roadrunner Email locked by another session

Have been getting this error off and on for a while but today it seems to be completely locked up. 

 

Task 'myemail@roadrunner.com' - Receiving ' reported error (0x8004210E): Your mailbox is temporarily unavailable because another email message is being delivered to it or another mail application is accessing it. The server responded: - ERR [IN-USE] account is locked by another session or for maintenance, try again. 

 

I use Outlook as my email client and it's been working fine for the last several years. 

 

So what's the issue? I can send but I cannot receive. Webmail seems to work fine.

Hi,

 

Cable providers were never designed to be email providers.  Road Runner email is dated by about fifteen-twenty years.  I strongly recommend switching to a Webmail provider such as Yahoo Mail, Gmail, or Outlook.com.  Better security, more reliable, and always up to date.

 

Additionally, you can use a Webmail account on any device with Internet access for the rest of your life.  Office Suites for free are available as well with Gmail (Google Drive) and Outlook.com (Office Online.) which provides about 80% of the paid Office versions.  Roadrunner is too dated and to much of a security risk to be used anymore.

 

If you don't have an ad-blocker for each of your browsers when moving to Webmail, get Ad Block plus for each browser.  You should have only one ad-blocker per browser, as more than one will conflict.
