Anyone else still having problems with this? I'm still getting an error similar to the OP when I try webmail and when I try with Thunderbird it craps out too.

I just tried to access an Oceanfree mail account I haven't used in years. I can log on to the webmail interface and view the contents of my inbox the last time I checked mail. But when I try to retrieve new mail I get the error:

E28: Error reading from pop/smtp (Success)
W10: Cannot login to host (pop.oceanfree.net:110)
W11: User or Password incorrect for <my user name> (-ERR Temporary problem, please try again later

I have another account that has no problem. It seems the webmail and POP passwords are out of sync for the old account. The 'Help' and 'Forgot Your Password?' links on the Oceanfree site are broken!

Guys, get some new email accounts.

Oceanfree is what, 5mb of space? Awful web interface that will never be upgraded (hasn't been for years) and has a really interesting bug where if you type in the @oceanfree.net part of your mail address instead of just the username it fubars your account and is basically unfixable.

This is probably what happened to your account LibraMan.

Wonderful....meh it doesn't look like it's going to be fixed at this stage. I was mainly using it for boards mails and a few other mailing lists.

I used it back in 2001 for like 10 days and then joined hotmail, then yahoo, then walla, then gmail and now back to good ol' yahoo(Best interface EVER)

Hi there, does anybody know how to close down a dormant E-Mail account at Oceanfree.net, as I keep getting spam messages delivered to the Oceanfree.net account and I don't use it anymore but the messages are being forwarded to my present G-Mail account. Proper pain in the ass.

In Gmail settings just remove the OceanFree email account under Settings>Accounts should work? I doubt it's possible to have these accounts closed down as the companies keeping them going wouldn't be keen on maintaining them I imagine. A lot of these will possibly go the Unison.ie road.
