Thanks for the advice on sending files to my Web server.  That’s working

I am now trying to access email.  Ipopd is running on my server – i.e. I
can send myself email (to martynw@billyfirestudios.com) and when I type
telnet localhost pop-3
and log in, it tells me I have messages.  (This also works if, instead
of typing 'localhost'. I type in the actual fixed IP address of my
machine, or mail.billyfirestudios.com or www.billyfirestudios.com)
I now want to be able to 'pop' the email from my Web server to my
Windows client.  
In my client mail system (under Outlook) I have tried various pop
addresses, e.g. mail.billyfirestudios.com, www.billyfirestudios.com, and the actual fixed IP address of the machine etc but I do
not seem to get a connection.

I am also able to run the telnet command from my Windows client i.e.
when I type: 

telnet mail.billyfirestudios.com 110 

using the 'RUN' command, it works fine.

I feel I must be close but missing something obvious.  Any advice would
be gratefully received.
