I'm travelling in the US and roaming on AT&T and pretty much since I crossed the border I can't get email on my phone. Works through safari but the mail app says the password is incorrect, which its not. I have data roaming on. Help?!?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Huh.. that is odd...
I am at work, and i just tested here from my pc.
Pinged pop.broadband.rogers.com and it DID get a reply, so its not blocked.
So, maybe it IS possible that it is being blocked by your bell internet? Are you able to try that from a PC at home? (prefereably wired.. just to illiminate the wireless part out)
Click start, then run, then type in
This will bring up a dos box.
And see if it gets a reply.
It is a Rogers email address and I also have problems when at home on Wifi. My internet provider at home is not Rogers (if that makes any difference).
incoming mail host server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
outgoing mail SMTP - smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
I don't see any POP settings..
you might be using the wrong server settings, i did some searching on the rogers.com web site and found these:
Nester: Yes, its likley your server settings, that may be causing the issue.
SOMETIMES, some servers, are not accesible, if you are on another provider.
IE: I had a rogers email address from at home, when i went to college. There i was on bell (only choice). My incomming mail would work just fine.. but i couldnt send anything with the rogers SMTP server. I had to use the BELL one for it... weither bell blocked the rogers one, or was just not accessible..
PoP = incomming mail server. Give the PC settings there that Pauly listed a try. That is what i have my rogers email address set up on my iphone with.
I am able to receive and send emails... both on wifi at home (rogers), celular, and wifi at work (bell)
Thanks all! I tried playing around with the settings and it doesn't seem to make a difference. I imagine it's because I'm not using Rogers at home for internet so I am giving up for now... guess I'll just have to rely on the old fashioned way of checking email!
That SHOULDNT make a difference.
Again, i am NOT on rogers at work, where i am sitting right now, on the BELL interet, on wifi.. and my phone just got an email 2 mins ago.
Here are my settings:
Incomming mail server
Outgoing Mail Server:
I know in the past, people used to be able to qualify the username, without having the FULL email address.. so if its only the short name, try the full email address there.
