POP3 Settings for ISP's

Hi, I'm compiling a list of POP3/IMAP settings for the various ISP's out there.

If anyone has any corrections to this list, or has others to add, can you please post your replies.




Thanks,
Pete.

Settings for LG Viewty

Hello there

Your'e chart is great, but can still not get any email to work on my LG Viewty other than the o2. On the settings section for the email (on the phone), after the SMTP authentication it has entries for SMTP username and password. Trouble is I am not sure what it needs here - the ISP's SMTP username or o2's SMTP username ? Whichever I try it does not seem to work.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks Gasboy

RE:

So it's pop.orange.com and smtp.orange.com for the incoming and outgoing server addresses now for freeserve.co.uk, fsnet.co.uk, etc?

Thanks.

Pete

POP3 Settings for ISP's

Many thanks but it is not that which is causng the problem. You can actually set the pop3 and smtp to wanadoo.co.uk and it works fine.

The problem seems to lie with either the o2 accessing other ISP emails or the LG viewty settings being in the wrong way. I have tred every combination can thnk of but can not get any email to work ther than orange.

I've got the same problem and noticed there wasn't any reply to this question so can anyone help please?

I've also tried configuring the settings that many times all to no avail-even followed the instructions kindly linked too but still nothing.
