Will need more info to be able to try and help here.

Please detail what Application (Apple Mail, Microsoft Entourage, Mozilla Thunderbird, other... ) you are using for your mail and what server or Mail provider you are trying to receive mail from

Basically, tell me everything you can about the issue. I need details, lots of details.

I can send e-mail but can't receive. My server is (unfortunately) Fairpoint.

I also have lots of trouble with Safari and more often than not see the beach ball.
Expert:  Mike replied 7 years ago.

I still need to know more please.

What email client are you using? Or do you only use webmail?

I cannot help without assistance from you.

All of a sudden, I began to get my incoming mail. Is it possible that the probem solved itself????
Expert:  Mike replied 7 years ago.
Oh yeah. It may have been a server issue. It is usually on late Saturdays or Sundays that tech people do maintenance. They may have had it offline for a while.

If you need anything else, let us know,
