I have had the same "Charter" email for over 20 years. Suddenly last night it stopped sending and receiving and the error message above displays on my Samsung S20+. My home pc wants me to sign in as well, but does not connect to this email.

I have two email addresses with Spectrum. Both have the same settings, but only one functions. Ideas? I have talked to Spectrum and they don't have an answer.

    No luck. Bank account hacked last week. Don't know if they are related somehow.

    i can't login in no matter what. I believe my old email acccount is gone forever. The real bummer is there was no warning at all. The positive is that my email has been pawned so many times that I recieved about 500 spam messages a week. I recently had a fraud occurrence with my bank account, so all things considered it may be for the best.

    That's definitely frustrating for sure but we do want to make sure you're able to access your email accounts. Do you receive an error message or code if you click on Forgot Email Password under and enter your email address and modem MAC address?

    I have another charter email account I set up when I moved to my new house 3 years ago. I am using that now. It's unfortunate because I had many important subfolders that were lost.

    At the same time, I started receiving this same error message. Is there a resolution yet?
