Hi and welcome to Just Answer, a Question and Answer Company. My name is Carl and I will be assisting you today.

Which emails are you trying to access exactly and what happens when you try to login?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

emails to my openworld acct. I can log in but no new emails have come in since thursday

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.

Are you using a POP3 / IMAP based account or are you simply logging in using a Web Browser?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

web browser

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
That doesn't make much sense as that would mean that there was an issue on their server. Try sending a test email to it using another email service entirely and see if it comes through. Let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

it came up that connection to server failed.

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
What exactly gave you that error message? The email account that you were trying to send the test email to or the email account that you are having issues with?

Have you tried using another computer yet? If not, do you know someone who's computer you can try to help us narrow this down?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

not at his time of night

Expert:  Carl L replied 4 years ago.
Ok, if you would like to resume this tomorrow that would be fine with me. It's very important that we properly narrow this down if we're going to resolve the issue.

Hi Sue,

Did you have any luck using another computer to narrow this issue down?
