This thread is regarding the issue with POP. I'm not sure if you are "allowed" to run POP from say a desktop and IMAP from a mobile (I only run a desktop). You may need to use the appropriate IMAP settings for all your devices.
In an earlier post I wasn't sure if you could operate POP and IMAP on different devices. After some research, apparently you can, however, you may run into issues if you operate different devices, like say a desktop computer, an iPad and a cell phone. With IMAP properly set up, the varies devices will be "in synch" and will all contain the same e-mails. This requires a connection to work, but that connection should be available most times.
If one device is POP, then, although you may work "offline" on that device, the other devices may not synch properly, so if you delete an e-mail on one device, it may still be present on another. Or, if not properly set up, if you download to a POP device with incorrect settings, the e-mails will not even be viewable on the other devices. The default settings on most e-mail clients (like Outlook) for POP will delete the e-mails on the Yahoo/Rogers server.
If you operate more than one device for e-mails, IMAP is recommended for all devices.
A few more items came to mind recently.
1. If your e-mails are no longer in your Yahoo in-box and you don't have them on one of your devices, perhaps you can find them in the Yahoo "Trash" folder. E-mails may be moved there and kept for a certain period of time, depending on your Yahoo settings.
2. If e-mails are on one device, but not another, you should be able to "forward" those e-mails so that you have them on the other device. Just remember not to "reply" on the other device since you'll be replying to yourself on forwarded e-mails.
3. If the e-mails are not available anywhere, try contacting Yahoo as they may be able to "recover" them...
Try to use "legacy.pop.mail.yahoo.com" as your Incoming mail server
Instead of "pop.broadband.rogers.com"
p.s. I am using Outlook 2007
I can't anything to work. Maybe it's time to revert back to snail mail... does anyone know if stamps will be going on sale soon???!!!
I assume you've added "@rogers.com" to your username?
Have you tried "pop.mail.yahoo.com" for the incoming server setting, instead of the rogers one?
Yes, I already had that in my username before. I also tried pop.mail.yahoo.com, legacy.pop.mail.yahoo.com, and switching to IMAP... although I'm not sure what server to use with that.
Are the incoming and outgoing port nubmers 995 and 465?
