Setting up Road Runner email account on Nook Tablet

I am having problems setting up an email account on my nook tablet.

 

I click on apps

Tools and Utilities

Email

Enter my road runner email address

Password

Manual Setup

POP

I see Username (my email address)

Password

POP3 Server = nycap.r.com

Security =none

Port = 110

Delete email from server = never

Press next

Checking incoming server settings........

Setup could not finish

Unable to open connection to server

 

What am I doing wrong?  I tried shutting down the Tablet completely and redoing this more than 3 times.  I still get the same messages.

 

Please help

Try adding pop-server. prior to nycap.r.com.

Re: Setting up Road Runner email account on Nook Tablet

Had a tough time getting the RR email set up with POP3 incoming server & SMTP outgoing.

 

Where I have XXX, presume enter your RR ISP name (such as ny, etc.).



On the NOOK Tablet:

Incoming settings:

user name (your email address)

password (your RR password)

POP3 server: pop-server.xxxxxxx.rr.com

Port: 110

Outgoing settings:

SMTP Server: mobile-smtp.roadrunner.com

Port: 25

username: (your email address)

password (your RR password)

Re: Setting up Road Runner email account on Nook Tablet

AssumingAssuming its the same email client that is on the Nook Color enter your mail address andpassword, then tap next.  At the next screen select POP or IMAP.  I am using a POP account.  Tap ok. Next enter your POP3 server.  (incoming)  Tap next.  At the next screen enter your SMTP server (outgoing)
