I have made sure that all of the settings are correct and I still can’t log in

If you have had trouble logging in and have failed several times, especially when correcting the connection details then it is possible that your IP address may have been temporarily banned from the mail server. This is where the protection setup to prevent people obtaining access to your email by guessing the login details has kicked in. In this scenario you can either wait 30 minutes and try again with the correct connection details, or if in doubt and the problem persists you may need to contact us and supply us with your IP address so that we investigate. You can find out what your IP address is by simply typing into google ‘whats my IP’.
