Those systems will be managed by yahoo and karoo - nothing you've done could have caused it, and nothing you can do will fix it. :-\

Contact their support people if it doesn't sort itself out in a while.

Have you tried logging in to your account via a web browser? Perhaps they are wanting you to reconfirm your password.

Try logging in to webmail via a webbrowser - such as
Then try sending using your pop3 client (Outlook Express, Thunderbird etc), WITHOUT closing your internet connection.

have done that with my yahoo account and i'm getting a few through but other people don't seem to be getting mine.

On the (assuming you are using that), there is a box near top right, to access webmail. Karoo status reports all look ok, so no server faults being reported by Karoo.

Try sending an e-mail to yourself, it should be sent via Outlook Express using SMTP and received by Outlook Express using POP3. It should not take very long.
Also try sending a message from Yahoo (using Webmail) to your Karoo account. That may take a while, but will confirm that Karoo is picking up external e-mail.

If you have a JUNK or SPAM folder, check it's contents, should any messages have been incorrectly filtered.
