EMAIL ISSUES

Anyone having a problem connecting to email?

I keep getting "setup could not finishm unable to open connection to server".

This is on IMAP or POP.

I have know idea which one to choose so I tried both.

Same message.

Mine is a Pop3 and on my LG Expo Smartphone, I was never able to set up my "main" email account. I entered all the info and spent days trying to get it to work before just giving up.

 

I'm wondering if I will have the same problem setting up my "main" email on the NC. I'm not ready to try yet (time constraints) but will post an update if I'm successful.

Re: EMAIL ISSUES

I had the same problem and just solved it. Put mail. In front of the pop server name. That seemed to solve it for me. Mousie

Re: EMAIL ISSUES

That fixed mine.  Outgoing server should have smtp in front of it.

 

Ex.  comcast.net would be   mail.comcast.net (for incoming server)  and the outgoing (sending server) smtp.comcast.net

Whether I use POP or IMAp it already says 'mail.com'.

Re: EMAIL ISSUES

I was able to get a Gmail account set-up pretty quickly.  The one thing though is that it does not auto update. I sent a test e-mail to my Gmail account and my phone buzzed instantly but I had to manually refresh my Nook to see the e-mail.

Checked mine after reading your post.

Sent test email. Smartphone came up right away.

Waited a few minutes for NC email to kick in.

Didn't.

Clicked synch botton at bottom left. Arrows spun around.

Only after I did this did the email notification appear in the status bar.

A little late.....

An obvious glitch.....

I had the same problem.

Turns out I left out a letter when I entered my email address.

Recheck how you entered your email and password.

Sure would like to know I wasn't the only one who had a duh moment LOL.

Re: EMAIL ISSUES

I also had trouble with my att email. It wouldn't let me use POP, so I used IMAP.

 

Found this from Yahoo! Mobile Help:

 

 

  • Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
  • Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL)
  • Username: full email address (bill@yahoo.com)
  • Password: is the password you login to Yahoo! with
  •  

     

    Worked for me. Good luck!

    No issues at all, except how do you do a mass deletion from the trash folder without having to check each individual email?

    Re: EMAIL ISSUES

    No problems here either...just glad to have the email app. Don't think there is a way to do a mass delete from trash...
