My pop3 e-mail (not exchange) stops working about once every 1-2 days. It looks for mail, but doesn't return any results, even though there is mail in the account.I have to delete the account and start over to get it to work
Ever since the latest OTA update, the 3G on my Eris just stops working when I wake it up. The 3G icon at the top tool bar disappears even though the Mobile Widget I have on one of my screens says that it's on. So what I have to do is toggle the Mobile Widget to turn 3G off then on again. But oh wait, sometimes the Mobile Widget doesn't even respond so I have to go to settings and turn off then on the 3G. This is really annoying and this happens with my aunt's Droid Eris too. Any ideas on what my aunt and I should do?
I've setup email on my hero in the mail app. It works fine for a couple of days and then suddenly it just stops working. I've tried it with a yahoo account and a gmail account in the mail app and both do the same thing. Using the gmail account I have set it up so its using exchange server. It works fine for a couple of days, it pushes email to my hero fine but then after a couple of days it will stop working. Even if i click the refresh icon it wont retrieve my email. I have to delete the account and set it up again to get it working again.Why is this happening? Obviously the settings are correct otherwise it wouldn't work for the first couple of days and then stop. Help really appreciated as this is the only issue i am having with the phone now.
I have K-9 set to check mail every min. I see in the notification where it says "sending mail", but it does not check incoming mail. I have tested both the incoming and outgoing ports and they both pass. What do I have to do to get it to check my incoming mail? If I do a manual "check mail", then it receives it fine.
New user and new Droid owner here. As a previous BB Curve owner, I was pretty excited to drop the clunky BB OS in favor of a more user friendly device. I am trying to get my email set up on my Droid. I have my personal email through my webhost (Dreamhost.com) which allows us to have either IMAP or POP3 email access. I have attempted to set up each on my phone and still have similar issues. 1. Emails constantly show up dated 12/31/1969 - typically these are auto generated emails from eBay or CRON based emails from some applications I have developed. Is there an known issue with the way the OS reads auto-generated time stamps? 2. Multiple notifications received on same emails. Once again tied back to my additional POP3/IMAP account, but I receive the notification icon of new emails after I have read them - and even sometimes deleted them from my Droid. 3. Not so much an email issue, but a general question. Is there a way to "unlock" the phone other than sliding the screen up or pressing the top botton?
I have two pop3 email accounts set up on the Driod and I'm wondering if there is a way to set it so the last 30 days or so of emails are saved on the droid, even after dowloading them at home and deleting them from the server?Right now, the droid only shows email that is still sitting on the server. On the BB i had, it used to download a copy of all pop3 email to the device and the copy would stay there unless i manually deleted in on the BB.
I am having some very annoying email problems that I have fought with for almost a week, researched and tried multiple programs, and followed about every tutorial on this and similar sites to make work. My school system's email provider is junk, but since I'm a traveling teacher (I bounce between schools) it is very important that I be able to receive and reply to emails from administrators and other teachers. I'm coming from five years of Blackberry email, where all it took was inputting my address and password in the BIS email page and never having to give it a second thought.
So far, here's a rundown on what's happened and what I've tried: 1. Using My Accounts and the stock email program, my email address has been added. It will not connect when set up as a POP3 account; I must set it as an IMAP account to retrieve any emails. No matter what port setting I use (25 or 587), I cannot send or reply to email. 2. Using K-9 email, I am able to download email as POP3 with standard settings (port 110). As with the built-in client, I am unable to reply to or send emails. 3. Before you ask, 587 never worked. I've tried. 4. The email address is configured in accordance with our service provider's instructions.. 5. This issue has occurred in the same manner on both 2.1 and 2.2.
I was under whelmed with the email client which handles POP3 (hotmail, yahoo, verizon, etc.) accounts, and was looking for an "Outlook Mobile" type client, coming from my Moto Q. The stock client just seems to limited, aside from having some issues. Looking around, I came across the K9 Mail client and found that it was available in the Android Market. Its only been installed for a few minutes but in checking the settings/features, its much more robust than the stock client. Many more check intervals, options to set default number of messages, delete from server on delete option. The only caveat on install stated that it may have issues with Hotmail (i.e. Plus or paid accounts may have connection issues) but my basic free Hotmail came thru fine.
Text is much easier to read with the white background, black text and 2 line info display. You can also manage identities, and has more features I don't understand, and probably wont use. With my check interval at 3 hours, I sent a test message from my comcast account (not involved with DROID) just now and got some certificate error message from the program (has its own mail folder for errors), when I performed a manual check/sync. I just ran it again and the message came through. I think it may have been SMTP setting issues, but they seem resolved. Based on the the interface and options alone, I think I'll work with this app.
