which I have in the pop server
box as well as my log in name and password. When I try to recieve
the mail from the roadrunner account I get an error saying connection
to server refused. I am 100% certain that the login name, password and
server name are correct. Any ideas?
I am not really a newby, as I have been using a piece of software called
EMC (enhanced machine controller) for a couple of years now. It runs
under linux with real time extensions. It is running on a dedicated CNC
machine computer in my garage, but I am now trying to get it up and running
on my main computer, with internet access and all the bells and whistles.
Problem is, I know nothing about networking, and the CNC computer really
dosen't need much interaction except start it up, copy a part file to it and
run the program. I know some of the commands and can navigate the
file system using either a shell, KDE's konqueror or midnight commander.
