Mail on 10.3.5 keeps going to Offline Mode

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am using OS X on my Mac. Recently, the Mail on 10.3.5 keeps going to offline mode.

When I switch it back to online, it will go offline again when trying to open my emails.

The settings for this are set correctly and yet I was still unable to fix it.

It cannot even hook up to mail or DNS servers.

How will I fix it?

Let me know please.

On the new screen type without quotation: “open (IP address of mail server) port 110

On the prompt type user name and your password

Check whether you are connected with the mail server or some error is displayed

If you are connected, then perform the actions mentioned below; otherwise, try to find the correct log in information
