Re: Gmail won't fetch rogers POP emails from port 995 since Feb. 01/17

help!  ive tried every solution i can find but i refuse to give up.  just switched from rogers to bell but i want to use GMAIL instead of a provider's email account.  I need to import my emails from ROGERS mail to GMAIL but I keep getting the following error:

There was a problem while connecting to pop.broadband.rogers.com

 

I also tried using pop.mail.yahoo.com and was unsuccessful

 

i have tried pop.broadband.com and pop.mail.yahoo.com and neither will work. I get:

There was a problem while connecting to pop.broadband.rogers.com

or,

Gmail couldn't identify your POP server.

HELP

Greetings and welcome to our Community @Gurpop!

 

Please keep in mind that while we provide POP set-up instructions, we recommend that you set up email using IMAP as it’s designed for use with web-based email and multiple computers/devices simultaneously.

 

Another potential issue here might be that you need to set up an app password: https://ca.help.yahoo.com/kb/rogers/account/generate-third-party-passwords-sln15241.html

 

I would suggest switching to IMAP. If you're still experiencing issues after that, post again here to let the Community know what error you're getting.

 

Regards,

RogersCorey
