So. I’m getting this strange error on my site:
Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: unable to connect to mail.example.com:110 in /home/jareddre/public_html/wp-includes/class-pop3.php on line 87
Along with strange emails with the subject: wp-mail error, which read: Ooops POP3 connect: Error  [Success].
After talking to my hosting provider, I was given this advice:
This error means that the wp-includes/class-pop3.php script is trying to connect to mail.example.com on port 110 (pop3’s port). I am guessing “example.com” doesn’t exist. There is most likely a pop3 related thing in wordpress somewhere. You will want to bring this up to the wordpress forums.
Any ideas on how to stop this? It’s not really a problem site wise, but i get constant annoying error emails.