I put in all my hotmail info for the eris to automatically pull my emails several times a day. After a couple days it just stops working and then I have to reenter all my info again.It is frustrating.Has this happened to anyone else? How can this be fixed.Sorry if this is already covered here, but I did a search and nothing came up.
I was receiving emails on three different accounts up until this morning. I have been in the Application Manager stopping and clearing various services and apps I don't use. Obviously I have not done that to email, but are there any apps or services in there that affect email? I'm wondering if I messed something up by going too far parring down the device of stuff I don't use, or if this has happened to somebody else with an Eris and it's a bug.
I just got off the phone with Verizon Tech Support because my POP3 e-mail was being deleted from the mail server. I have the "Delete mail from server" off and I have performed the Factory Reset. The Tech Rep told me that it is a "known issue" and that a software update will be coming out to fix this issue. The Rep did not know when, but it's in the works.
I am unable to set up any POP3 email accounts. I've tried Hotmail, Windows Live, Simpatico, Yahoo and I always get "user name and password are not correct", but they ARE. I was on the phone with Rogers Tech Support for over an hour and we can't figure out why it's not working.
I'm using the EMail Client "Eudora" on my computer to retrieve messages on a POP3 Server. I don't understand if there is a way to retrieve the same messages from the POP3 Server on my mobile phone. The phone is running Android OS 2.1. I manually added all the information into the native E-Mail application on my phone, and it works fine for a couple hours then stops for a few hours, and then it works fine again, but then stops working again for a few hours, and so on and so on.
In addition, I received messages from 8:07AM to 10:39AM, then received no messages between 10:40AM to 1:42PM. At 1:42PM I started receiving messages again; the weird thing is I only received messages after 1:42PM, I can't retrieve the messages from the gap between 10:40AM and 1:42PM. And yes I'm sure I received messages during that time. I can't figure out any correlation between what I'm doing with the phone, and when the phone receives emails.So, my question - Is there a way to view messages from a POP3 server on my Android OS 2.1 phone using any E-Mail client?
I've been looking at android phones for a while now and I like many other people are looking forward to the Droid X. The problem I'm having as a current Blackberry user is email. I've read an article on androidcentral.com that mentions the limitations of POP3 email on the android OS. They also provide a link to a possible fix by having gmail sync with the POP3 email but gmail will only do so once an hour. With that said is there any other options? I manage a number of websites myself and have a few web servers.
Email is a must to keep in touch with clients and having to wait an hour in between replies would never ever fly. I currently have the Tour, which of course has the horrible trackball, but I'm debating on getting the Droid X (so long as I can get POP3 every 2-3 minutes) or upgrading to the Bold 9650. Having all the cool new features of the Droid X would be neat but certainly not a need. POP3 email and battery life - those are the two things that are a must.
Something weird just happened, all of a sudden when I open my Pop 3 email account on the Droid Inc., read it, then open the same email account on my computer prior to yesterday that email on the Droid Inc would disappear like I wanted it to. Now it remains on the Droid until I manually delete it. I looked on the manual and Internet but could not out how to change it back. One thing that did happen yesterday was I received the new Verizon Droid Inc OTA update Not sure of the update number but its the one that has Slacker Radio Addition. That may be the issue. Any thoughts.
I'm having troubles with Gmail POP server on my HTC Magic.I can send and receive emails from the Magic, but it won't download the emails that are already in the Gmail inbox.I have set up the Gmail account to enable POP for all mail, not just new messages.What am I missing?
I've had my Evo working well with two POP3 accounts. Twice in the past few days I have not been able to send email from the POP accounts, but I can receive email. The first time it happened I cleared the cache on HTC mail program and everything worked again, however that didn't work this time. I have no problem sending email through an active sync account.
I have had BlackBerry phones for a few years. Now switching to the Hero (love it by the way), I am trying to figure out if there is a way to filter the email that comes to my new phone.On BlackBerry, you could go to options, security and firewall. There you could choose to have email only come to your phone if was from someone in your contact list. Basically keeps all junk out.Is there anything similar to this on the Hero, or an app anyone knows of that can do this, or close?This is the main reason I quit using WinMo phones and went to BB.
I'm a proud new owner of the HTC Hero, I have a very specific interest in getting my email 'just so' on my Hero, and I made it work great. I think others may be in this situation so I made some detailed instructions that I thought I'd share in case it helps some people.
