MobileMail not working with regular email

I have an LG Gossip, I setup a Gmail account in MobileMail and it is working well.

I tried to setup another email under "other" (which is my regular email account) and I get "Communication error, Please try again later"

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Mike

Re: MobileMail not working with regular email

Hello lilimike,

The following e-mails are supported within MobileMail:

- Windows Live Mail (MSN)
- Yahoo! Mail
- Rogers Yahoo! Mail (rogers.com)
- Gmail
- POP3

If your regular e-mail is not in one of the above mentioned format, it will not be compatible.

If it is a POP3 e-mail, you will be required to enter the settings manually. To make sure that those settings are the right ones, I would refer you to your e-mail service provider.

Please let us know how it goes Smiley

Re: MobileMail not working with regular email

The choices I have on my phone are:

Rogers Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail

Windows Live Mail

Gmail

Other Email

 

My regular email is a POP3 account so I figured I should select "Other Mail"

When I do I only have 2 fields to fill-out, Email and Password.

For my ISP my email and username is the same.

 

Still doesn't work.

 

You refer to "Settings manually", where would that be?

 

Thanks.

Re: MobileMail not working with regular email

Hello again,

Normally, you should be prompted for your settings if the application is not able to find them by itself.

@ Community:

Does anyone have MobileMail and could assist lilimike with this matter?
