Is there any chance at all that:
- you could install Thunderbird or Eudora and try connecting with that
- the ISP has changed their POP server, so it now advertises a POP
Outlook can/will not support? or even changed the POP server
that it doesn't support broken clients like Outlook*?
- you could run a protocol analyser or packet sniffer on the firewall
investigate the problem at the wire level? This will often point out
those "duh!" problems such as looking up the wrong host name...
I don't know about POP, but IMAP support in Outlook is broken, because
it sends IMAP messages that aren't correctly formatted during the
session initialisation, and expects headers from the server that are
broken the same way.
