Support » Fixing WordPress » Posting using POP3 Writing Settings

  • tompears


    I have been failing for MONTHS to get posting by email working. I’m sure that my email account funnyname$ is working. I downloaded a free mozella POP3 client at
    installed it and it can read my email. It says the settings are
    server type: POP Mail Server
    server name: port 110
    user name: funnyname$
    Then it says Security Settings
    Connection Security: STARTLS
    Authentication method: Normal Password

    Likewise in the blog at
    I have entered the following:
    Mail Server: port 110
    Login Name: funnyname$
    Password: xxxxxxx
    Default mail category: uncategorized

    When I go to
    I get a Box that says
    Unable to reload the web page because the server sent no data
    Error code: ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE

    How can I get more info? Can’t I turn on an error log?
    Could the problem be this STARTLS security setting?

    Any help greatly appreciated!
