    Default Has anyone had issues trying to set up your emails?

    I'm trying to set up my pacbell.net and sbcglobal.net accounts. But every time I do this. I get

    Warning "Cannot connect to the mail server to verify your account information. Your server is not responding.

    Anyone else have this issue.
    I've tried doing this via wifi and over the vzw network, with the same results.

    This almost always indicates you have entered some bad info. From a quick check, it looks like pacbell's email server is mail.pacbell.net and sbcglobal's is pop.sbcglobal.net and smtp.sbcglobal.net. Is that what you are using? Do either one of them require non standard ports? SSL? Also, are you trying to setup the type of client that you know they support? (pop, imap, exchange, etc).

    If you are unsure of this information either go to their webpage and research the mail settings or call them to find out.

    The spacing came out all weird, but you look carefully. You will be able to see the POP and SMTP
