Re: Playbook email via bridge

If you are using a POP3 or IMAP mail server, the only way to connect to either of them is to use a WIFI, bridge only work with some thing like HOTMAIL, I do not know about gmail since I do  not use this system but I would think that it might work as well

Using the Playbook and the Z10 and the Z30 and loving them
