    Yahoo Pop mail isnt working on my phone

    i can wap over my phone and my phone has a POP email access (T68). "it cannot find server" when i try checking my email using POP on my phone. i have everything configured correctly:

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Account Name/Login Name: blove57
    E-mail address: blove57@yahoo.com
    Password: password

    why is it not working? I even registered for Yahoo! Delivers. im able to access the web on my phone. has anyone gotten it to work for them?

    I havent tried POP mail on my T68 but I think you can WAP and check your yahoo mail using the mobile.yahoo.com portal I think --

    pop access for yahoo requires some sort of encryption (this is a new thing) and I am not sure of teh T68 mail application has that.

    yea actually you can go to wap.yahoo.com and check your mail. but it takes a stroke of luck stay online long enough to compose a message and send it over wapping without getting disconnected. it would be nice to compose a letter (or two) on the phone and send it and download your mail too.

    i recall in one of the posts that someone got pop mail, yahoo too i think, to work but only through GPRS. that encryption thing youre talking about sounds about right because all the settings look fine. no reason for it not to work. i even tried the IP addresses for the pop3 and smtp.

    Just checked my Entourage settings.
    Yahoo requires "authentication" in order to access it's servers.
    This is only on my SMTP settings though -- weird.
    I wouldnt check email on my T68 anyway ;-)
    You never know what it can handle in terms of size -- that is why I have a PDA :-)

    the solution is to change the smtp server to something that would work with your connection. for me, since im on voicestream, smtp.voicestream.com works.

    Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.voicestream.com
    Account Name/Login Name: blove57
    E-mail address: blove57@yahoo.com

    It should work. Many of my E-mail accounts set up on Outlook Express are done this way. POP3 from SFU. SMTP to Telus. So I can check mail and get them from the SFU account, and send mail via Telus. It doesn't matter which server you use to send mail, as long as you got the message sent its fine. However you must use a specific POP3 account inorder to get mails off the account you want.

    Did you try the IP addresses rather than the URLs?

    POP3 = 216.136.173.10

    SMTP = 216.136.173.12

    when you use pop email , do they charge you by airtime like wap, or they charge you per email message?

    For Fido, airtime. However long you are connected. Won't charge you for composing time as long as you compose then dial then send then end instead of dial then compose then send then end.

    VS charges just like you were WAPPING. If you are using dial-up it takes away your minutes. If you are connected via GPRS it is by megabyte.

    i thought that fido charge 10cents per emails... coz this is what i'm using right now... i have the email address @fido.ca that they forward to my t18z phone

    so i guess when sending a email via wap, it use your minute... so that is fine for me, since i never go over my airtime...

    i will get the t39 soon and try this

    For Telus Mobility, it's free!

    I have my Yahoo configured for My Inbox, where I can send and receive my Yahoo mail, which is completely synchronized with Yahoo's server.
