Default Can't Force POP Account

Please Login to Remove!

In regards to a previous thread I had regarding the issues with IMAP, I figured I would re-setup the account as a POP account but when putting in the POP/SMTP server settings for my ISP, it gets rejected each time. Wondering if it is more of an ISP issue than Blackberry but I can't seem to get it to accept the POP settings. i'm really trying to bring back the POP BIS days of the Bold since this new workflow is driving me nuts!

Thanks.

Default Re: Can't Force POP Account

try this and if it does not work check carrier settings.


Add an IMAP or POP email account
Make sure you know the following information from your administrator or email service provider:;
Messaging server type (POP or IMAP);
Incoming and outgoing messaging server address;
Incoming and outgoing messaging server port numbers;
Incoming and outgoing messaging server SSL settings Note: To increase the activation speed of IMAP email accounts, it is recommended that you enter the IMAP Path Prefix. For more information, contact your administrator.
1.On the Add Account screen, tap > IMAP or POP.2.
Enter the account information.;
To set how frequently your BlackBerry device checks for new messages (if push email isn't supported), in the Sync Interval drop-down list, tap an option.;
To change the amount of time that messages can be retrieved on your device, in the Sync Timeframe drop-down list, tap an option.3.
Tap Done.

I figured it out. I managed to get it to work with both IMAP and POP. I had to try every combination until I saw the pattern. The problem is with my ISP, it will not allow me to set an SSL connection for SMTP. It needs to remain off which is not good IMO. What good is sending in the clear? Not sure what else I can do but that was the issue and it applies to both sending with IMAP or POP.

Thanks.

Default Re: Can't Force POP Account

You do realize all data leaving your device, PC or Cellphone is classified as public once it is sent. The Blackberry's main feature is it's ability to encrypt all data in the public zone. A reason why governments use them.
Now the main question. why do you need SSL on an email? Have you tried to use something like Yahoo in browser mode? I use it from my Z1 and 9810 and it goes to SSL mode from the login screens. I don't use it for the SSL but it's does allow me email access without having to add one to the phone.
