Android/Unable to setup email

I'm a participant level 2
I'm a participant level 2

My blackberry toast and I inherited an Android.  It's a Sony Ericsson X10.  I'm having issues setting up email. Each time I try to setup my email it doesn't get past the Incoming servers setup.  Even when I manually setup , i get this message,"setup could not finish. unable to open connection to server." I tried setting up my gmail account, even through the app on the phone i get the same message.  i did call Fido and they moved my data plan from BB to android. i can't even log into twitter or facebook.  This is fustrating.  Any suggestion?
