Pop servers?

Would some kind soul tell me the POP3 servers for Fast Mail? I tried a year or so ago to set up forwarding in FM but was never able to get it to work I would give it another try if someone would steer me in right direction

For POP3, use pop.fastmail.com on port 995 with SSL. You will need to use an App password (see https://www.fastmail.com/help/clients/apppassword.html).

Basic forwarding is not complicated, but issues can sometimes arise, especially when receiving from mailing lists. If you set up a forwarding Rule in the past, and encountered problems, perhaps you could explain the issue before we try to provide advice.

I believe POP3 should work for trial accounts. Is it possible that you were trying during the approximately 30 minute outage earlier today?

As soon as you pay (which you can do at any time) the account ceases to be a trial account.
