    You should carefully compare your account settings with those on a Windows machine where you *can* access your mail. Are you using SSL, TLS or STARTTLS? Is the port correct? Etc.

    I just checked a windows machine and the settings are exactly the same,the windows settings are as follows:

    POP3 server
    Incoming server": mail.petrahigh.co.zw
    Outgoing server": mail.petrahigh.co.zw

    Normal logon (without secure password authentication)

    I would ask the mail provider about know issues with mail clients or Linux other wise you may have to wait for someone who uses the mail service to find out what settings are being used. If the sever is not located automatically during account setup then a manual entry won't do any good.
