This would seem to be the problem.

Did I set things up incorrectly?

On PopTray's ACCOUNTS Tab...
Set the SERVER to 127.0.0.1
Set PORT to 9999

For POP3 access, set LOGIN to (YOUR POP SERVER) / 110 / (YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT)
So for POP3 access it would look like this : mail.poptray.org/110/kydave@poptray.org

Your PASSWORD stays as is.

SAVE ACCOUNTS.

Yep, that's not a real mail server. "mail.poptray.org" is just an example.

In the place where "mail.poptray.org" is written, that is the place you put YOUR actual mail server address.

If you have it working in Outlook Express...
In OE, TOOLS, ACCOUNTS, PROPERTIES, SERVERS, Copy the entry in the ACCOUNT NAME Box and Paste it in PopTray's LOGIN Box.

Dave, thank you for all your help, PopTray is now notifying again. I've become so accustomed to it that if I had to choose between K9 and PT as my notifier I'd have chosen PT. It's kind of a testimonial to just how good PopTray is that my requests for help were x% of all of the requests during the past several days.
I'd like to mention one thing though that may help others. Even after making the correction to the LOGIN I could not connect. I did some probing and realized (hoped) that the problem was the fact that at the end of that field I was still using "@my isp" as opposed to the directions in the general setup instructions Interface>Accounts>Login "(Usually the part before the @ in your e-mail address)". Because of this, you may want to amend the K9 instruction where it states "mail.poptray.org/110/kydave@poptray.org" by dropping the @... or at least adding the "usually..... part. Thank you again! Larry

You're welcome and I'm glad you got your setup working.

Per your suggestion, I amended the instructions...
(Some POP3 email servers may require your email accont login to include the domain name, others may not.)
Thanks
