See: The links I put turned out to be only temporary links so, if you want to verify the information here on the Virgin Media's help pages, you're looking for the documents titled:
'How do I download mail from the same account on more than one PC or mobile device, using "recent" mode?'
'E-mail settings for addresses ending in @blueyonder.co.uk' 'E-mail settings for addresses ending in @virginmedia.com' 'E-mail settings for addresses ending in @ntlworld.com' 'E-mail settings for addresses ending in @virgin.net'
It would work without the "recent: " but, if I'm reading the Virginmedia help pages right, e-mails that were picked up on one device (e.g. a phone) may not appear on another device (e.g. a desktop PC).
i have a nokia 3230 on o2 payg gprs. i can send emails but not retrieve them directly to my mobile. i used the settings from the forum but no joy. any idea's?
These are my IMAP settings for Yahoo which work perfectly on my Desire:
INCOMING SERVER: imap-ssl.mail.yahoo.com SECURITY TYPE: SSL SERVER PORT: 993
OUTGOING SERVER: smtp.mail.yahoo.com SECURITY TYPE: SSL SERVER PORT: 465
I think the Yahoo settings in the list are quite out of date. I'm not sure if the yahoo.co.uk server settings even work anymore. I use these yahoo.com IMAP settings even though I have a yahoo.co.uk account it still works fine. I think these settings should be used regardless of the type of account you have.
I have only recently discovered (like an hour ago) the incoming SSL settings. Before I found this I was using the standard non-secure server which is:
INCOMING SERVER: imap.mail.yahoo.com SECURITY TYPE: None SERVER PORT: 993
