Default Re: Yahoo email on older Blackberry's

after working on the mess all day and talking to ATT ( totally useless ) and reading many many sites I think I have found a method to reload the email on older BB's ( OS 10 etc )

I click on add email and add the email address someone @att.net
then it askes for the password and states it needs more in red

The key change is going into advanced and selecting POP and NOT IMAP

Using the standard pop email settings it works

server = inbound.att.net port 995 SSL

server = outbound.att.net port 465 SSL

add passwords etc.

This is the ATT server info via yahoo.

If other providers have POP server info it should work the same.

The refresh rate is about 30 minutes but testing does show test emails come thru.

Hope it works for others.
