email problems....

I just moved from the original Nook to a Nook color and am having problems setting up my email address.  My brother [a techie] has set up a family email through Gmail.  It works fine on my Thunderbird email software, but I can't get it to work on Nook.  Can anyone offer any suggestions???

Re: email problems....

These are the settings I have for my Gmail account in the NC Mail App:

 

Gmail: (needs whole username, before AND after the @

This only works for me as an IMAP, not as pop3

 

Incoming:

 

IMAP server: imap.gmail.com

Security tupe: SSL

Port: 993

IMAP path prefix: Optional

 

Outgoing:

 

SMTP: smtp.gmail.com

Security: SSL

Port: 465

Require sign-in: checked

 

Hope that helps!

Re: email problems....

I'm a little confused by your response.  My email address is ljh@hussmail.com so for my user name do I put in ljh@ljh.hussmail.com???

 

Thanks for your quick response!!!

You said in your original post that your brother had set up a gmail account, and it was working in thunderbird - that led me to believe you have a gmail email account.

 

You need to find out what the server settings and such are for "hussmail.com" and enter those - they will be the same as the settings in thunderbird.

Re: email problems....

Kalamarose, is your gmail accounts through Google Apps? It seems so, given the custom domain name.

 

There are problems when using email through Google Apps such as lack of support for Exchange etc.

 

So you'll have to check.

Re: email problems....

@frntr,

There has been a glitch with gmail accounts with the 2.06 update. Alex has posted a workaround under the discussion board "Nook News".
