Default PlayBook Suddenly Requests POP password

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

I've been using the PlayBook's native email ever since I downloaded OS 2 shortly after it became available earlier this year. I'd never had any issues until yesterday.

Yesterday morning, I was receiving email properly but after a while I noticed the emails weren't displaying in the right hand pane. I assumed this was because of a bad wifi connection (I was on a charter bus).

I then didn't use the playbook for a number of hours and turned it off altogether.

When I turned it back on, upon booting up, a pop up box requested that I enter my Sympatico.ca POP password.

I tried to access Sympatico/Bell mail through mobile Hotmail and to my surprise, I had the same pop up box. I was able to logout of hotmail and then attempted to log onto a hotmail account. I couldn't log in at all.

Anybody else experience these issues? Can it be related to the changes at hotmail last week (I had to log into Outlook.com to properly see my mail on my home computer)?
