    You have entered your data in the Control Panel
    - Mail Server
    - Port
    - User Name
    - Password

    Did you do anything else?

    This message says that you need to define your user name with the the user@example.com format, instead of just user.

    Are you using GMail? They require POP3 over SSL, which won't work.

    I don't know if Yahoo works.

    Does your host use regular ol' POP3, or do they use POP3-over-SSL? If the former, you should be able to make things work. If the latter, then it won't work -- unless someone modifies the wp-mail.php script to speak SSL ...

    I don't know, I'll ask them. I am using Doteasy so I'd have to check.