First off this is for those who (but not limited to): 1) Use Microsoft Outlook POP3 Mail 2) Want to keep that as your main mail source, but want to receive duplicates on the phone. 3) Want to be able to reply to a message from your phone and have it appear as if you wrote it from your computer. 4) Receive it as fast as possible 5) Conserve battery life 6) Want to use the HTC Mail widget to preview your messages and have a mail envelope icon in your notification bar. 7) Filter spam and other unnecessary messages from getting to your phone
The best way to set up email on an android phone:
Benefits: - Email pushed to you, so its recieved quicker and preserves phone battery life. I went from about 8 hour battery life to about 27 hours. - Combines addresses into one neat mail location - Lets you reply as if you're replying from any of those addresses - Filters spam and unwanted messages from getting to your phone - Many mail options in android by setting it up this way. Ability to flag messages, sort messages, etc. - Lets you view and quickly flip through or delete messages in a widget. - Eliminates the "on behalf of" statement when sending through gmail.
How to set up: - get gmail account - set up gmail account to receive your mail account(s)... as many accounts as you may have. - set up filters to filter spam, and any regular messages you dont want forwarded to your phone - set up outgoing smtp servers instead of using gmail's. I use authsmtp.com. they are good and cheap. This will let you send your messages as if they were from your Outlook account and not send it saying from <your gmail address> on behalf of <your address> - If you have troubles sending, you might want to set your smtp server's option to send as SSL, and do the same in Gmail...then they should talk nicely.
You probably have a bunch of other settings you want to set between Gmail and your Outlook as well. For example, you want to set your Outlook to leave the messages on the server, and then probably delete them after 2 days (so they don't build up eating up hard drive space). Then in Gmail, make sure that that too does not delete the messages from the server, so that if Gmail checks it first, it leaves it there for your main Outlook account to still get. Gmail is very powerful, as is Outlook so go through your settings to make sure they are all set up the way you want. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things you need to do, so take this guide as a starting point.
On your phone...
Menu->Settings->Data Syncronization->Google - have auto-sync turned off, & background data turned on (for other apps that likely need it) - shut off gmail syncronization from the settings menu.
- set up microsoft exchange activesync with gmail: the whole point of doing this instead of just using the gmail app is to do two things: 1) let us use HTC's nice mail widget to preview and flip through messages, and 2) to have an envelope indicating we have new mail up in the notification bar instead of an @ sign that the Gmail App shows.
Also, if you just set it up as POP3 mail (which you could do to achieve the same thing) the mail notifications will be much slower, and it will eat up your battery life. The Exchange ActiveSync will preserve battery life and push mail to you like the Gmail app does. So again the point here is so you can use the HTC Mail Widget (2 points above)
So to set up ActiveSync with Gmail: email address (all lower case): email@example.com server address (all lower case):m.google.com domain:<leave blank> username (all UPPER CASE): USER@GMAIL.COM password:<your password>
- Probably do not sync your contacts, this can screw up what you already have. - Schedule as items arrive.
Now you can add the HTC Mail widget to neatly view messages in a widget, and you'll have an envelope at the top when you get new mail instead of the gmail @ sign, save battery, filter out spam and other unnecessary messages from getting to your phone, and other reasons listed above.
I have a new Desire with T Mobile and I have gone through the automated email set up via my "POP3" account with Ntlworld. Problem is, whilst I receive my emails, I cannot send emails. To be honest, this is not an area that I am very good at, so I might be missing something daft. Does anyone know of something obvious I can do, or can they help me to check my settings.
Well the problems started 3 weeks ago when i noticed whenever i move around the headphones inside the jack, the music stops or one of the ear buds stop working. so i thought it was the headphones since skullcandies don't last long. i got a new pair and listened again but it STILL HAPPENED . (btw, the phone is not rooted)
The Phone still plays media fine without the headphones, so i thought no big deal. NEW PROBLEMS started to occur. The phone would NOT PLAY Media files whatsoever. (games, music, notifications, APPS ) every time it happens i have to restart the phone.
I have a work email pop3, is not a g mail account. Well, i have putted to be notified in 1 hour if i have new emails the problem is the phone didn't check the emails and didn't have the notifications. only if i enter on the "Mail" application i have the new emails.. if i didn't enter, this didn't check the emails. What is the problem?. I have APN droid installed and i have deactivated the 3g 2g gaps. But i have configuration the WIFI to stay connected always.
Whenever I turn on Pandora then lock my phone, it will finish the current song then stop. So I have to keep the phone awake, or keep unlocking it to keep Pandora playing. Has anyone else run into this issue, and does anyone know of a remedy?
