    Question Help with accessing email

    Hi everyone,
    I just bought my HTC and don't know how to set up my email so that I have access to it at all times. My email address is [email]xxxxxxx@bellsouth.net but to login I type in att.net which redirects me to the yahoo page http://att.my.yahoo.com. I read somewhere there is problems with logging into email with yahoo. Please help me - I am not tech savvy!

    Hello, You will probably have to manually set up your phone.
    Click add new e-mail and select Other (POP/IMAP)
    Select Manual setup
    Protocol: POP
    E-mail Address:Type your e-mail address
    Username:Again, type your entire e-mail address
    Password: Your password
    Pop Server: mail.bellsouth.net
    Security: blank
    Port: 110

    Let me know how this goes for you.
    I'm in Broward and have nothing else to do with 6 weeks off, let me know if you need anymore help. I grabbed the info from the setup for outlook.

    I haven't seen any solutions (including the above) that will let me send through bellsouth. Using a gmail account instead to check the bellsouth address and send as it. Please post if you get sending to work!

    On a similar note, what setup should be used for a POP (Yahoo, Hotmail) account? What download frequency, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, aren't e-mails pushed anyway (except for Yahoo as I understand)? Any other settings I should consider, hidden tricks?

    I have already updated to stock 2.1 Sprint Hero.

    Hey road I'm on my phone otherwise I'd post a link but Jerry wrote a great article on how to use gmail as your personal push server for addresses other than gmail. I don't believe it works for yahoo but it will save you some battery life by having emails pushed rather than pulled.

    Go to www.androidcentral.com and search "gmail push" and it will be the first article you see.

    I found the solution in androidforums.com. Here's the link (go to the las post at the bottom): Bellsouth Email Settings? - Android Forums

    Basically, this is what I did:
    Incoming mail server type: POP3
    Incoming (POP): pop.att.yahoo.com
    Incoming User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. )
    Incoming mail port #: 995, secure connection (SSL) checked

    Outgoing (SMTP): smtp.att.yahoo.com, with authentication (same user and password as POP)
    Outgoing User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. )
    Outgoing mail port # 465, secure connection (SSL) checked

    I was connected to wifi at the time I set it up.

    Good luck!

    Angry Re: Help with accessing email

    anyone know how to fix this problem? I have a bellsouth.net email account working on my phone with all the personal folders that I created. Tonight, the email stopped working. I deleted the account, put it back in. Nothing. So I researched and changed the incoming/outgoing servers. Got my email account back with my inbox, but my personal folders are still missing; Anyone know how to get my folders back? Its a real pain to keep all my email in the inbox.
    Thanks
