    Default K9 Mail - how to delete an account/outgoing mail issues

    Hi there,

    I want to try K9 Mail. I set up a pop account for it and then set up the account in K9 Mail. Incoming mail is/was working fine. However, I could not get the settings right for outgoing mail - kept getting the error that it couldn't connect to the server. I tried all the authentication settings, username and username@mypopacct.net - nothing I tried would make the outgoing smtp mail thing work.

    Sooooo, I'm wanting to delete the account and start over but I I can't find where to delete/remove the account in K9 Mail. I was able to delete it from the phone settings but not K9 mail.

    Secondly, although I know individual servers play the biggest part of the settings, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the smtp to work? The help page at my ISP must be old or something because what it tells me to do for Android phones doesn't work either.

    I'm thinking I set it up as POP and maybe should have set it up as IMAP but I also can't find in K9 where to edit this.

    Your help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    If you're using WiFi that could mess things up. Wrong setup from smtp can do it itoo.

    It's my ISP's charter.net. I found a workaround for the smtp issue so you can skip that. I just need to know now how to delete an account in K9.

    This is what I used for my outgoing mail workaround:

    K-9 / Press on account you want to remove and hold / Advanced / Remove account.

    Do you have this account in outlook and working? Go to Tools ?? / account settings and click on the email address and it should list all of the settings that you need (and are working). You may need to click on more seettings in lower right coner to verify more settings.
