First time I entered my Yahoo mail, I got a connection error message on full WiFi strength. I also got a popup listing that some Yahoo accounts don't work. Decided it didn't matter, and entered my gmail, since Yahoo gets forwarded there anyway. Got the same connection error.
Wasn't too deeply concerned, as they're both browser-based, so I moved on to a different app, put down my NC, fiddled around on the boards, and lo and behold, there's a notif on my NC when I go back to it saying I have new email.
It took roughly five to ten minutes for my email and NC to sync up with each other, all told, but now it works fine. (I mentioned this in another post, but I figured I'd repost here in case anyone else was wondering about it taking a while to load either gmail or yahoo in the app.)
Also, I have no idea what a POP3/whatever else you all were talking about is-- could someone enlighten me in the event I run into this question at work?

Tried Tech support on the board.
No reply. Guess they're all over here.
If you don't know the settings for your specific ISP go to their website and there should be a faq's on the settings.

I set up my email accounts with no problem. Initially, all 4 accounts downloaded mail from the server with no problem. But when I went to "Combined Inbox", it got hung up on "Loading messages". Now, when I choose the mailboxes individually, sometimes they work and other times, they hang on the "Loading messages" screen. Anyone else having this issue?
UPDATE: In playing around with this, I discovered that if there are new emails to be downloaded, it loads them without a problem, both in the individual inboxes and in the Combined Inbox. The hang-up appears to happen only when there are no new emails (and I'm checking the accounts before the next scheduled check by the NC). I also noticed that on the individual inboxes for each email, if I use the sync button at the bottom of the screen, it usually stops the "Loading messages" screen, on those occasions when it doesn't stop on its own. This doesn't seem to help on the "Combined Inbox", though.

My gmail is set up, but everytime I open a message, I get thrown back into the apps main menu. I tried changing the settings, but get thrown back into the main menu there too. Anyone lese have this problem?

Email app worked fine until I tried to change it to a 5 minute notification.
Now I get a connection error or a 'user name or password incorrect'
Nowhere are there any instructions as to where and how to change the password.
The first go round I ended up having my main gmail account on my PC disabled. TMALSS I finally got it back and had to change my password. This I was able to do on the PC, cell, and NC when I accessed gmail from the website.
From the app is a whole 'nother story.

Spoke with tech support.
Had to delete email and reinstall.
At least now I can access email.
As far as the notification issue, it still doesn't work.
The tech suggested I uninstall and reinstall the update but would lose
everything. With all my stuff in addition to BN books to redo I decided in the scheme of things
the notification is a non-issue and will just hit refresh.
What was really important was to regain my email access.
Gads, what a night

If you are using ATT with a @bellsouth.net email address:
- Incoming Server - pop.att.yahoo.com
- Outgoing Server - smtp.att.yahoo.com
- Incoming Port - 995 (requires SSL)
- Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL)
- Username: full email address ( -----------------@bellsouth.net
- Password: is the password you login to you bellsouth account
This worked for me; hope it does for you

I was having trouble setting up mine, Used the advice to put mail. in front of server name....that worked but using smtp. in front of server name for outgoing mail did not. so I put mail. in front of outgoing and VIOLA.....works fine. Go to your email web site and (in my case) search for android (iphone) type settings.
