Setting E-mail in the Playbook

[ Edited ]

I was FORCED into a update after I had already updated last week, and this time thwe Playbook was reset to factory settings so I lost everything

 

Now I am trying to setup the e-mail accounts again, but sincer I do not remember what are the settings for the Rogers e-mail account I am hoping that somebody can help me with that, I do remember that I can not use the same setting as my desktop because the desktop use the POP3, and the Playbook is incapable of using that POP3 because Rogers is using Yahoo as a background server

 

Also, if I could get how to setup the CARDDAV and CALDAV for the Rogers accounts

 

 

Thank you in advance

Re: Setting E-mail in the Playbook

You can look up your carrier's e-mail settings from the website.
http://www.rogers.com/web/Rogers.portal?Ntt=Email+Settings&N&_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=support_results

That link above should give you all the information you need to add your Rogers e-mail account(s) to the PlayBook.

I know a few who have used car/calDAV and owncloud to sync contacts and calender entries. I have never used it, and cannot really comment.

Re: Setting E-mail in the Playbook

If yahoo is the email client being used by Rogers try the following: Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465) Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995) Yahoo is a provider for several ISPs including ATT in the US. Let us know if this works...

Re: Setting E-mail in the Playbook

The POP setting does not work with the Rogers account(s), it only work with the desktop programs,

 

Thanks for the suggestion

Re: Setting E-mail in the Playbook

Sorry you are correct... I use IMAP settings I use are below:

 

  • Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
  • Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL/TLS)

ATT is my ISP and they use Yahoo for email provider.

The Settings in this link that you already provided above, are for Iphone or Ipad ( I do not know which of the Idevice has e-mail), but those settings are for the Apple devices and it is stated so on the page
