BTW - for Yahoo CLASSIC email - just tried setting it up... it works -
just brought up the email app -
then went to Accounts
touch - Add Account -
it prompted for email address & password
warned about Yahoo, etc
It set everything up behind the scenes - and worked
I brought up my local network protocol analyzer
to see "what" the Nook was using to contact Yahoo classic email.
For incoming - it's IMAPS with port 993 -
and server - 22.214.171.124
For outgoing - it's SMTP with port 465
and server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Then, looking at the Nook email folders,
it has ALL of them, not just the Inbox -
thus confirming that the IMAP protocol is being used
and not POP3 protocol.
BTW - looking at the Nook Color email account settings,
it appears that the Yahoo servers change & redirect
Here are the Yahoo Classic account Server Settings from the Nook...
username - just the name, no domain suffix
IMAP Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
security type - none
port - 143
IMAP path prefix - optional
SMTP server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
security type - none
port - 587
Requires sign-in - checkmarked
Username - just user, no domain suffix

I just updated to V1.30 and tried again to install my old +10yr old Yahoo account. No nC take!
Constant erronious error PU stating either user name or PW is wrong.... POP/IMAP no difference, nC auto or manual no difference - no take!
Has anyone installed a Yahoo account in/after Aug 2011, (after) the new Yahoo FREE email web face was forced upon all Yahoo users?
If sucessful - how did you do it?

Thanks just got my nook color ---love it- I thought I change my incoming server port number--needed verification that it was 143...
What I don't see is the little notification icon for incoming mail--even though I have it checked..I send myself emails to check..Nothing apperas on notifacation bar--so I have to go to email & have to hit syc button in the email to see new mail?
Also--has anyone did the rooting to get driod apps? does it change the home page appearance or anything--becuase I like the layout as is
All the best,

Don't root, it voids warranty.
Instead seek the purchase the Android OS on a SIM card for the nC.
One thing nC does is it will FIRST look at the memory card slot for booting. If another OS is present it will boot up into it - like Android.
The card I got actually has a pre-boot loader selection menu that allows me to select which OS I want, traditional nC or the card Android.
If anything goes haywire with your nC, pull the SIM card and send it in, no one will know.

Wow. Amazing how many people are ignorant about something as simple as email. Why you're asking here is beyond me. You need to be asking your ISPs (Internet Service Provider, or the people you pay every month so you can go online) for that info.

Has anyone found a way to get Road Runner email working on the Nook Color?
Roadrunner works fine. All mail accounts do. The settings for Roadrunner are clearly posted on rr.com. Did you look there?

I did this same thing when I first got my Nook and was able to to connect to Yahoo's free email with no problem. Since then, I have changed my password on Yahoo and for some reason, I can no longer connect with the Nook email app...not sure what the problem is at this time.
I use the free Yahoo, I've had my acct for almost 10 years, and I just entered my email acct ID, password and the NC did all the rest. I didn't have to figure out anything. And it connects as POP.

I had the same problem-I took it in to b&n and all they did was delete my old account and then added it in again and it worked fine-this has happened twice so I know it will work-hope this helps-

I just spent 3 hours attempting to get pop3 to work with gmail. FORGET IT. The implementation of pop on the nook color has too many problems to make it workable.
POP works much like an old point to point phone connection in that you ask for mail to be delivered to you from a server and the server sends it to you. Generally speaking, a copy of that mail remains on the server until you sign on and delete it from your PC.
With the introduction of wireless networks and more advanced technology, IMAP came to be. As opposed to a one way conversation, it essentially operates as a two way conversation in that email is still delivered to your "remote device", but once you have read a particular email, it is marked on the server as "read". Also, if you delete it from the remote device, then it will be deleted from the server via a TWO WAY conversation.
I configured my gmail account for IMAP and then went to the Nook and did the same and tested it all and it appears to be working fine. I would recommend that you use this configuration as opposed to POP.

I have pop email working just fine on our nook tablet. Well, by fine I mean it sends and recieves mail. But , it does not seem to really download the email. I say that becuse if I have a message in the inbox on the nook and then go to the pc and access the email account, which then downloads the mail to the pc, the message disappear from the nook. Not the way a pop3 is suppose to work

Yes.... Yahoo will set up just fine, on Nook Color or Tablet.
Incoming settings: Username = full Yahoo email address. / IMAP server: imap.mail.yahoo.com // Security type: SSL // Port: 993. IMAP path prefix: " Optional " (so don't put one....).
Outgoing Yahoo settings: SMTP Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com // Security type: SSL // Port: 465
For Cox (or other providers) be sure to put Outgoing SMTP settings for the DEFAULT email provider (Yahoo, in my case). For Incoming Cox, Pop3 is: pop.west.cox.net // Security: SSL // Port: 995.
Of course, if you live back East.....put: pop.east.cox.net. ;-)
Reboot by holding your power and "n" key at the same time, after inputting the settings. Enjoy!

I have all of the information that you have given entered in my outgoing mail except for username. My username has numbers in it and I am unable to enter those numbers. for example Jen980@blah.com. I can enter Jen@blah.com but no numbers any idea why? I have been able to set up the incoming mail and receive it fine, just can't send any mail out. Thanks
