On my iMac, When i click on mail, I sometimes get a message that reads.

The server returned the error: The connection to the server “mail.nw.centurytel.net” on port 110 timed out.

Can anyone tell me what this means?

I am running OSX 10.6.8 THANK YOU

What it means is that the email account associated with that server is timing out (essentially Apple Mail is a submitting a request for information and the request is not being sent back from the email server). Are you able to log in to that email account via their web mail (As in going to your account through your web browser). You could also try deleting and adding the account again and see if that helps but it could again just be an issue with the email server.
