The problem with this is that some times there e-mail will stop working and I will have to go in to the e-mail setting and replace "localhost" with "" and remove the "/" from the login name. The e-mail is using POP3. I would like to find out the reason why the incoming mail server changes to "localhost"

Any help would be appricated.

My e-mail address is
