Using Apple Mail on my iMac, and the SMTP account is connected to the server but the IMAP account remains offline. Have tried everything I can thing of (restart computer, reenter account name and password, try different account names). Nothing seems to work. I'm also getting frequent messages that "mail.mediacombb.net" isn't a valid server.
Still having this problem. If I can access the account it often doesn't download anything for 30 minutes - 2 hours. If I'm waiting for a response or code from some place I have to check my iPad. Very inconsistent as to when email down loads. Haven't resorted to removing the account and trying to add it back. Apple says it is a Mediacom problem. Asked a tech when he was here. He didn't know how to do that but reset my modem connection and deleted passwords I had for my neighbor and other places. I didn't know until I was visiting someone and trying to use their internet. My internet runs slower now.
