After working for about 6 months, em Client can no longer connect to my Earthlink mail account

Account settings look right.  Able to connect to Earthlink webmail direct so userid/password is good.  Log says

6:44:29 PM     “Unable to read data from the transport connection: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.”

Please disregard.  I recycled my computer and now em Client can connect to Earthlink.
